Oscars 2021: Complete List of Winners & Nominees of the 93rd Academy Awards

The 93rd Academy Awards have taken place, awarding some of the standout screen works to be released in what has been quite the troubling year for the entertainment industry… and, of course, the world at large.

Nomadland took top three major awards, winning Best Picture, Best Director for Chloé Zhao (becoming the second woman to ever win the award), and Best Actress for Frances McDormand. McDormand now has four Oscars under her belt; as a producer on Nomadland, she took home a Best Picture gong as well.

Anthony Hopkins earned his second Oscar, winning Best Actor for his acclaimed performance in The Father, which was also bestowed with Best Adapted Screenplay. At 83, Hopkins is now the oldest-ever acting Oscar winner. Winning Best Supporting Actor and Actress were Judas and the Black Messiah‘s Daniel Kaluuya and Minari‘s Yuh-jung Youn, respectively, both of whom gave speeches – while both decidedly different – that won the crowds.

Take a look at the complete list of winners and nominees below. We’ve included trailers for the winners, and you can even watch the powerful Colette, the Oscar winner for Best Documentary – Short Subject, in full at the bottom.
