Today in Hollywood, it was Christmas morning. Well, if there was a day where your parents gave you a list of all the possible presents you might receive on Christmas morning, it would be more like that, but since the metaphor is getting labored let’s focus on one word: Oscars. The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announced this morning with all the usual revelry and anticipation followed by hand-wringing over snubs and lack of diversity represented. But for better or worse, revealed below, are the cold hard facts and the contestants for this year’s Oscars.

The movie with the most Oscar nominations is the Alejandro G. Iñárritu survival drama The Revenant. The Revenant has 12 nominations in all including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor for Tom Hardy, and a Best Actor nomination for Leonardo DiCaprio, who’s widely considered to be the frontrunner in this category.

Mad Max: Fury Road got the second most nominations with nine, and while it did receive a plethora a technical nominations including Film Editing, Production Design, Visual Effects, Costume Design, Make-Up, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing, it also got Best Picture and Best Director nods for George Miller.

Also nominated for Best Picture, and seven nominations in all, is The Martian. Like Max it was also nominated for Production Design, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing, but it also received nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay by Drew Goddard, and Best Actor Matt Damon. Director Ridley Scott, however, was snubbed.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens managed to squeak out five nominations including Film Editing, Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing, while John Williams picked up a nomination for Best Original Score, the first time Williams has gotten a nod for a Star Wars score since Return of the Jedi. It’s Williams 50th Oscar nomination overall, and he’ won five times previously including once for the score for the original Star Wars in 1977.

The Hateful Eight received only three nominations, one for Jennifer Jason Leigh for Best Supporting Actress, one for Ennio Morricone for Best Score, and one for Best Cinematography and the 70 mm photography by Robert Richardson.

Anomalisa, Boy And The World, Inside Out, Shaun The Sheep Movie, and When Marnie Was There, were all nominated for Best Animated Feature, while Inside Out got an additional nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The Big Short, Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Room, and Spotlight round out the other Best Picture nominees.
