The Oscar nominations 2021 list is out and topped by early awards seasons favorites Nomadland, Minari, Trial of the Chicago 7 and Mank. In a year when many movie theaters were closed, streaming services have stepped in to dominate the nominations. Movie lovers can watch many of the 2021 Oscar nominees streaming via Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and more. 

The 93rd Academy Awards are set for April 25, more than two months later than initially scheduled. The ceremony will still take place in-person from several locations, including the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas announced the nominees Monday morning. The list included the historic inclusion of two women in the Best Director category, Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman and Chloe Zhao for Nomadland.

There were plenty of Oscar nomination snubs, of course. One Night in Miami was shut out of the Best Picture race, while its first-time director Regina King did not make through along with Fennell and Zhao. Golden Globe winner Jodie Foster did not get a nod, nor did child actor Alan Kim for his adorable turn in Minari. And Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods was almost completely blanked.

Here's the full list of 2021 Oscar nominations and where to find them streaming online.
