Oscar Nominations & Predictions 2021: Entire List

The Oscar nominations 2021 were announced on Monday. And of course, there are always snubs and surprises, because awards are meant to be subjective. David Fincher’s ‘Mank’ leads the nominations with 10 nods.

There were lots of History-Making nominees this year, with Oscars nominating a record number of actors of color, which is a good sign. Steven Yeun became the first Asian American actor and Riz Ahmed the first Muslim actor nominated in a “Best Actor” category. Chloé Zhao became the first woman of color nominated for “Best Director” and Viola Davis is now the most nominated Black actress in Oscars history. The nominees were announced by Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas.

What is the date of Oscars 2021?

The Oscars 2021 will take place on Sunday, April 25. The 93rd Academy Awards was supposed to take place in February this year but has been postponed due to Covid-19.

Where will Oscars 2021 be held?

As usual, The annual Academy Awards ceremony which is also known as the Oscars will be held at Dolby Theatre, Los Angeles. Since 2002, the award ceremony has been held in Los Angeles in Hollywood.

Here’s a list of the complete Oscar nominations and winner predictions 2021:

8. The Trial of the Chicago 7 The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) – IMDb

Best Director

1. Chloé Zhao, Nomadland

2. David Fincher, Mank

3. Emerald Fennell, Promising Young Woman

4. Lee Isaac Chung, Minari

5. Thomas Vinterberg, Another Round

Our Pick: Even though Nomadland is not my best picture pick, Chloé Zhao sure is my pick for the best director of the year. It’s filmmaking at its finest. She is already the clear front runner in awards season so far and is the strongest contender for Oscars best director this year.

Best Actor

1. Anthony Hopkins, The Father

2. Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

3. Gary Oldman, Mank

4. Riz Ahmed, Sound of Metal

5. Steven Yeun, Minari

Our Pick: Best Actor category is tough this year. It’s a 3-way tie between Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins, and Riz Ahmed in my book. But if I had to pick one, I would go with Riz Ahmed for his brilliant portrayal of a metal drummer going through hearing loss. *I might be slightly biased here*

Best Actress

1. Andra Day, The United States vs. Billie Holiday

2. Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman

3. Frances McDormand, Nomadland

4. Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman

5. Viola Davis, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

Our Pick: It sure was a bit controversial, especially with the tone and style of the film. But I think Carey Mulligan deserves to score her first Oscar win with this one. She gave the best performance of the year without any doubt.

Best Supporting Actor

1. Daniel Kaluuya, Judas and the Black Messiah

2. LaKeith Stanfield, Judas and the Black Messiah

3. Leslie Odom Jr., One Night in Miami…

4. Paul Raci, Sound of Metal

5. Sacha Baron Cohen, The Trial of the Chicago 7

Our Pick: Daniel Kaluuya and I can’t stress this enough, should win the best actor in a supporting role award. He embodied the spirit of Fred Hampton perfectly. There were times watching him gave me literal chills.

Daniel Kaluuya

Best Supporting Actress

1. Amanda Seyfried, Mank

2. Glenn Close, Hillbilly Elegy

3. Maria Bakalova, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

4. Olivia Colman, The Father

5. Yuh-jung Youn, Minari

Our Pick: Maria Bakalova is my pick for the best actress in a supporting role, but I wouldn’t be mad about Youn Yuh-Jung winning it either. These two were clear best in my opinion.
