Oscar Nominations 2021: The Complete List

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the nominees for one of the strangest Oscar seasons of all time. Delayed and extended because of the COVID-19 pandemic, awards season seems to have always and never been happening in 2020-2021, but thankfully some things never change: The Oscars still have pretty predictable taste.

If you thought that the awards field would be utterly shaken up just because streaming services took the lead over theaters, well, do a few mediocre-to-bad prestige dramas have news for you! Mank leads the pack with 10 nominations in some top categories, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress. With six nominations each, favorites like Minari, Sound of Metal, and Nomadland slightly underperformed while understated underdog The Father and “well, of course they nominated that” choice The Trial of the Chicago 7 overachieved for half a dozen nods each. Behind them were Promising Young Woman (5 nominations), Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom (5), Soul (3) and One Night in Miami (3).

The 93rd Oscars airs on ABC on April 25, 2021.
