Oscars 2021 highlights: Chloé Zhao won Best Director, Nomadland won Best Picture and Best Actress, Irrfan Khan was honoured in the in memorium segment, and Anthony Hopkins pipped the late Chadwick Boseman for Best Actor. An Oscars ceremony unlike any other was held on Monday morning, with no host, no audience, nor face masks for nominees attending The 93rd Academy Award at Los Angeles’ Union Station — this year’s hub for a show usually broadcast from the Dolby Theatre. Chloé Zhao won Best Director, making her the first woman of colour, and the second woman ever, to win the award. Nomadland also won the Best Picture award, as well as Best Actress for Frances McDormand. Anthony Hopkins, in an upset, won the Best Actor award for The Father, pipping the late Chadwick Boseman.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom picked up two Oscars, with Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round winning Best International Feature Film. Ann Roth became the oldest woman to win an Oscar. She won the Best Costume Design award for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Pete Doctor picked up his third career Oscar for Soul, Pixar’s latest animated film. Minari’s Yuh-Jung Youn became the first Korean actor to win an Oscar, a year after Parasite became the first Korean film to be honoured at the Academy Awards.
