The 2021 Oscar nominations have been announced.

The list of best picture nominees includes a number of movies original to streaming services, and several that have already made their way to such services despite their recent releases.

Netflix received a number of nominations, while several other nominees have worked their way onto major services like Hulu, HBO Max and Amazon Prime Video.
