The Oscar Nominations, Snubs, and Predictions in a Nutshell

Leonardo DiCaprio got his Oscar nod for his work in The Revenant. That was just one of 12 nominations for the film. The historical drama, which is also up for best picture and best director, leads Oscar contenders. Mad Max: Fury Road coming in second place with 10 nominations. Tom Hardy, who starred in both films, got a best supporting actor nomination for The Revenant. It’s the first nomination of his career.  Notable snubs this year like Will Smith and Idris Elba, have a lot of fans claiming that there’s a severe lack of diversity among this year’s hopefuls. Only white actors had been nominated in the leading categories. And all the best director candidates are males.
