2021 Oscar Nominations Are The Most Diverse In Its History

Sacha Baron-Cohen, Carey Mulligan, Olivia Colman, Daniel Kaluuya and Sir Anthony Hopkins are among the British stars nominated for this year’s Oscars.

Vanessa Kirby, Gary Oldman and Riz Ahmed are among the other UK nominees.

Most Diverse

And it is the most distinctive and diverse Oscars, it’s because with nine of the 20 nominees being from non-white backgrounds.

And two women have been nominated for the award of best director – for the first time more than one woman has been shortlisted in the 93-year-old awards ceremony.

Chloe Zhao has been nominated for directing Nomadland, while Britain’s Emerald Fennell is recognised for Promising Young Woman.

Some of the other nominees include Frances McDormand, Glenn Close, Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman.

Mank, a black-and-white drama that plays Oldman as Citizen Kane writer Herman Mankiewicz, leads the entire field with 10 nominations.

This year’s winners will be announced at a delayed event on April 25.
