The nominees for the 93rd Academy Awards were announced on Monday morning (March 15) by Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

The leading nominee was director David Fincher's Mank, which chronicles the life screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, which scored 10 nods. A wide array of other films each earned six noms: Sound of Metal, Minari, The Trial of the Chicago 7, Judas and the Black Messiah and The Father.

Riz Ahmed was nominated for best actor for his role as a drummer dealing with hearing loss in Sound of Metal, where he'll face off against the late Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Steven Yeun (Minari), Gary Oldman (Mank) and Anthony Hopkins (The Father). The nominations included a historic first for the Oscars when two women were tapped in the best director category, Chloé Zhao for Nomadland and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.

This year's Oscars, which were pushed back by two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will take place both at Union Station in Los Angeles and their usual home, Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, on April 25.
