The talented actor was sure to attend the Governors Ball and the Vanity Fair after party before he then headed out to grab a very late dinner at Argo restaurant.
Leonardo, 41, was still humble in victory as he made low-key arrivals to each event with a small smile on his face and his beloved award in hand.
Many of the star’s fellow filmmakers couldn’t hide their joy as they joined him to celebrate the big win.
Leo was spotted posing for a selfie snap with none other than director Steven Spielberg and producer Arnon Milchan at the Governors Ball immediately after the show.
But after winning big, DiCaprio had other things on his mind – most importantly his mother. ‘Where’s my mom?’, Leonardo was heard yelling when he and his entourage arrived at the Ball held on the top deck of the Dolby Theatre.
As aides went in search of the newly-minted Best Actor Oscar winner’s mother Irmelin Indenbirken, DiCaprio tucked into a slice of chicken pizza.

Holding on tight: Leo then made his way to the Vanity Fair afterparty where he posed on the red carpet with his new trophy and then went on to rub shoulders with fellow stars
‘I’m so hungry’, he was heard to say.
Then he begged to be allowed to eat in peace as his table was swarmed by well-wishers and photographers. Soon security officers ringed his table to keep onlookers at bay. ‘Leo is asking for a little bit of privacy’, one of the security detail said.

The actor was snapped with the likes of Ben Affleck and Elton John, but it appears he soon just wanted a bit of peace and quiet.

Excuse me: But it appeared Leo just wanted a bit of peace and quiet towards the end of the night as he stopped by Argo restaurant for a celebratory meal with his family and friends before finally heading home
And that’s exactly what he got when he stopped by Argo restaurant for a celebratory meal.
Leo treated his mother to a dinner date in celebration of his win and looked every inch the gentleman as he gallantly helped her step out of the car
An added bonus on the night for the star would surely have been the global reaction to his long-awaited win, with fans lining the streets with masks of his face in hand as they celebrated the happy news.
During the moment when he finally received his Oscar, the actor used his lengthy acceptance speech to deliver a lecture on climate change, and was able to speak for a longer period than other winners when the producers failed to play ‘wrap-it-up’ music as he went well past his allotted time of 45 seconds.
‘Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world…climate change is real,’ said DiCaprio. ‘It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations but for all people.’

‘Let us not take our planet for granted,’ he concluded. ‘I do not take tonight for granted.’
While an advocate for addressing the threat of climate change, 41-year-old DiCaprio was reported to have taken six private jet flights in just six weeks in 2014.
However, despite the frequent use of private air travel – which is known to be a big source of pollution – the actor has dedicated a great deal of his star power to get the word out about the environment.
