'Mad Max: Fury Road' has been nominated for 11 Oscars

Kimberley French/20th Century Fox‘The Revenant.’

Nominations for the 2016 Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s revenge tale “The Revenant” led the pack with 12 nominations, with the hit summer blockbuster “Mad Max: Fury Road” coming in with 11 nominations, including best picture.

Though some thought that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” could break into some of the major categories, its five nominations all came in the technical sections. 

The 88th Academy Awards will take place Sunday, February 28, at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC, hosted by Chris Rock.
