Here Are The 2016 Oscar Nominees!

Is it finally Leo's year?

Leonardo DiCaprio could be on course for Oscars success at last as he leads the way in the best actor category for the 88th Academy Awards.

The American movie star has been nominated for the accolade four times previously, but 2016 looks set to be his year with movie The Revenant following his Golden Globes win on Sunday. The triumph won't be an easy one though as he faces stiff competition from Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl, Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs, Trumbo's Bryan Cranston, and Matt Damon in The Martian.

The Revenant will be battling it out for the best picture award, while Alejandro González Iñárritu is in the running for best director. Supporting actor Tom Hardy has also scooped a nod. It received mentions in the cinematography, costume design, production design, make-up and hair styling, film editing, sound editing, sound mixing, and visual effects categories.

The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, Room, and Spotlight are the other best picture nominations.

Directors Adam McKay (The Big Short), George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road), Lenny Abrahamson (Room), and Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) are Iñárritu's competition for the prize.

The Golden Globes generally act as a precursor to the Academy Awards results, so hopes are high that best actress winner Brie Larson (Room) will scoop the golden statue at the February 28 ceremony. She's up against Cate Blanchett for Carol, Brooklyn's Saoirse Ronan, Jennifer Lawrence for Joy, and Charlotte Rumpling in 45 Years.

In a surprise move, Carol co-lead Rooney Mara landed a supporting role nod, as opposed to lead actress. Rachel McAdams in Spotlight, Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl, Kate Winslet for Steve Jobs, and Jennifer Jason Leigh for The Hateful Eight make up the category.

The male equivalent is between Christian Bale for The Big Short, Tom Hardy in The Revenant, Mark Ruffalo for Spotlight, Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies, and Sylvester Stallone for Creed.

Mad Mad: Fury Road may have missed out at the Golden Globes, but the adventure sci-fi flick picked up a total of 10 nominations at the Oscars.
