Leonardo DiCaprio has become an unwilling Tumblr meme due to his three previous Oscar nominations.

Users of the micro-blogging website Tumblr have long had a running joke relating to DiCaprio's Oscar hopes.

The joke has been running for so long that users of the website are genuinely excited that DiCaprio might finally scoop the award in 2014 following his nomination for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

See below a gallery of some of the memes to come out of the nomination.

During last years Oscars, GIFs and videos of Jennifer Lawrence (another darling of the site) falling over gained hundreds of thousands of 'notes' before the show even ended. The aforementioned images were also photoshopped for comedy, resulting in even more attention on the young actress.

It is expected that iif DiCaprio wins the Oscar, he will be given the same treatment by the site.
