When are the Oscar nominations

Oscar nominations 2016: as it happened

And now for the real news! Which giant media company gets to slap itself on the back the hardest for gathering the most nominations? And the reddest, rawest backs belong to ... the executives at Fox, which has picked up loads of noms for The Martian, Joy and The Revenant. How delightful!

Nothing for Netflix, nor Amazon Studios. Our lofty predictions about 2015 being the year streaming won over the establishment were way off the mark.

Vanity Fair’s Katey Rich has a message for all the Hardy haters:

OH and Tom Hardy is great in The Revenant so you can all shut up about that one too.

While Indiewire’s Anne Thompson agrees ...

Tom Hardy deserves that Oscar nom not only for 'Revenant' but 'Legend' and 'Mad Max: Fury Road.' Actors respect him.

It’s an ever so white year again! Nothing for Idris Elba, who was a hot favourite for best supporting actor or Will Smith or Michael B Jordan who were potential best actor nominees.

Plus Straight Outta Compton was denied a best picture nomination.

Twitter isn’t happy:

— Jeff Chu (@jeffchu) — PreePree8 (@runwithskizzers) — Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) ? Again? In a year with CREED, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, and BEASTS OF NO NATION? What more did you need?

The breakdown by film is as follows:

The Revenant – 12
Mad Max: Fury Road – 10
The Martian – 7
Carol – 6
Spotlight – 6
Bridge of Spies – 6
The Big Short – 5
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – 5
Room – 4
The Danish Girl – 4
Brooklyn – 3
The Hateful Eight – 3
Sicario – 3

The snubs continue...

As well as missing out on a best picture nomination, the highly touted Carol also missed out on a best director nomination for Todd Haynes.

Aaron Sorkin’s very, very, very wordy screenplay for Steve Jobs was also overlooked, as was Quentin Tarantino’s even wordier script for The Hateful Eight.
