The party doesn't start until Leonardo DiCaprio wins big!

While there were plenty of reasons to celebrate inside the Dolby Theatre on Oscar night, the real fun may not have begun until the cameras turned off.

E! News can confirm The Revenant star celebrated his big Best Actor win with a private party at an undisclosed location.

Around 25 people including Lenny Kravitz, Ben Affleck and Richie Akiva showed up to a private home as awards season came to an end. The guests were invited to the bash after receiving small gold Oscar statuette pins.

A source tells us that the small, intimate gathering was a success and that the final guests didn't leave until the early morning hours.

To say the 2016 awards season was a big one for Leo would certainly be an understatement. After taking home a Golden Globe as the Best Actor in a Drama Movie, the 41-year-old started a winning streak that continued all the way to the Oscars.

"Thank you all so very much. Thank you to the Academy, thank you to all of you in this room," he told the crowd after receiving a standing ovation. "To my parents, none of this would be possible without you. My friends, I love you dearly. You know who you are."

He continued, "Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted."

Awards aside, there was also one person who may have made Leo's season a bit better. Yes, we're talking about his Titanic co-star Kate Winslet.

Whether sharing innocent hugs on the red carpet or cheering each other on from their seats, this pair's consistent reunions may have left everyone a big winner.
