Oscars 2021: The Complete Winners List

The Academy Awards look different this year: The red carpet has been hemmed, and the after-parties cut.

The ceremony is being held almost two months later than usual, at an in-person event split between the Dolby Theater in Hollywood and Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

It’s an unusual setup in an unusual year, where many of the films were released during a time when movie theaters were largely closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Netflix has the most nominations, but that may not translate to wins

In recent years, Netflix’s films have had no trouble earning top spots on Oscar ballots, but it has had a hard time turning those nominations into trophies.

The streaming service first appeared on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ radar in 2013 when it was nominated for best documentary feature for “The Square.”

Eight years later, Netflix has a total of 36 Oscar nominations across 17 films — the most of any distributor in this year’s slate. Its film “Mank,” a film centered around “Citizen Kane” co-writer Herman Mankiewicz, leads the pack with 10 nods.

While Netflix is outpacing its rivals in nominations in recent years, it hasn’t collected many wins. Since 2013, the streamer has garnered 54 nominations and eight wins.

Last year, Netflix had 24 nominations, the most of any distributor at the Academy Awards, but won only two categories. It seems the streaming service could be poised for a repeat of that fate this year. However, Netflix’s track record of nominations proves that it has a place in Hollywood.

The Oscars’ red carpet features maskless celebrities and nominees

Just looking at the nominees on this year’s red carpet, you’d almost forget that the world is still in the midst of a global pandemic.

The stars are dressed to the nines and many can be seen smiling, sans the face masks that have become so commonplace in the last year.

While attendees of the the 93rd annual Academy Awards are not required to wear masks on-camera, they will be sporting the face coverings during commercial breaks and while conversing with others off-camera.

Despite obvious social distancing measures between interviewers and celebrity nominees, the glamour of the red carpet is a strange — and welcome — return to normalcy. It should help set the award show apart from the others that have aired since the pandemic began.

This year’s Oscars will see the sound editing and sound mixing awards combined into one category. The new award is now known as the Academy Award for sound.

This change was viewed as inevitable by many in the industry, as there is a great deal of overlap between the two disciplines. Editing involves creating and gathering individual sounds while mixing is what happens to those sounds afterward.

This year’s nominees for best sound are:

  • “Greyhound”
  • “Mank”
  • “News of the World”
  • “Soul”
  • “Sound of Metal”

‘Nomadland’ leads the pack for best picture heading into the Oscars

Heading into Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, there are a few clear front-runners in major categories like best picture and best director, but the race is still wide open in others, like best actress.

Chloe Zhao’s “Nomadland” has swept the awards season and seems poised to nab best picture as well as the best directing award for the filmmaker, barring any unforeseen upsets.

Chadwick Boseman, who unexpectedly passed away after a four-year battle with colon cancer that he concealed from the public, is likely to pick up the best actor award for his performance in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Daniel Kaluuya is expected to snag the best supporting actor trophy for his performance in “Judas and the Black Messiah,” while Yuh-Jung Youn appears to be on track to become the second Asian woman to win an acting prize at the ceremony.

The best actress award, on the other hand, is anyone’s guess. A different actress won the prize at the top award shows leading up to the Oscars.

For the first time in Academy Award history, two women have been nominated for best director

For the first time in Academy Awards history, two women have been nominated for best director. In the 93-year run of the awards, only five other women have been recognized in the category, even though more than a dozen films directed by a female filmmaker have been nominated for best picture during that time.

Chloe Zhao (“Nomadland”) and Emerald Fennell (“Promising Young Woman”) are the latest additions to that list, and there’s a strong chance that one of them will take home the prize. After all, Zhao has already won directing awards from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Directors Guild of America.

If Zhao takes home a win, she will be the second woman to do so in nearly 100 years. The last was Kathryn Bigelow, who won the Oscar in 2010 for “The Hurt Locker.”

Lina Wertmuller (“Seven Beauties”), Jane Campion (“The Piano”), Sofia Coppola (“Lost in Translation”) and Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”) are the only other female directors who have been up for the best directing award.

The historic nomination of two female directors signals that Hollywood is changing. Not only are women getting more opportunities within the industry, they are opening the door for a new generation of female filmmakers.
