Oscars 2016 Nominations Announced!

The Nominations for the 88th Annual Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars, have been announced!

Leading the pack with 12 nominations is the gritty tale The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio who has also picked up a nomination for Best Actor. Just behind that is Mad Max: Fury Road with an explosive 10 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director for George Miller and Best Cinematography. With 7 nominations comes Ridley Scott's The Martian starring Matt Damon who is also up for Best Actor with Spotlight, Bridge of Spies & Carol all earning 6 nominations.

The biggest shock to most people will be the snub to Carol as the stunning period romance from Todd Haynes missed out on a Best Picture nomination with the Academy favouring to vote for 8 films for the award instead of the maximum of 10.

Check out the full list of nominations below and let us know your predictions for the winners!

The Oscars Award ceremony will take place on the evening of Sunday 28th February 2016.
