At long last the 2021 Oscar nominations are here. It’s been a strange, delayed awards season thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw the Academy delaying the show by months and extending the eligibility cutoff for films, but Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas did the honors of announcing the nominees bright and early Monday morning. History was made when Chlo√© Zhao of¬†Nomadland¬†and Emerald Fennell of¬†Promising Young Woman¬†became the first two women ever nominated for Best Director at the same time. David Fincher’s old Hollywood saga¬†Mank¬†was the most nominated film with 10 categories to its name, once again proving that there is nothing that the Academy loves more than movies about movies. However, there were surprises elsewhere, including strong shows from critically beloved independent films¬†Sound of Metal¬†and¬†Minari. You can see the full list of nominees below to prepare for the April 25 socially distant ceremony.
