An elated Leonardo DiCaprio gets his Oscar engraved

You'd be fascinated too, if you watched your own Academy Award get stamped with your name

Leonardo DiCaprio's Academy Awards win is currently one of the hottest topics of the week, but last night after his win, the actor had something else to look forward to: getting his name engraved on his Oscar trophy for the first time.

Clearly on top of the world but keeping his excitement very professionally in check, he even cracked a small joke.

"You do this every year?" he asked the woman handling his trophy. "I wouldn't know."

Watch closely and you can see the woman shaking (probably in awe of being in the presence of Leo) as she fixes the screws back into the plate. She then handed him a card with instructions on how to take care of the gold-plated award.

"I have to maintain it?" he asked. Well, yes, Leo. Keep it away from bears, out of the freezing cold, preferably in a nice glass cabinet at home (not a dead horse, please).

Leonardo's Best Actor win at the Academy Awards has become the most tweeted-about Oscar moment in history at 440,000 tweets per minute during the telecast, according to Twitter statistics. He beat the hype that Ellen DeGeneres got from her 2014 Oscar selfie, which set the previous record at 255,000 tweets per minute.

Double victory tastes far better than bison liver.

In other news, here's a photo of Leo enjoying the Girl Scout cookies he bought during the awards ceremony (let the new memes begin).
