The 2021 Award Season rolls on with the 93rd Annual Academy Awards, which are going down a little later this year following pandemic-related delays.
On Monday morning, husband and wife duo Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra announced the nominees in a two-part ceremony. The telecast itself will go down on April 25, 2021 -- and, at this point, there's no word on whether the show will once again go host-less.
There were a ton of first-time Oscar nominees this morning, pumping some fresh blood into this year's Academy Award race. Those earning their first noms include the late Chadwick Boseman -- the seventh performer ever to receive a posthumous nomination -- Riz Ahmed, Steven Yeun, Leslie Odom Jr., Paul Raci, Lakeith Stanfield, Andra Day, Vanessa Kirby, Maria Bakalova, Amanda Seyfried and Yuh-Jung Youn.
According to the Academy, 70 women received 76 nominations this year -- a new record -- while Emerald Fennell and Chloe Zhao became the sixth and seventh women to earn Directing nods, ever. Zhao's nomination makes her the first woman of color to ever land a nomination in the Director category. So far, Greta Gerwig is the only woman to win the award.
It's the first time more than one woman has been nominated for Directing in the same year. Viola Davis' nom, meanwhile, makes her the first Black woman to be get a second nomination -- ever -- in the Best Actress category and the most nominated Black woman in Oscar history. This is also the second time two Black woman -- Davis and Andra Day -- have been nominated in the category, following Cecily Tyson and Diana Ross way back in 1973.
