Mad Max Fury Road 1

It’s difficult to even care much about this announcement when mourning the loss of a film icon, but alas, the 2016 Oscar nominations have been unveiled this morning. Ahead of a ceremony on February 28th, Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Guillermo del Toro, John Krasinski, and Ang Lee were on hand to announce the 88th Oscars nominations.

Leading the pack is The Revenant, which picked up 12 nominations, while Mad Max: Fury Road was close behind with 10. The Martian had 7, while Carol, Bridge of Spies and Spotlight each picked up 6, but sadly, Todd Haynes‘ magnificent drama was left out of the Best Picture and Best Director race. See the full list below.
