"Mank," David Fincher's movie about "Citizen Kane" co-writer Herman Mankiewicz, led Monday's Oscar nominations with 10 nods, including best picture, actor and director. For the first time, two women were nominated for best director: Chloé Zhao, who won at last month's Golden Globes for "Nomadland," and Emerald Fennell for "Promising Young Woman." 

"Nomadland," which won the Golden Globe for best drama picture, was also nominated for the best picture Oscar, and the film's star, Frances McDormand, received a best actress nomination. She's up against Andra Day, who took home the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama for "The United States vs. Billie Holiday."

Chadwick Boseman, who died last summer, was nominated for best actor for his performance in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," which also earned him a Golden Globe.

366 feature films eligible for Oscars

The academy said 366 feature films are eligible for this year's Oscars. Because of the pandemic, the academy allowed films that debuted on streaming services to qualify.

Films could also qualify if they opened in a commercial theater in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles County, Miami, New York City or the San Francisco Bay Area and ran for at least seven days in a row. For last year's Oscars, feature films were only eligible if they opened in a Los Angeles County theater.

Tyler Perry to receive humanitarian award during the Oscars

Filmmaker Tyler Perry will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award during the Oscars ceremony. The academy said Perry's commitment to charitable and social justice causes "has been particularly impactful during the challenges of the past year."

After it was announced in January that the 51-year-old would receive the award, Perry told "CBS This Morning" he was "completely shocked" by the news.

"Where there is a need and I have the ability, I just want to show up," Perry said, adding that receiving the honor was "beyond moving."

Past recipients of the award include Angelina Jolie, Jerry Lewis and Oprah Winfrey.

In Winfrey's recent interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the royal couple said Perry temporarily provided them with a home and security in Southern California last year after they learned they were going to lose their protection in Canada.
