Amazon Prime Video and Warner Bros. 2021 Oscar nominee billboards...

Borat subsequent Moviefilm Oscar nominee billboard
In a year like no other, this year's Academy Awards will be like no other too comprised of nominees from mainly streaming platforms.

Yesterday we shone an outdoor spotlight on 2021's Netflix Oscar nominee billboards and today it's the turn of Amazon Prime Video and Warner Bros. Pictures (who released their film via HBO Max and in some cinemas).

Last year the Borat Subsequent Moviefilm introduced America (and the world) to the Kazakhstanian's daughter (played by the breakout star and Oscar-nominated Maria Bakalova) and almost saved democracy in the process.
