It's been a weird year for awards shows with awkward virtual broadcasts and strange red carpets brought to us by Zoom and Instagram. But the Academy Awards are the cream of the crop, the crème de la crème, the most coveted award of the season, dripping with prestige.

This year, the Oscars are taking place in April, meaning they've had plenty of time to figure out this whole virtual awards show thing. The show will still take place in the iconic Dolby Theater, though there will be no in-person audience, and some parts will be broadcast from other locations. They'll also be closing out what will hopefully be the first and only virtual awards season. Thank god.

The 93rd Academy Awards will air Sunday, April 25, 2021 and crown the best films of the year as winners for their excellence and masterful work. And since the awards are over a month away there's still plenty of time for you to review this year's greatest, most artfully perfected films, like Minari and Mank.

Check out this year's full list of nominations, below.
