Who knew! Leo had a *teeny* cameo with Brie Larson in Room

It's rare that a Best Actor and Best Actress from the same Oscars year feature in a film together – so rare, in fact, that it hasn't happened since 1997's As Good As it Gets – but this year that's exactly what went down. 

Leonardo DiCaprio may have scooped the Academy Award for his role in The Revenant last Sunday night, but he also makes an appearance in one other very noteworthy film from this year's contenders, Lenny Abrahamson's Room.

Well, kinda.

US studio A24, who distributed the film Stateside, took to Twitter earlier this week to point out that Leo's face does indeed appear just a few feet away from Best Actress winner Brie Larson during one scene:

See what they did there? 

Unlike Leo's cameo, both Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson had moving, speaking roles in As Good As It Gets, before being awarded Best Actress and Best Actor respectively for their parts in the film.

If you ask us though, the role of Teen Heartthrob Poster should definitely have earned Leo some kind of award,
