2021 Academy Award Nominees: Complete List

- in World Entertainment
56

This year’s Academy Awards are certainly unprecedented. Since the COVID-19 pandemic halted production on many films and television shows, the selections for this year’s Oscars were much slimmer than usual. On Monday morning, celebrity husband-wife duo Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas announced the Academy Award nominees for all 23 major categories. This year’s ceremony will be held in person at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, unlike last month’s primarily virtual Golden Globes ceremony.

The nominations for this year are certainly historic, however, with David Fincher’s Mank leading with 10 nods. Chloé Zhao and Emerald Fennell have both been nominated for best director, which marks the first time two women have ever been nominated at the same time. Only five women have ever been nominated for best director, and Zhao is the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated. 

Read the complete list of 2021 Oscar nominees below.
