It’s clear that we too are hit by Oscars fever. By the time this issue hits newsstands, it’ll be revealed if Leo (finally) wins an Oscar for his portrayal of frontiersman Hugh Glass in the Revenant. Regardless of the results on Oscar night (Feb 28), he’s still one of our favourite leading men on celluloid, and we celebrate him with our March cover, along with other great content in the issue. Enjoy.
