Oscars 2021: Actors and Actresses Who Could Be Nominated

The 2021 Oscars ceremony will take place in a few months and critics, pundits and movie fans are already starting to bet on which films, actors and directors will become the big winners of the evening. The last ceremony was full of great movies and we were pleasantly surprised when Parasite won awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Foreign Film, which gave us hope to see more inclusive and varied ceremonies in the future. Last year has been a big year and left us with high expectations, and while 2020 has been a tough year for cinema and theaters around the world have had to close, there are some films that have given us exactly what we hoped for. , and more. The best part of the year has been in streaming (for obvious reasons) but also on the festivals side where several films have been released and have convinced everyone that they would be the biggest nominees when the Oscars return in 2021.

Some movies, like Mank and Nomadland, already seem to be the favorites to get several Oscar nominations, and with them we also have some actors and actresses in sight. There are still weeks before the official nominations are announced, but we can now bet on actors and actresses like, Vanessa Kirby or Chadwick Boseman. Some have made us cry, laugh, suffer from nervousness, be afraid or have moved us with their performances, and for that they deserve the recognition of the world, in the form of a shining and golden statuette.
