The 93rd annual Oscars premiered Sunday night in LA’s Union Station with no host this year. Instead of being delivered remotely, awards were received in front of a small crowd of nominees with music curated by Questlove.

Nomadland proved to be the night’s sweeper, winning three out of  its six nominations. Not only did it win best picture, but Frances McDormand won best actress in a leading role for her performance in the film. 

Director, Chloé Zhao, won best director for her work on the film, making her the first woman of color to take the category. 

The only other woman to win best director was Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker in 2009.

Anthony Hopkins, who won best actor in a leading role for his performance in The Father, also made history by becoming the oldest person to win an Oscar. 

This year the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award was given to Tyler Perry, who received an entire segment covering his humanitarian work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
