2021 Academy Awards: Complete Winners List

“Nomadland” enjoys a big night at the 93rd Oscars

April 26, 2021

The stars came out in Hollywood on Sunday night for the 93rd Academy Awards, broadcast live from Los Angeles’s Union Station and Dolby Theatre. The ceremony, delayed for a few months because of the pandemic, once again went hostless.

While David Fincher’s “Mank” entered the night with the most nominations (10), it was Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland” which took home the coveted Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress awards.

Several other films won multiple trophies, including “The Sound of Metal,” “The Father,” “Judas and the Black Messiah,” and the animated feature “Soul,” starring Stern Show veterans Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey. Other winning films included “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “Minari,” “Promising Young Woman,” and the aquatic documentary “My Octopus Teacher.”
