2016 Oscar Nominations: The Complete List | Film News

88thOscars_Dream_4

 

The 2016 Oscar race was always set to be an interesting one, whatever paths the voters decided to travel, the outcome would always be interesting. The nominations were announced early this morning, by directors Guillermo del Toro and Ang Lee, 13 Hours star John Krasinski and Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

 

While the list below was foreseeable, it still contains a few surprises and snubs – like one has grown to expect. Many believe that this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s year, and that he will finally bag that coveted Oscar. I sure hope so, I have yet to see The Revenant but I love everything DiCaprio touches – which doesn’t exactly make me an impartial judge.

 

DiCaprio did walk away with the Golden Globe for Best Actor, so maybe this is his years. The Revenant leads the race with a total of 12 nominations. Now, let’s talk about the surprises and snubs. The biggest surprise was that Tom Hardy was finally acknowledged. He has been completely overlooked this award season, which is mind-blowing. His performance in Legend was nothing short of spectacular. Here he receives a Best Supporting Actor nod for his work in The Revenant.

 

The years biggest snub was for Carol, while Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara managed to collect nominations, the acclaimed film failed to pick up a Best Picture nomination – causing quite a frenzy among fans. Another shocker was that Ridley Scott didn’t pick up a nomination for Best Director, after the Golden Globes it seemed like a sure thing. Also, where is the love for Quentin Tarantino? He deserves recognition for his work on the riveting The Hateful Eight.

 

Other snubs include, Jane Fonda, Steve Carell, Aaron Sorkin, and Straight Outta Compton which managed to land a nomination for Best Original Screenplay. But, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and director F. Gary Gray were completely overlooked. This also leads to another thing, this Oscars is way too white. Where is Will Smith? Samuel L. JacksonRyan Coogler?

 

The Oscars ceremony airs on ABC February 28. Check out the full list below.
