2016 Oscar Nominations ('The Revenant' & 'Mad Max' Lead Way)

Post by WyldeMan on 1/14/2016, 2:22 pm

Fox’s Leonardo DiCaprio frontier thriller The Revenant and Warner Bros/Village Roadshow’s wild ride Mad Max: Fury Road led nominations this morning for the 88th Oscars. The list revealed at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had a healthy mix of the expected and surprises as the awards season has officially hit its peak.

The Revenant earned a leading 12 noms, including Best Director for Alejandro G. Iñárritu, who is back in both the Best Picture and Director race for the second year in a row after winning both categories for Birdman in 2015. This year’s director race is as interesting for who didn’t make the list as for who did: The Martian‘s Ridley Scott and Bridge Of Spies‘ Steven Spielberg are major names absent, though both of their films are up for Best Picture.

Also on the Best Pic list: Mad Max, which roared to 10 noms overall including Best Director for George Miller and a host of craft categories. That movie seemed to get the most applause from the crowd at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater where the noms were unveiled, though nobody got more love in the room than Sylvester Stallone, who picked up a Supporting Actor nom for playing Rocky in Creed — his first Oscars noms since being up for Best Actor and Original Screenplay for Rocky in 1977.

The rest of the Best Picture noms: Paramount’s The Big Short, Disney/DreamWorks’ Bridge Of Spies, Fox Searchlight’s Brooklyn, A24’s Room and Open Road’s Spotlight. The latter had been considered a front-runner most of the season and picked up six noms today, including Supporting Actor and Actress for Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams, Director for Tom McCarthy and Original Screenplay for McCarthy and co-writer Josh Singer.

Brooklyn‘s Saoirse Ronan and Room‘s Brie Larson landed Best Actress noms along with Cate Blanchett for Carol, Jennifer Lawrence for Joy and Charlotte Rampling for 45 Years. On the Best Actor side: Trumbo‘s Bryan Cranston, The Martian‘s Matt Damon, Steve Jobs‘ Michael Fassbender, defending champ Eddie Redmayne of The Danish Girl and DiCaprio’s Revenant — he is cemented as the front-runner after talking Best Actor at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

Missing this year, as it was last year, was a nomination for any minority actor. That’s sure to be a concern of the Academy, which has sought to expand its membership base to embrace greater diversity. Deadline’s Pete Hammond reports that already there are whispers of a new catchphrase to match last year’s #OscarsSoWhite Twitter trend: “We Dream In White,” a play on the Oscars’ slogan this year “We Dream In Gold.”

As for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? The top-grossing movie in U.S. history snagged five noms: for Film Editing, John Williams’ score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects.

Damn, no screenplay, directing, or best picture nods for Tarantino? Homie will be pissed. Especially about the screenplay one.

Lead Actor is a two man race, Leo and Redmayne.

The latter schmoozed, hustled and campaigned hard for Oscar last year. He's a darling among Academy voters, DiCaprio is not.

Plus he played a Transgender, who's current movement is a big deal these days.

It's  rumored that Leo tried to launch a smear campaign against
McConeaghy. That failed, Matty still won for Dallas Buyers Club.

Fassy didn't bother campaigning, when he was nominated for 12YAS.

Don't see that changing, plus the FAUXmance with Vikander won't help

Cranston is awesome, but is a dark horse.
Matt Damon could get it, if they opt not to give Eddie another win.

From my POV, Leo isn't a lock like Stallone appears to be.

That was exactly the first thing I looked for when it was announced. Not surprising, the Academy of Cunts is all about hardcore cock sucking for whatever it popular at the moment and dudes getting their dicks chopped off by a doctor is all the rage but getting your dick shot off isn't.

Though I'm happy to see that they are finally paying attention to Tom Hardy and all it took was having two competing Oscar movies but unfortunately he's up against Sly in his first nomination since the original Rocky in '77.
