Among the nominations, Mank took the lead with 10, including Best Picture. For the first time, two women were nominated for Best Directing: Chloé Zhao for Nomadland and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.

One very special nomination went to the late Chadwick Boseman, who was nominated in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category for his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. If he wins, the Black Panther actor will be the second posthumous winner in the category. The first was Peter Finch, who won the award for the film Network in 1976. In February, Boseman won a posthumous Golden Globe Award for his role in the Netflix film.

Though the Oscars broke from tradition two years ago when they went without a host, this year’s ceremony is sure to look completely different than any prior event. While the awards were originally supposed to air February 28, they were postponed in June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, the show’s eligibility period was expanded to cover films released through the end of February 2021.

While some presenters and nominees will likely appear in person for the show, many of the festivities will take place virtually. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy plans to conduct the ceremony “from multiple locations” — including the Dolby Theatre.
