Oscars 2021: Check out all of this year’s nominations

Who will you be rooting for ahead of the biggest night in movies?

The nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards were revealed by Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas this afternoon. That’s right, the one we have all been waiting for, the biggest awards night in showbiz is just around the corner. 

The film industry was hit hard and felt the cold hand of covid most despondently in 2020, which had a profound effect on the entertainment business and its employees. But, despite all of this the award shows have gone ahead so far with the content released last year.

The show must go on as they say!

Some award ceremonies have already broadcast, albeit not in the format we are used to. The Golden Globes were hosted live from New York and Los Angeles with some celebrities making an in-person appearance on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton hotel, however the majority of nominees stayed at a safe distance and streamed in from their homes or hotel rooms – glitches and all. 

The vast majority of us may not be able to watch Oscar-contending movies in cinemas, and really dive into the entire awards season experience, but we will be able to watch the Oscars as they happen. That being said, there is hope on the horizon for audiences here in the UK as the government plans to re-open entertainment sites in May. 

The Oscars are covered in the UK pre-ceremony by the team at Sky, and the live-show is aired after the red carpet coverage – available to watch via the Sky Cinema Awards channel. 

Let’s have a look at the Oscar nominations for this year:
