DiCaprio took the time to talk climate change and it was everything we could do not to jump up and down. "I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let's not take this planet for granted, I do not take this night for granted."

I'm Sam, the senior editor at MarieClaire.com. I love shining a light on awesome people doing things that matter, cool products and hacks for everyday life, and advice you'll actually use. I'm pretty much always looking for the perfect GIF for any situation. When I'm not trolling the internet, I can be found dancing like a weirdo or napping like it's my job. Right now, I'm probably eating or drinking something filled with sugar or booze. (Sorry, mom.)
