The $135 million budget blockbuster - `The Revenant` - leads the 88th Oscar nominations with 12 nominations, followed by the hit action movie `Mad Max` with 10 nominations.

The American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just announced the list of nominations for the 88th Academy Awards. The Revenant is the second consecutive film by director Alejandro Inarritu to captivate the Oscar season, after last year’s Birdman.

`The Revenant` swept the 2016 Oscar nominations.

This is the sixth time the Titanic actor has been nominated for an Oscar.

Behind The Revenant in the number of Oscar nominations are action blockbusters Mad Max: Fury Road (10 nominations) and The Martian (7 nominations).

`Mad Max: Fury Road` received 10 Oscar nominations.

Contrary to fans’ expectations, the movie Carol did not make it into the `Excellent Movie` nomination.

In the male actor category, DiCaprio competes with two strong opponents, Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl.

Besides Brie Larson (Room), Cate Blanchett (Carol), Jennifer Lawrence (Joy) are two prominent names in the `Best Actress` nomination.

`Room` emerges as an impressive independent work.

Son of Saul – the film that just won the `Best Foreign Film` award at the Golden Globes, was not surprising when it was nominated for an Oscar.

Son of Saul was previously known to the audience thanks to winning the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Embrace of the Serpent won the Art Cinema Award in Directors’ Week also in Cannes in May.

The 88th Academy Awards ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on the evening of February 28.
