The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences have revealed their picks for 2015’s best film work, take a look for yourself.

2015 was certainly another triumphant year in the world of film, particularly when you think about levels of performance coming from a variety of actors and actresses of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds – it’s a shame that this is not reflected well in the Academy‘s nominations list. However, it must be said that we have also seen some outstanding directorial work in titles such as The Revenant (Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu) and Mad Max: Fury Road (George Miller), and we think that that’s something this list does reflect.
