2021 Academy Awards Nominations Announced: 'Mank' Leads With 10 Nods

The nominations for the 93rd annual Academy Awards have announced, revealing which films will contend to take home little golden statuettes for one of the strangest years in cinema history. While the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on movie theaters and the film industry, you know the saying: the show must go on. And due to rules tweaks that allow for more eligibility (we're looking at you, streaming releases), the results look unlike many other Oscar line-ups. But is that for better or worse? We'll let you be the judge.

Mank led the pack with 10 nominations, including nods for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Supporting Actress. Other major contenders include Nomadland, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, The Father, and Sound of Metal, which each walked away with six nominations each. Just behind those films is Promising Young Woman and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom with five nominations. Soul and One Night in Miami each earned three nominations.

Here is the complete list of nominees for the 2021 Academy Awards. The ceremony will air on April 25, 2021.
