Here is the complete list of nominations.

The nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards are in, and Hollywood biopic Mank leads the pack this year with 10 nods. 2020 was a year of change for the Oscars and for cinema as a whole—by which I am of course referring to the Academy combining Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing into a single Best Sound category. The global pandemic also altered the Academy’s usual eligibility rules, meaning that movies released in January and February 2021 are included in this year’s batch of nominees. Meanwhile, another surprising change is that none of this year’s Best Picture nominees are terrible.
