In this strangest of Oscar years, we’ve almost forgotten that David Fincher’s Mank – the biopic of Citizen Kane writer Herman J Mankiewicz – is the nominations leader with 10. Will it emerge at the head of the pack at the end of the night?

Mank is up against the likes of Nomadland, directed by Chloé Zhao and already a big winner with the Venice Golden Lion under its belt, and Judas and the Black Messiah, about the murder of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton (played by Daniel Kaluuya).

Riz Ahmed has emerged as a late breaking contender for best actor as a drummer with hearing loss in Sound of Metal, up against veteran Anthony Hopkins in dementia drama The Father, and the late Chadwick Boseman as a trumpeter in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

The best actress race is even tougher to call, with Carey Mulligan in rape-revenge satire Promising Young Woman going head to head with Viola Davis as blues legend Ma Rainey and two-time best actress winner Frances McDormand for Nomadland.

We’ll keep you updated the moment each award is announced.
