The Oscars Major Category Nominations 2016 List

Here are the nominations from the major, coveted categories at the 88th Academy Awards 2016


For some years now, more movies have been allowed to compete for the BEST PICTURE trophy, rather than an exclusive, limited five. The Revenant stands out as a dark horse in this category. It is a good movie with three stand out scenes, not a classic, but worse movies have won in this category. Remember, The Shawshank Redemption didn't win BEST PICTURE, nor did Raging Bull.
