The Oscar Awards 2016, better known as the 88th Academy Awards, will be held on Sunday, February 28, 2016,  at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, Hollywood in California, USA. This year’s Oscar Awards nominees are in 24 categories and include some of the best names who have won an Oscar before, like Cate Blanchett, and some who have been nominated five times but never got hold of the trophy – like Leonardo DiCaprio. While Leo has received a Best Actor in a Leading Role nomination for The Revenant and is likely to win, Cate has got another Best Actress in a Leading Role nomination, this time for period drama Carol. (ALSO READ: BAFTA Awards 2016 winners list: Leonardo DiCaprio is Best Actor, The Revenant is Best Film)
