Here are the 2021 Oscar Winners List

Here is a list of all the 2021 Oscar Winners, from Daniel Kaluuya to director Chloé Zhao.

After a two month delay due to the ongoing pandemic,  the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony is finally upon us. The 2021 Oscars, which is airing on ABC from Los Angeles at Union Station, has no official host. But it is produced by director Steven Soderbergh, who had nominees attend the ceremony and is letting 2021 Oscar winners talk for as long as they like. (There has been no walk-off music.)

Nomadland, which is directed by Chloé Zhao — who is currently working on Eternals for Marvel — came into the evening with six nominations. The movie was a big winner taking home awards for Best Picture, Best Actress (Frances McDormand), and Best Director. Daniel Kaluuya, who gave stunning portrayal of Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah, won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar earlier, giving a memorable speech (turning his mom into a meme in the process.) The biggest shocker of the night came at the end. Chadwick Boseman was a huge favorite for his performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. But Anthony Hopkins ended up taking the award. (He was not in attendance to give a speech.)
