2021 Oscar nominations: who got nominated & who got snubbed?

The 93rd Oscars will happen on April 25th, more than two months delayed from their original date, which was supposed to be in February. My guess is that the average person probably thinks the Oscars already happened anyway, so I’m curious what the vibe will be once the Oscars go on so late in the “season.” The Oscar nominations came out this morning, and let’s get to it! Here are all of the big nominations.

Hear My Voice, The Trial of the Chicago 7

I really, really want to see The Father, but I have not gotten a chance yet. Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman both look like they’re doing major work though. I loved The Trial of the Chicago 7 AND The Sound of Metal. Those were my two favorite movies from the past year, and I’m really glad that they were both recognized for Best Picture, and that Riz Ahmed and Sacha Baron Cohen got nominated! Interesting to see the late surge for Minari, and I hope more people see that movie! It’s also really cool to see two women in the Best Director category. I appreciated Promising Young Woman and Carey’s performance in particular, but that film is… A LOT. It f–ked me up. But I’m super-proud of Emerald Fennell for all of the praise she’s getting. Last thing: Glenn Close!! HILLBILLY ELEGY! CAN WE NOT.
