In this delayed and elongated awards season, the Oscar nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards are finally here. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas announced the full list of nominees in all 23 categories on Monday morning.

Eight films this year were nominated for Best Picture, those being “The Father,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “Mank,” “Minari,” “Nomadland,” “Promising Young Woman,” “Sound of Metal” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” David Fincher’s “Mank” led all films with 10 nominations, including for Best Actor Gary Oldman, Best Supporting Actress Amanda Seyfried and Fincher for Best Director.

This year, the Academy also nominated a record nine nonwhite actors, including stars like Viola Davis, Andra Day, Chadwick Boseman, Riz Ahmed and Steven Yeun. And finally Anthony Hopkins, now 83 years young, has become the oldest ever nominee in the Best Actor category, beating out Richard Farnsworth’s previous record of scoring a nomination at age 79.

Last year had the earliest Oscars ceremony ever, and because of the pandemic, this year’s show will be certainly one of the latest in years, taking place on April 25. This year’s ceremony at both its traditional home at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to allow for COVID-19 social distancing.
