The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards have been announced in Los Angeles and Fox/New Regency’s survival epic The Revenant has clawed its way to the top with 12 nods.
Open Road’s Spotlight, Carol from The Weinstein Company and DreamWorks’ Bridge Of Spies (Buena Vista distributed in North America and Fox the rest of the world) earned six apiece, while Paramount/Regency Enterprises’ The Big Short and Disney/Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens collected five each.

After many months of speculation, the full list of this year's Oscar nominees have been announced - just minutes after the reveal of the death of beloved thespian Alan Rickman.
"The Revenant" led the field with twelve nominations followed by "Mad Max: Fury Road" with ten and "The Martian" with seven. Next were "Spotlight" and "Carol" with six nominations; "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "The Big Short" and "Bridge Of Spies" got five; "Room" and "The Danish Girl" nabbed four; "Sicario," "Brooklyn" and "The Hateful Eight" scored three; and "Steve Jobs" and "Ex Machina" nabbed two.
Surprises? "Creed" and "Joy" scored only one nomination each for Stallone's and Lawrence's performances respectively. No Ridley Scott for director, Quentin Tarantino or Aaron Sorkin for screenplay, Charlize Theron for best actress, "Carol" for best picture, "See You Again" for best song, and of course - the distinct lack of racial diversity. Here's the list in full. »
