2021 Oscar nominations: See the full list

By Zach Harper

Awards season has been very different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has pushed several big nights back as Hollywood adapts to our "new normal." That includes the 2021 Oscars.

Nominations were announced on March 15, and Mank, which stars Amanda Seyfried, leads with 10 nods. Chadwick Boseman continues his posthumous awards season success with another nomination for Best Actor for his work in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. The film is also up for five awards, including Best Actress for Viola Davis's performance.

The nominations make history in several ways this year. In the acting categories, Riz Ahmed is the first Muslim ever nominated for Best Actor. He's up for the award for his work in Sound of Metal. Several veteran Oscar-winning actors such as Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins are also up for the same prize.

Also for the first time, two women are also nominated for Best Director. Chloé Zhao picked up a nod for her Nomadland, while Emerald Fennell, also known for her acting work on The Crown, is nominated for Promising Young Woman. Chloé has taken nearly every prize for which she's been nominated in director categories throughout awards season. She's also the first woman of Asian descent nominated for a Best Director Oscar.

The Academy Awards will be handed out April 25 in a ceremony that will be broadcast on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
