2016 Academy Awards Nominations: The Complete List



the-revenant

The nominations have been announced for the 88th Annual Academy Awards, and we’ve got the whole list right here for you to check out.

It’s certainly a crowded field, leaving some expected shoe-ins by the wayside and giving us a few surprise entries as well.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu could have another great year following Birdman‘s big wins. The Revenant has received an impressive 12 nominations all up, including nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and nods for both Leonardo DiCaprio (Best Actor) and Tom Hardy (Best Supporting Actor).



It’s fantastic to see a ton of recognition going to Mad Max: Fury Road. The post-apocalyptic action film has earned itself 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for George Miller.

Many were expecting Star Wars: The Force Awakens to sneak in at the last minute and populate a heap of the major categories, but that wasn’t to be. Still, J.J. Abrams’ hugely successful franchise entry was given five nods in technical categories.

Much is being said about yet another “white Oscars.” Yep, no nod for Michael B. Jordan in Creed, nothing for Idris Elba or young Abraham Attah for Beasts of No Nation, and no nomination for Will Smith’s performance in Concussion. Straight Outta Compton‘s cast also went wanting.

Other surprises include the lack of a screenwriting nomination for Quentin Tarantino, although The Hateful Eight did manage to get Jennifer Jason Leigh a Best Supporting Actress nod, and no Best Picture and Best Director nominations for Carol and director Todd Haynes.
