DiCaprio’s `The Revenant` scoops whopping 12 Oscar nods

Washington D.C., Jan 14 (ANI): 2016 Academy Awards nominations have finally been revealed and with no surprise Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘The Revenant’ has bagged the maximum number of nods.

The 2015 American semi-biographical western film has earned whopping 12 nods including Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, whereas, ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ nabbed 10, while ‘The Martian’ garnered seven and ‘Spotlight’ collected six nominations, the Huffington Post reported.

In a twist of tale, BAFTA nominee ‘Carol’ and ‘Star Wars’ missed out on Best Oscar Picture.

Leonardo DiCaprio, who has never won an Oscar, will be eyeing for one this time against Michael Fassbender for ‘Steve Jobs’, 2015 Best Oscar Actor Eddie Redmayne for ‘The Danish Girl’, Bryan Cranston for ‘Trumbo’ and Matt Damon for ‘The Martian’.

The Academy Awards will be hosted by Chris Rock for the second time after originally hosting the show in 2005.
