These nominations were announced in an online ceremony that was hosted by actor Tracee Ellis Ross and comedian Leslie Jordan. This year we have some rather interesting choices with Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car making it into Best Picture, Best Director, and Best International Feature categories. Kristen Stewart, who was snubbed quite a few times this awards season earned her nomination for her brilliant performances in Spencer. The nominations for the Best Adapted Screenplay category are dominated by female writers this year. Marvel once again takes multiple nominations in the Best Visual Effects category. But Eternals was totally snubbed in the category while most fans believe that Tom Holland and Spider-Man: No Way Home should have been in the Best Actor and Best Picture categories too!

The Academy Awards will take place on March 27. Let’s see who wins.
