Oscars 2021 nominees: See who could win big at the Academy Awards

The winners of the 93rd annual Academy Awards will be revealed Sunday (ABC at 8 EDT/5 PDT) after a pandemic-plagued past year and amid the weirdest awards season ever.

The event is being held primarily at Los Angeles’ historic Union Station. There will be a red carpet and celebrities, but with COVID-19 protocols in place, it certainly won’t be the Oscars norm. Only nominees, their guests and presenters will be in attendance – having gone through multiple rounds of testing and a required quarantine period.

Still, there will be glitz, glam and a new winner of the prized best picture title. 

David Fincher’s “Citizen Kane” origin tale “Mank” leads the field with 10 nominations, while Shaka King’s historical thriller “Judas and the Black Messiah,” Florian Zeller’s dementia tale “The Father,” Aaron Sorkin’s courtroom drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” Lee Isaac Chung’s Korean American Dream story “Minari,” Chloé Zhao’s road-trip drama “Nomadland” and Darius Marder’s deaf-culture study “Sound of Metal” scored six each.
