Mank , a movie most of Americans have never even heard of, leads the 2021 Oscar nominations
Mank who? The 2021 Oscar nominations were announced on Monday, and Netflix's Mank led with 10 nods , including Best Picture — despite the fact that 78 percent of Americans have never heard of the movie , according to a Morning Consult survey from last month. The other Best Picture nominees were The Father , Judas and the Black Messiah , Minari , Nomadland , Promising Young Woman , Sound of Metal , and The Trial of the Chicago 7 . Netflix led with 35 nominations, The New York Times reports . The 2021 Academy Awards ceremony will take place on April 25 in Los Angeles at Union Station and the Dolby Theatre. It hasn't been announced whether there will be a host (although we hope there won't be ).
If I'm still alive and lucid and not blind three years from now maybe I'll get to see it and add it to a quiz. When you go to a movie theatre to watch a movie, the 15 buck ticket price just gets you a seat - what about the popcorn and drink?
I read an article today about the Oscars where the writer for the Los Angeles Times that covers the movie industry says it's doubtful that Mank will win even one award. I started to watch it one night but it was very slow and didnt grab my interest so I turned it off. That is the advantage of watching these things at home and not paying 15 bucks for a movie theater seat.
