Politically themed films are among the contenders for the Academy Awards’ top prize, with “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “Mank” and “Judas and the Black Messiah” among the Best Picture nominees.

The nominations for this year’s Oscars ceremony were announced on Monday.

“The Trial of the Chicago 7,” from “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin, garnered several nominations. The film is a dramatization of the prosecution of seven activists who participated in demonstrations that became altercations with police at the 1968 Democratic National Convention and their subsequent prosecution by the Nixon administration.

In “Judas and the Black Messiah,” actor Daniel Kaluuya plays Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was assassinated by police in 1969. In addition to the Best Picture nod, Kaluuya was also nominated in the Actor in a Supporting Role category.

The 93rd annual Academy Awards will air April 25 on ABC.
