At last the Academy Awards are here. For a brief time–like about a year ago when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pushed the Oscars into April–there was apprehension about whether there would even be enough films in 2020 to qualify as a competitive year. And yet, 2020 (as well as the early months of 2021) has turned out to be a boon for quality, memorable cinema that has been both a cathartic respite and release from the year that was.

The obvious frontrunners are still running in front in the below nominations list. Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland remains the favorite, picking up six nominations, while Less Isaac Chung’s Minari has made great strides throughout the awards season, going from being miscategorized as a “Foreign Language Film” by other awards bodies, to earning deserved nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. The Trial of the Chicago 7 also picked up six Oscars although, notably, not one for Best Director. David Fincher’s Mank, meanwhile, earned eight nominations, and Judas and the Black Messiah pulled in six nominations, including a few hard won nods in Best Picture and a second Best Supporting Actor nomination for LaKeith Stanfield.

Below are the complete nominations for 2021’s Oscars.
