Leonardo DiCaprio (finally) took the Oscar for best actor, and his fans on Twitter can’t contain their happiness.

The Internet offered up memes on top of memes for DiCaprio – who after years of being nominated, finally snagged the award for his role in The Revenant.

Rather than focus on his win (a long overdue one, according to many fans), the actor used his acceptance speech to call attention to global warming.

“Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet to find snow. Climate change is real. It is happening right now,” he said. “It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.’

Fans were just as enthusiastic about his speech as they were about his win, with many quoting some of his most poignant points.

And of course, there was one thing everyone wanted to say – congratulations, Leo!
