The nominations of the 93rd annual Academy Awards were announced on Monday morning by Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas.
With 'Mank,' which is a black-and-white drama from Netflix about the making of 'Citizen Kane,' leading the pack with 10 nominations, these six films received six nominations: 'The Father,' 'Judas and the Black Messiah,' 'Minari,' 'Nomadland,' 'Sound of Metal' and 'The Trial of the Chicago 7.'
Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and worldwide lockdowns, several major films were forced to skip theatrical releases and opt for online streaming. This has helped OTT giant Netflix dominate the nominations in 2021. Meanwhile, Amazon Prime Videos has scored 12 nominations and Apple TV+ and Disney+ have also entered the race to Oscars.
