Oscars 2021 Nominations: Full List

We're just hours away from the 2021 Academy Awards and all of your nominees are still hopeful for a victory. You can watch the awards live on ABC or on ABC's app using your TV login information. There is also streaming options through Hulu with Live TV, Fubo TV, AT&T TV, and YouTube TV. While the COVID-19 pandemic derailed the film industry in 2020, leaving many films on the shelves until movie theaters could reopen, the films in contention are still strong choices. The Golden Globes still managed to set the tone for awards season this year, despite it being an awkward mix of coastal production and virtual acceptance speeches.

Nomadland is likely the favorite to walk away with the top awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Chloe Zhao. There is also a lot of praise for Anthony Hopkins in The Father, though he is unlikely to best Chadwick Boseman's final performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.

There shouldn't be many surprises at the Oscars in 2021, but the show still has plenty of time to prepare and adjust. Will it be able to capture the magic of past years? It will be the first Academy Awards to deal directly with the pandemic guidelines, so keep an eye out. Here is a complete list of nominations for this year's Oscars airing on April 25 on ABC.
