Oscar awards 2021: From Nomadland to Mank, check out the complete list of winners here
The 93rd Academy Awards, which were held at the Union Station in Los Angeles and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on April 25 (April 26 IST), saw record-breaking victories with its diverse, inclusive range of winners this year.
To start off with, Chloé Zhao created history by becoming the first woman of colour to win an Oscar award and the second woman ever to bag the Best Director title (for her film Nomadland). The movie won big this year with three awards in its belt: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress in a Leading Role (Frances Mcdormand).
Adding to that, Emerald Fennell became the first woman in 13 years to win the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Promising Young Woman.
While many expected late actor Chadwick Boseman to bag the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role (for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), it was Anthony Hopkins who won the title for his performance in The Father.
Daniel Kaluuya won the Oscar award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah. In what came as another record-breaking victory, Yuh-jung Youn bagged the title for Best Supporting Actress for Minari. She is the first Korean actor to win an Oscar.
Makeup and hair artistes for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: Sergio Lopez-Rivera, Mia Neal, and Jamika Wilson, too set a record by becoming the first Black women to win an Oscar under this category.
