If everything goes to plan, DiCaprio will soon be the proud owner of a cast-iron Ascar instead of an Oscar.
This was the fourth time DiCaprio has been nominated for an Academy Award and walked away empty-handed.
Members of the Chelyabinsk Chamber Theater wanted to give DiCaprio the Ascar, a 9.4-inch figurine that weighs more than three pounds and looks like a body-builder, in honor of World Theater Day on March 27.
The group also wants to give the actor a certificate naming him as an honorary member of the theater.
Theater member Alla Tsypordei hopes to get the gifts to DiCaprio through “friends in common.”
“We have several options of delivery, but now I don’t know which one we will choose,” Tsypordei told the Itar-Tass News Agency.
The figure was produced in the Kasli factory of “art and architectural cast-iron molding.”
