‘Revenant’ leads Oscar nominations

Who got Oscar nominations? "The Revenant," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, led all films with 12 nods, including one for <strong>best picture</strong>. It will compete against "The Big Short," "Bridge of Spies," "Brooklyn," "Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Martian," "Room" and "Spotlight."

“The Revenant” roared like a bear Thursday morning, topping all films with 12 nominations for the 88th Academy Awards.

The film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a vengeful frontiersman left for dead after a bear attack, earned nominations for best picture, best director (Alejandro González Iñárritu), best actor (DiCaprio) and — in a mild surprise — best supporting actor (Tom Hardy).

Hardy’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” also exercised some gasoline-fueled muscle. The postapocalyptic tale was second with 10 nominations, including picks for picture, director George Miller and editing.

“Spotlight,” which has dominated critics’ lists, received nominations for best picture, best director (Tom McCarthy), best supporting actor (Mark Ruffalo), best supporting actress (Rachel McAdams) and editing
