The Revenant leads the way with 12, including Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro G. Iñárritu), Best Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio, who might finally get his first Oscar next month). Mad Max: Fury Road got a lot of love too with 10 nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director (George Miller). The Martian took 7, among them Best Picture, Best Actor (Matt Damon) and Adapted Screenplay (Drew Goddard). The rest of the Best Picture nominees are Bridge of Spies (6 nods), Spotlight (6 nods), The Big Short (5 nods), Room (4 nods) and Brooklyn (3 nods).
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has 5 nominations, film editing, original score, visual effects, sound editing and sound mixing. While the Academy snubbed them for the Best Picture award, Carol and The Danish Girl got a total of 6 and 4 nominations respectively in other categories.
Also of note, Sylvester Stallone is back at the Oscars after 39 years, nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Creed. This could be his first statue (he was nominated twice in 1977 for Rocky but did not win). The awards will be given on February 28th.
