FULL LIST: 2016 Academy Award Nominees

The nominees for the 88th Annual Academy Awards — celebrating the very best in film — were announced Thursday morning. Guillermo del Toro, Ang Lee and John Krasinski read the nominations live at 8:30 a.m. ET.

The brutal frontier saga “The Revenant” leads the 88th annual Academy Awards with 12 nominations, while the acting categories were again filled entirely by white performers.

The strong showing for “The Revenant,” including a best actor nod for Leonardo DiCaprio, follows its win at the Golden Globes. It sets director Alejandro Inarritu for a possible back-to-back win following his best-picture winning “Birdman.”

George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” followed with 10 nominations, including best picture. Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic “The Martian” landed 7 nominations, including best picture, but no best director nod for Scott.
