The Revenant Alejandro Inarritu Leonardo DiCaprio

The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite is trending again this year after the nominations for the 88th Academy Award were announced Thursday morning in Beverly Hills. At least host Chris Rock will be representing live on Sunday, February 28 on ABC. Take a look at the list which at least includes two Hispanics.

Star of Michael Bay’s 13 Hours John Krasinski and Mexican film director Guillermo del Toro announced the nominations along with Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs. As expected, The Revenant took top honors with a total of 12 nominations while Mad Max: Fury Road received 10 and The Martian is at seven. Star Wars: The Force Awakens received five nominations, mostly in the technical fields along with John Williams for Best Score.

The 88th Academy Award nominations were not completely without diversity. Mexican natives Alejandro G. Iñarritu and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki received noms for their work behind the camera.

Straight Outta Compton was shut out except for one nomination for Best Original Screenplay, but it deserved a lot more with director F. Gary Gray deserving recognition for a movie that surprised many including critics in 2015.
