After a delayed start, the Oscar nominations are here – and the film that is leading the way is a bit of a surprise. Netflix’s Mank, which tells the story of Citizen Kane and was directed by David Fincher, scored 10 nominations.

Mank was recognized in Best Picture, Best Director, Actor In A Leading Role (Gary Oldman), Actress In A Supporting Role (Amanda Seyfried), Sound, Cinematography, Production Design, Costume Design, Score, and Makeup And Hairstyling. (Interestingly, it failed to get nominated for its screenplay.) Other films with multiple nominations include Nomadland, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Judas and the Black Messiah.

The Academy Awards, which in recent years have generated controversy for their lack of diversity and inspired the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, included many history-making nominations this year. For the first time in its 93-year history, more than one woman has been nominated for Best Director (Nomadland’s Chloé Zhao and Promising Young Woman’s Emerald Fennell). In the Best Actor category, Steven Yeun (Minari) is the first Asian-American actor to be nominated, and Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal) is the first Muslim to be nominated. Gor only the second time in the Academy’s history, two Black women will compete in the Best Actress category: Andra Day for The United States vs. Billie Holliday, and Viola Davis for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Anthony Hopkins just became the oldest Best Actor nominee at 83 for The Father.

The 2021 Oscars will take place on April 25.
