Leo DiCaprio has 'no nerves' over Oscar nomination

Carol movie

For those who follow Hollywood flicks, Leonardo is the hero of some of the most remarkable movies and has essayed challenging characters.

20th Century Fox (FOXA.O) led the studios with a total of 30 nominations, including for "The Revenant", "The Martian" and "Joy", as well as its Fox Searchlight independent film arm's "Brooklyn" and "Youth".

Of the Academy's effort to increase diversity, Isaacs said "We have got to speed it up".

Ryan Coogler's acclaimed Rocky sequel "Creed", starring Michael B. Jordan, was also often cited as one of the year's best, but it drew only a nomination for Sylvester Stallone reprising his role as Rocky Balboa.

In a tumultuous and unpredictable awards season, "The Revenant" - which also landed nominations for best-actor favorite Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy and Inarritu's long-take maverick cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki - has emerged as a heavyweight, taking top honors at the Golden Globes and scoring a $38 million debut.

The nomination for Pixar (which also landed a best screenplay nod for "Inside Out") restores its nearly unblemished record of Oscar nominations, broken only by 2011's "Cars 2" and 2013's "Monsters University". An immensely talented performer with a strong understanding of cinematic art and dab eye for a great project; he's a member of that highly exclusive club (alongside Mads Mikkelsen and Oscar Isaac) of actors so consistent that I'll get excited about their upcoming projects on promise alone.

Seeing the ones he is competing with, it looks like he might finally take an Oscar home this year. The award show will be held on Sunday, February 28th at the Dolby theatre at Highland Centre in Hollywood.

In what is present-day South Dakota (but filmed in Canada and Argentina), the company of men traps beavers for their prized pelts while enduring the ravages of winter and frequent raids by Native Americans. In this case, Spotlight is the only outlier, a movie about the precious details that sneak by the people responsible for catching them. This year's best director list includes Miller ("Mad Max: Fury Road"), Inarritu ("The Revenant"), Lenny Abrahamson ("Room"), Tom McCarthy ("Spotlight') and Adam McKay, for "The Big Short".

The 88th Academy Award nominations, announced Thursday morning, revealed the usual muddle-headedness, liberal good intentions and severe limitations of the social grouping that decides these things.

And yet, when it comes down to it, there's no avoiding a rather uncomfortable truth; he wasn't the best thing about the movie.

"We gave it our all on this film and this appreciation from the Academy means a lot to me and my colleagues who made it possible", said Inarritu in a statement.

Trans Positive But it wasn't all bad news on the diversity front.

Just as she was shut out at the Golden Globes, Charlize Theron was left out in the desert when it came to both female acting categories, which is a mild surprise. I think of Keaton as a supporting role in the film, though he was powerful enough to carry a best actor nod.

Along the way, Glass is assisted and befriended by a lone Pawnee, Hikuc (Arthur Redcloud). Majorities also consider Congress a corrupt institution, whose members are "out of touch with average Americans" and represent "special interests" (i.e., the corporate elite).

The Revenant is in cinemas now.

Where are the genuinely left-wing or socialist-minded films, which would speak to the opinions and feelings of a substantial section of the population?
