Soul, Nomadland, One Night In Miami and Judas and The Black Messiah were among the movies winning silverware at the 2021 Oscars.

Compared to past years, the 93rd annual Academy Awards (filmed inside of L.A.’s Union Station) felt more like a cozy reunion with Lil Rel bringing the party games and getting Glenn Close to dance to “Da Butt”. Nomadland led the awards, winning three of the six prizes the film was up for, including Best Picture. Bong Joon Ho and Sharon Choi reunited to announce Chloé Zhao’s Best Director win, making her the first woman of color and second woman ever to win the category, and Frances McDormand howled onstage after winning Best Picture for Nomadland.

Elsewhere, Daniel Kaluuya won Best Supporting Actor for Judas and the Black Messiah and then thanked his parents. Youn Yuh-jung won Best Supporting Actress for Minari and reassured her fellow nominees that she was just luckier than them. And in a truly shocking upset over Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor for The Father and became the oldest person to receive an Oscar at age 83. Jon Batiste, Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor, meanwhile, won best original score for Soul, and H.E.R., Dernst Emile II and Tiara Thomas won best song for “Fight For You” from Judas and the Black Messiah.
