2021 Oscar Nominations Revealed: The Complete List

    The nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards are finally here. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas announced the nominees virtually in a two-part live presentation earlier today (March 15). Check out the complete list of 2021 Oscar categories below.

    Winners for the 93rd Academy Awards will be announced on Sunday, April 25 during a live gala at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California. Because the event had previously been delayed to late April due to the pandemic, the eligibility window for the 2021 Oscars was extended from January 1, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The Academy has also allowed films that debuted on streaming or PVOD platforms to compete for Oscars, given that they had originally planned for a theatrical release.
