Late actor Chadwick Boseman, who passed away last summer, received a nomination for best actor for his performance in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," which also earned him a Golden Globe.

Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, the ceremony has been postponed until 25 April, and the format has not yet been announced.

It was originally to be held on 28 February, but the entry date for nominations was extended to 15 January.

The Oscar nominations come in the week following the announcement of the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) nominees, which despite not marrying with expectations, did expand from previous years to include a much more diverse group of actors and films.
