2016 Oscar Nominations Announced

The Revenant led this morning’s 2016 Oscar nominations with 12 nods. At age 25, Jennifer Lawrence became the youngest to win a fourth nomination. From the Washington Post:

The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning. 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, Leonardo 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.
