2016 Oscar Nominations Are In With Strong Nod to ‘The Revenant’

the-oscars

The 2016 Oscar nominations are in and it could be Leo’s year!

Just as the Golden Globes have come to a close, the buzz for the Oscars is beginning to generate with the 2016 nominees being released. While the Globes and Oscars are not directly correlated, there are many areas where the two award shows do meet.

With “The Revenant” winning big this year already, I’m sure that we can expect much of the same at the Academy Awards. I wouldn’t expect “The Martian” to make waves at the Oscars like it did at the Golden Globes due to it not being able to play it safe in the comedy genre. But I agree with the masses that this year will be the year of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Performance by an actress in a leading role Brie Larson in “Room” (While I’m still a little unsure about whether they’ll drench Jennifer Lawrence with more praise, I’m fairly sure there will be an outrage if Brie Larson doesn’t take this one home.
