Oscars 2021 Nominations See Host Of British Stars Receive Nods – Here's A Reminder Of The Full List

Daniel Kaluuya, Olivia Colman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Riz Ahmed are among the many British nominees in 2021.

A number of British stars are leading the way ahead of this year’s Oscars, which are set to take place on Sunday 25 April.

Daniel Kaluuya, Sacha Baron Cohen, Olivia Colman and Riz Ahmed are among the UK actors who have been nominated for an Academy Award at the upcoming ceremony.

In the Best Supporting Actor category, Daniel has scored a  nomination for his performance as Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Judas And The Black Messiah.

Things are definitely looking in his favour, as he’s already scooped a Golden Globe, Bafta and SAG Awards for his performance in the film.

Daniel is nominated alongside fellow Brit Sacha Baron Cohen, for his turn as social activist Abbie Hoffman in The Trial Of The Chicago 7.

Meanwhile, Olivia Colman received a nod in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in The Father, and Carey Mulligan is in the race for Best Actress after winning praise for her performance in Promising Young Woman.

Best Actor is an especially Brits-heavy category, with Sound Of Metal star Riz Ahmed nominated alongside Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins, who have received nods for Mank and The Father.

Emerald Fennell has also been nominated for helming Promising Young Woman in the Best Director category. 

Last year’s male-dominated Best Director category was widely criticised, and 2021 has seen Emerald nominated alongside Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, following her wins at both the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Award. 

Chloé’s nomination has made Oscars history, as she is the first woman of colour to ever be honoured in the category. 

It is also the first time that more than one woman has been nominated for Best Director in a single year.

The Oscars has significantly expanded its voting body over the past year, inviting more than 800 new members, after it once again faced criticism for the lack of diversity in its nominations for the 2020 ceremony.

Other nods include a posthumous nomination in the Best Actor category for Chadwick Boseman and his role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. 

The Black Panther actor died aged 43 last August from colon cancer.
