Leonardo DiCaprio fans are planning an Oscars party in Leicester Square

Kate Lloyd

It seems London loves Leonardo DiCaprio right now. The star, who's appeared in 37 films, has become an awards show punchline for never receiving an Oscar in his 25 years of acting. But that might change on Sunday.

The 41-year-old stands a strong chance of scooping an Academy Award for Best Actor this year, thanks to his performance in 'The Revenant', and it seems lots of Londoners have their fingers crossed for him.

The Odeon in Leicester Square has changed its sign to read Leodeon (geddit?). They've even hoisted a huge model of an Academy Award up onto their wall to hammer the point home.

Meanwhile, more than 20,000 fans are showing their support on a Facebook group named 'If Leonardo DiCaprio wins the Oscar, everyone meet in Leicester Square'.

The group explains: 'In conjunction with other events that will be taking place in Barcelona, Madrid and Dublin, we decided to host a national gathering in London and show our support for Leo. Spread the word and make this go viral. C'mon, let's go crazy together! Celebrate the impossible! #UnitedforLeo #OscarforLeo.'

Fingers crossed he wins, I guess.
