Nomadland, Judas and the Black Messiah, and Minari all received multiple Oscar nominations Monday, March 15th. The 93rd Academy Awards will air live on ABC on Sunday, April 25th.


Those three films are up for Best Picture and will compete against The Father, Mank, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, and The Trial of the Chicago 7. Minari and Nomadland directors Lee Isaac Chung and Chloé Zhao, respectively, are also up for Best Director, as are Thomas Vinterberg for Another Round, David Fincher for Mank, and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.


In the Best Actor Category, Minari star Steven Yeun will compete against Gary Oldman for Mank, Anthony Hopkins for The Father, Riz Ahmed for Sound of Metal, and Chadwick Boseman, who earned a posthumous nod for his final film, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

In the supporting performance categories, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’s breakout star Maria Bakalova earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress, as did Glenn Close for Hillbilly Elegy, Olivia Colman for The Father, Amanda Seyfried for Mank, and Yuh-Jung Youn for Minari. Both Judas and the Black Messiah stars, Daniel Kaluuya and LaKeith Stanfield, are up for Best Supporting Actor, as are Sacha Baron Cohen for The Trial of the Chicago 7, Leslie Odom Jr. for One Night in Miami, and Paul Raci for Sound of Metal.


For Best Original Screenplay, Judas and the Black Messiah will compete against Minari, Promising Young Woman, Sound of Metal, and The Trial of the Chicago 7. Best Adapted Screenplay boasts Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, The Father, Nomadland, One Night in Miami, and The White Tiger.


And in the Oscars’ music categories, Diane Warren will compete once more for an Academy Award with “Lo Sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead, which earned a nod for Best Original Song. The category also boasts H.E.R.’s “Fight for You” from Judas and the Black Messiah, Daniel Pemberton and Celeste Waite’s “Hear My Voice” from The Trial of the Chicago 7, and Savan Kotecha, Fat Max Gsus, and Rickard Göransson’s “Husavik” from the Will Ferrell comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.


And for Best Original Score, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are nominated once again, both for their work on Mank as well as their work with Jon Batiste on Soul. Other nominees include James Newton Howard for News of the World, Emile Mosseri for Minari, and Terence Blanchard for Da 5 Bloods.
