2021 Oscar nominations: Full list of Academy Awards nominees

WATCH: Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas and musician-actor Nick Jonas announce the nominees for the 93rd Academy Awards.

It’s been a tough year for both movies and moviegoers, as COVID-19 has disrupted the typical cinematic release schedule. The vast majority of Canadian die-hard movie fans haven’t been inside a theatre for more than 12 months.

The 2021 Oscars, which normally air in February but are now pushed until late April, may suffer as a result. If the audience hasn’t seen the movies, what interest will they have in the awards show? Time will tell.

The 2021 Oscar nominees in all 23 major categories were announced on Monday morning by actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas and her musician-actor husband, Nick Jonas.

The 93rd annual Academy Awards ceremony is set to take place on Sunday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and will be televised live and, apparently, in person.

“In this unique year that has asked so much of so many, the Academy is determined to present an Oscars like none other, while prioritizing the public health and safety of all those who will participate,” a spokesperson for the Academy said. “To create the in-person show our global audience wants to see, while adapting to the requirements of the pandemic, the ceremony will broadcast live from multiple locations.”

The ceremony will be held in both its usual home in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and Los Angeles’ railway hub, Union Station. Ratings for a largely virtual Golden Globes, with acceptance speeches by Zoom, plunged to 6.9 million viewers — a 64 per cent drop from 2020 — last month.

David Fincher’s Mank leads the nominations with 10 nods, and for the first time, two women — Chloé Zhao and Emerald Fennell — were nominated for best director.

Eight films were nominated for best picture. Mank was joined by Fennell’s Promising Young Woman, Zhao’s Nomadland, Judas and the Black Messiah, Sound of Metal, Minari and The Trial of the Chicago 7.

History was made in the best director category. Only five women have ever been nominated in the category before. Zhao is the first woman of Asian descent nominated. The other nominees were Lee Isaac Chung for Minari, David Fincher for Mank and Thomas Vinterberg for Another Round.
