JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Leo DiCaprio had been nominated for an Academy Award six times over the last 22 years. Last night he finally broke his losing streak and used the opportunity to deliver a save-the-earth speech.

[Clip Begins]

LEONARDO DICAPRIO: We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this, for our children's children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

[Clip Ends]

WATTERS: So the guy finally gets an Academy Award and he's talking about the weather. What's going on here?

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): It's the exact same speech he delivered at the Golden Globes when he won the Golden Globes. So yeah, he planned it. He predicted it. Oh, but there are three or four people who talk about climate change last night. There was this costume designer for Mad Max. She said something, I don't -- she went there, and then another producer did as well. So it was the common theme. There's so many things that are going on in the world, like ISIS is trying to kill us --.


BOLLING: Focus on something else other than the weather.
