Oscars 2021: Here are the nominees for this year’s Academy Awards

Oscars
ABC
 

Well, they came a few months late, and are mostly comprised of the same eight titles we all pretty much agreed upon would be the awards-season favorites this year, but the nominees for the 2021 Oscars are finally here. They’re led by David Fincher’s Mank, with 10 nominations, though it will very likely not win a single one (it’s Nomadland’s world, and we’re all just living in it). The list is more notable for a few left turns (Thomas Vinterberg being nominated for Director instead of Aaron Sorkin or another Netflix director, Maria Balakova getting a Supporting Actress nod), and, of course, everything left out — if you released your movie before October 2020, well, too bad — but it is, overall, a decent list of nominees.

Stay tuned for our annual Oscar Gambling column closer to the date of the ceremony, but, for now, here are your nominees:
