Movies up for Academy Awards

Oscar nominations 2016: Complete list of nominees; ‘The Revenant’ leads with 12

In acting categories, many of the same stars who were honored during the Golden Globes on Sunday were nominated, including Brie Larson for “Room, ” Matt Damon for “The Martian” and, of course, DiCaprio for “The Revenant.” There has been particular interest in that last potential nominee, given that DiCaprio has never won an Oscar and that movie was so grueling to shoot.

The Oscars ceremony will take place on Feb. 28 and will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. on ABC.

“The Revenant” – 12
“Mad Max: Fury Road” – 10

“Carol” – 6
“The Big Short” – 5
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” – 5

The list of nominations for the 88th Academy Awards

Best picture
“Spotlight”
“The Big Short”
“Bridge of Spies”
“Brooklyn”
“Mad Max: Fury Road”
“The Martian”
“The Revenant”
“Room”
Immediate reaction: The Academy can nominate up to 10 contenders, which leaves space for some less typical entries. This year, it went with eight options, which means we have the movies we knew we’d see — “The Revenant, ” “The Martian, ” “Spotlight” — but also some less weighty entries, such as “The Big Short” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The one glaring omission (sorry, “Star Wars” fans, it’s not “The Force Awakens”) is “Carol, ” which seemed custom-made for awards glory.

Actor in a leading role
Bryan Cranston, “Trumbo”
Matt Damon, “The Martian”
Leonardo DiCaprio, “The Revenant”
Michael Fassbender, “Steve Jobs”
Eddie Redmayne, “The Danish Girl”
The only name on this list that really matters is Leonardo DiCaprio. Barring some unthinkable fraud (What if he secretly shot the whole movie on a soundstage? Maybe that bison liver was a strawberry jam-covered mushroom?), he has this category locked down.

Actress in a leading role
Cate Blanchett, “Carol”
Brie Larson, “Room”
Jennifer Lawrence, “Joy”
Charlotte Rampling, “45 Years”
Saoirse Ronan, “Brooklyn”
Immediate reaction: This shakes out a lot like we would have guessed. Golden Globe winner Larson, arguably the front-runner, is on the list, alongside other sure bets, such as Blanchett and Lawrence. The one mild surprise is Rampling, who was phenomenal in “45 Years” but didn’t get a Golden Globe nomination.
