Among the expected nominees are Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Brie Larson, Saoirse Ronan, and Sylvester Stallone.

Surprises include Lenny Abrahamon’s nomination as Best Director for Room (it is also up for Best Picture, and my old college pal Emma Donoghue is nominated for adapting her best-selling novel).
