The official nominees for this year’s 93rd edition of the Oscars have been released. 

Moving this year’s awards back a full two months, the Oscars 2021 will be taking place on Sunday, April 25. The best films from the past year will be honoured in a ceremony taking place in its usual home of the Dolby Theatre in LA. Similar to the two previous years of the Academy Awards, there has been no announcement of a host for this year’s event.

'Wolfwalkers' was the sole Irish nomination for this year, with Cartoon Saloon's animation receiving a nod in the animated feature film category.

This year, women ruled the Oscars 2021 nominations. A record-breaking seventy women received a total 76 nominations. Chloé Zhao of 'Nomadland' is the first woman to receive four nominations in a single year, while Emerald Fennell of 'Promising Young Woman' becomes the third woman with three nominations in a single year.

Actor-producer Priyanka Chopra Jonas (‘The White Tiger’) and her singer-turned-actor husband Nick Jonas made the nominees announcement this afternoon from London.

Here’s a rundown of each nomination in each category.
