It’s OK if in the last 48 hours you’ve caught PhiloMania, perhaps from the viral Twitter trend after Leonardo DiCaprio mispronounced “Philomena” during the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards.

The Weinstein Co., which distributed the film, has offered a definition of the condition, symptoms and -- perhaps most important -- a cure on Buzzfeed.

The studio listed the five stages of PhiloMania, calling it an obsession prompting you to tell friends and family to see the fact-based film. The list suggests that true PhiloManiacs will name their first-born, girl or boy, Philomena with an eye raise of approval from the film’s star, Judi Dench.

If that’s not enough persuasion, a collection of GIFs from “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Aviator” and other DiCaprio films detail symptoms of the condition.

DiCaprio mispronounced the film while presenting the Golden Globe for lead actress in a motion picture, drama. Director Stephen Frears’ film is based on the book "The Lost Child of Philomena Lee" and follows a woman, forced by an Irish convent to give her son up for adoption, searching for him years later with help from a weary journalist (Steve Coogan).
