Leonardo DiCaprio, Sylvester Stallone, Jennifer Lawrence were among the nominees for the 88th Academy Awards announced Thursday.

“The Revenant” topped all films with 12 nominations, with “Spotlight,” “The Big Short,” “Room” and “Max Max: Fury Road” not far behind.

In acting categories, many of the same stars who were honored during the Golden Globes on Sunday were nominated, including Brie Larson for “Room,” Matt Damon for “The Martian” and, of course, Leonardo DiCaprio, for “The Revenant.” There has been particular interest in that last potential nominee, given that DiCaprio has never won an Oscar and that movie was so grueling to shoot.

The Oscars ceremony takes place on February 28 and will be broadcast live on ABC at 7 p.m. EST.
