'The Revenant', 'Mad Max' lead Oscars 2016 nominations
The 88th Academy Awards nominations are out. This year Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer semi-biographical adventure drama film 'The Revenant' leads the race with 12 nominations followed closely by George Miller's action thriller 'Mad Max: Fury Road' with 10 nominations.
'The Martian' has bagged seven nominations while 'Carol' and 'Spotlight' got six each.
'The Revenant' has brought DiCaprio close to the Oscars glory which had already brought him the Golden Globe for Best performance by an actor in a motion picture-drama. On the other hand the director Alejandro Iñárritu is back in the game after winning oscar last year for 'The Birdman'.
Oscars 2016 is being slammed for being 'too white'. For the second year in a row, the Academy did not nominate any black actor to any of the 20 slots.Last year's minority-free acting nominations led to the protest hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.
Filmmaker Spike Lee and actress Jada Pinkett Smith posted separate messages Monday saying they would not be attending the February 28 ceremony.
The ceremony will take place on February 28, 2016, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Actor Chris Rock will host the show for the second time, having previously hosted the 77th ceremony held in 2005.
After all here is the complete list of Oscar nominations 2016

Yes it was intense. How could they do this for the second year in a row. Oscars are supposed to honour acting not any race or color. @shannonl5

@Karthikkrazzy1 true. Part of it is the people who pick the nominees- it's made up of the people who have won before. And that's been true since the beginning, back when there weren't any roles for nonwhite people. So there's that. It's also unfortunate to say but the bugger the budget, the fewer roles there are for POC. And the Oscars tend to be attracted to big scale productions

I saw some staggering stat that the highest nomination of women was in 1929. That seems pretty backwards to me...

@nicolejb that was before the Motion Picture Production Code so the roles available to women at that time were pretty good! Like Viola Davis said "you can't win awards for roles that simply aren't there"

Wow, I didn't know that! @shannonl5 her speech was amazing. I'd love to see more roles for women!
