The nominees for the 94th Academy Awards are here!

Those nominated will battle it out next month on Sunday 27 March, when a star-studded audience assembles once again at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, LA for the glittering awards ceremony. The A-list event will return with a host for the first time in three years, although details on who has been selected for the honour remain under wraps for now.

Last year saw the likes of Anthony Hopkins and Frances McDormand take home top acting honours, while Nomadland's Chloé Zhao also made history as the first woman of colour to win best director. So who is on the coveted list this year? See the full list of nominees below...
