Among the fresh faces from Thursday morning’s Oscars nominations are Tom Hardy (“The Revenant”), Rachel McAdams (“Spotlight”) — and A24.

The New York-based distributor, launched in 2012 by Daniel Katz, David Fenkel and John Hodges, made a strong showing with seven Oscars nominations. Three of A24’s films — “Room,” “Ex Machina” and “Amy” — are competing in this year’s Academy Awards, following the indie’s inaugural awards season push.

Room” — the indie based on Emma Donoghue’s best-selling novel about a boy and mother held hostage in a garden shed — landed four nominations, including best picture, best actress (Brie Larson), best director (Lenny Abrahamson) and best adapted screenplay (Emma Donoghue).

Ex Machina,” a British sci-fi film starring Oscar Isaac and Alicia Vikander, earned two Oscar nominations, for best original screenplay and visual effects. “Amy,” the critically acclaimed doc about the late singer Amy Winehouse, scored a nomination in the best documentary category. »
