Quiz! How well do you know Oscars record-breakers?

The nominations for the 2021 Oscars were announced this week and — for once — the Academy Awards seemed to breaking new ground, with a number of history-making nominations in the mix.

Nine of the 20 acting nominations have gone to non-white performers. This is the highest proportion of non-white acting nominations in the 93-year history of the Academy Awards.

It's also the first time more than one woman has been nominated for directing in the same year.

Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) and Chloe Zhao (Nomadland) are only the sixth and seventh women in the history of the Academy Awards to get a best director nomination.

Chloe Zhao is the first non-white woman to be nominated for best director, while Emerald Fennell is the first woman to be nominated for her feature film directing debut.
