Mank is the most-nominated film, with 10 nods.

The 2021 Oscar season has been unlike any other. Due to the pandemic, the ceremony will take place on April 25, two months later than usual. Movie theaters were closed in major markets like Los Angeles and New York for nearly a year. And with release dates moving and typical awards-season events curtailed, it was a strange and unpredictable year.

But the nominations, announced via livestream on Monday morning by Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas, are actually pretty great. David Fincher’s Mank leads the way with 10 nominations, undoubtedly pleasing its studio Netflix. But the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — the professional organization that votes on the Oscars — has spread the love around. Judas and the Black Messiah, Minari, Sound of Metal, The Trial of the Chicago 7, The Father, and Nomadland all received six nominations apiece, including Best Picture berths, and Promising Young Woman nabbed five.

Other notable nominees include Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which earned both Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Maria Bakalova; Collective, a Romanian documentary that landed in both the Best International Feature and Best Documentary category; and the Danish film Another Round, which received nods in both the Best International Feature and Best Director categories.

There are several milestones, too. Notably for the Academy, which has weathered several #OscarsSoWhite situations in recent years, white nominees are the minority in three of the four acting categories; in the Best Actor category, two men of Asian descent are nominated (Riz Ahmed and Steven Yeun). And for the first time ever, two women (Chloé Zhao and Emerald Fennell) are nominated in the Best Director category.
