DICAPRIO: Well . . . I think I'm going to just say that, uh, I'm happy. And I think that the country has taken a turn for the better, you know? And I think a lot of things that have been sort of uh, subdued politically and a lot of things that people have wanted to happen are hopefully going to happen now. It's really up to the Democrats to, uh -- not to say things anymore, but to take action now, and I think they will.
Q: And the Oscar buzz on "The Departed"?
DICAPRIO: And the Oscar buzz on it? Great.
Q: Did you feel with this role that you'd be competing with yourself come Oscar time?
DICAPRIO: I have no... I don't know. Once again, that goes into the hands of all you people to pick this all apart and critique it and compliment it or insult it. We'll see. Thank you, guys.
