Here’s the complete list of 2021 Oscar winners

Chloé Zhao and “Nomadland” were the big winners at the 93rd Academy Awards, winning best picture, director and lead actress (Frances McDormand) honors in a ceremony that also presented some historic firsts. Emerald Fennell started it early as the first woman to win a screenplay award since 2008. Yuh-Jung Youn’s win as the first Korean actor was widely predicted but Anthony Hopkins’ lead actor win for “The Father” came as a surprise to most.

The ceremony opened with a poignant speech from Oscar winner Regina King and was held at Los Angeles’ Union Station, which at one time hosted many such events and has seen a recent restoration. There were also special segments from its usual venue, the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Producers of the show — Emmy nominee Jesse Collins, Oscar nominee Stacey Sher and Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh — predicted a lively ceremony. Odd speeches and lauded musical performances helped them attempt to fulfill their promise.

And the 2021 Academy Award winners are:
