Oscars Winners 2021: Know who bagged ‘best actor’ to ‘best picture’ award

New Delhi: One of the prestigious awards, the Academy Awards or popularly known as the Oscars given for artistic and technical merit, took place on April 25 to honor the best films and talents in the entertainment industry. In this socially distanced 93rd Oscars, held amid coronavirus pandemic, ‘Nomadland’ came out to be the big winner, taking home the most number of awards (three) including Best Picture, Best Director (for Chloé Zhao), and Best Actress (Frances McDormand).

The 2021 Oscars winners were fairly spread out to be fair, with six films grabbing two prizes apiece: ‘The Father’ for Best Actor going to Anthony Hopkins and Best Adapted Screenplay, ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ including Best Supporting Actor for Daniel Kaluuya, while Ma Rainey’s ‘Black Bottom’, David Fincher’s old Hollywood drama ‘Mank’ including Best Cinematography, Pixar’s ‘Soul’ including Best Animated Feature Film, and Amazon’s ‘Sound of Metal’ including Best Film Editing and Best Sound.

Amongst studios, Netflix was the leading winner at the 2021 Oscars with seven awards but none of those wins came in any of the traditionally big categories. In fact, it was old guard ‘Disney’ (five) which ruled that department, thanks to ‘Nomadland’ picking three of the big four – Picture, Director, Actor and Actress.

Warner Bros – three for ‘Tenet’, ‘Judas’ and the ‘Black Messiah’ was next, with both Sony Pictures’ ‘The Father’ and Amazon Studios’ ‘Sound of Metal’ garnering two apiece. While, Netflix’s ‘Mank’ had the most nominations (10) but it fizzled out at the end.
