The 88th Academy Awards nominations were announced today with The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Martian leading the pack. The reactions are almost entertaining as the awards themselves as people give thanks, point out snubs and denounce the Academy entirely.
Check out our round up of Oscar nominations reactions and catch the Oscars on February 28, live from Los Angeles, hosted by Chris Rock, airing on CTV and CTV GO.
Beyond proud of George and the entire Mad Max Fury Road cast and crew! It's heartwarming to see all of the love streaming in!

Oscar noms out. Couldn't care as Alan Rickman is gone & could have done every job on those movies as well, women included. Stunning talent.
