Awards season is here. As celebrities continue to ride high following their Grammy wins Sunday night, quite a few have another reason to celebrate because the Oscar 2021 nominees have just been announced.

Two Black women directors made the nominations list as well: Time‘s Garrett Bradley for Best Documentary Feature and A Love Song for Latasha‘s Sophia Nahli Allison for Best Documentary (Short).
