The 2021 nominees were announced today (February 3), with the late star's performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom earning him recognition as part of the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category.

This year's most-nominated movie is Netflix's Mank with six nods, followed by fellow Netflix movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 with five, and The Father, Nomadland and Promising Young Woman with four apiece.
