This year's Oscar nominations are out, and the list isn't very diverse. Apparently not many other films exist besides The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian and Carol, with these films dominating nearly every category possible (long side note: someone in charge really wants The Revenant to win at least something, no matter what. But of course, when you chuck Leonardo DiCaprio into the wilderness for a few months and subject him to dirty, gruelling labour, you're definitely going to want to grab a seat in all categories).

 

In other observations, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been snubbed from the more "prestigious" categories of Best Actress, Director and such, but it's sort-of been given a consolation prize...or more like a pat on the back for its audio and video production side. Whoopee. Also, be prepared to be further not shocked because, of course Jennifer Lawrence would be nominated for something too, albeit nothing below Best Actress. Can you feel the yawns coming on?
