Oscar Nominations are live! Female directors make history – The Complete List is here

Hollywood’s Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences reveals its nominations Monday morning for the 93rd Oscars

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas hosted the announcements.

AMPAS’s David Rubin began the unveiling by revealing most of the event will be held in Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, with some of the event being held in the Dolby Theatre, its normal locale.

The nominations for the Oscars, which will host its ceremony April 25 live on ABC TV, had plenty of surprises, and the most noticeable thing is the diversity.

2021 marked the first year that two women were nominated for Best Director – Nomadland’s Chloé Zhao and Promising Young Woman’s Emerald Fennell – alongside Another Round’s Thomas Vinterberg, Mank’s David Fincher and Minari’s Lee Isaac Chung.

Chloe Zhao, who becomes the first woman of color to achieve a Director nom, also scored in the Adapted Screenplay and Editing categories, giving her a chance to win four total Oscars.

The nominations reflect a year when theaters were mostly closed down by the pandemic and films viewed at home on streaming services, but they also reflect a trend that might well continue: an emphasis on diversity.
