Aaron Sorkin's legal thriller will compete for the top prize of Best Picture/Best Movie for Grownups, facing off with "Minari", "Nomadland", "One Night in Miami...", and "The United States vs. Billie Holiday".
The writer-turned-director is also up for Best Director - alongside Spike Lee for "Da 5 Bloods" - while Mark Rylance has earned a mention in the Best Supporting Actor category, as well as for Best Ensemble, which is awarded to a movie's entire cast.
Among the acting nominees are Frances McDormand ("Nomadland"), Viola Davis ("Ma Rainey's Black Bottom"), Gary Oldman ("Mank"), Tom Hanks ("News of the World"), Glenn Close ("Hillbilly Elegy"), and Clarke Peters ("Da 5 Bloods").
Meanwhile, for the first time in the ceremony's history, the event will also celebrate TV and streaming projects, with "Perry Mason", "Succession", "The Crown", "This Is Us", and "Ted Lasso" all shortlisted for Best Series, and "Watchmen", "Unorthodox", "Small Axe", "Mrs. America", and "The Queen's Gambit" fighting for Best TV Movie/Limited Series.
