‘The Revenant’, ‘Mad Max’ and ‘The Martian’ Lead Oscar Nominations

Oscars2016

Although you may be experiencing a down-swing from the holidays’s end and the shiver-inducing chill of winter, you have the excitement of the 2016 awards season to look forward to (woo-hoo!).

The 2016 Academy Awards, better known as The Oscars, is set for its 88th annual ceremony to take place during the end of February. But which actors and films will be up for nomination? Today, your curiosity ends because the list of nominees is out.

The Revenant is dominating the nominations list with a whopping 12 nominations. The modern day western film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is up for the most awards over any film nominated this year. In fact, this movie is only three nominations away from setting the record for the Academy Awards’s most nominated film of all time (All About Eve and The Titanic currently hold this record with 14). Following The Revenant with most nominations is Mad Max: Fury Road with ten. Finally, to round off the top three films is The Martian, starring Matt Damon, with seven nominations. Wow!

Maybe this will be the year that Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins that Oscar he’s been waiting for all his life.

Catch the Oscars on February 28, live from Los Angeles, hosted by Chris Rock, airing on CTV and CTV GO and check out the complete list of nominations below.
