Oscar nominations cut their own course this awards season, departing from the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild, and favoring big-budget, Hollywood establishment films and actors for its top categories–best picture, best actor and best director.
Best Picture nominations went to eight films, one less than last year. Making the list were “The Big Short,” “Bridge of Spies,” “Brooklyn,” “Mad Max Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant,” “Room” and “Spotlight.”
