′The Revenant′ Starring Leonardo Dicaprio Tops List Of Oscar Nominees

The nominations for Hollywood's most glamorous award have been revealed with "The Revenant" obtaining 12 nods, and "Mad Max: Fury Road" following with 10 nominations. Ridley Scott's "The Martian" got seven bids.

Leonardo Dicaprio in THE REVERENT

You can expect these films to be called out very often during the 88th annual Academy Awards ceremony to be held on Sunday, February 28. The survival thriller "The Revenant" and the dystopian action movie "Mad Max: Fury Road" obtained the most nominations, 12 and 10 respectively, as revealed by the Academy on Thursday (14.01.2015) in Beverly Hills.

A first Oscar for DiCaprio?
Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for his portrayal of the 19th-century frontiersman Hugh Glass in "The Revenant," which was already among the big winners at the Golden Globes last Sunday with its three prizes.
Experts in the trade are convinced that DiCaprio will claim his first Oscar for his strong performance in the film. Predicting his nomination, columnist Scott Feinberg for the magazine "The Hollywood Reporter" also said that it was a "slam dunk" that the actor would go on to win.

Thrilled reactions were heard each of the 10 times "Mad Max: Fury Road" was nominated in a category

In the director's seat
"The Revenant" was directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. His film "Birdman" won four Oscars last year, including for best picture and best director. If the filmmaker wins again this year, he would become the third director - with Joseph Mankiewicz and John Ford - to win the award two years in a row.
