Oscar Winners 2021: Full List

The 93rd Academy Awards are in the books, though not everyone was pleased with the ending. Producers Steven Soderbergh, Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins truly planned an Oscars ceremony unlike any other, as it culminated not with Best Picture, but Best Actor, which in the night's biggest surprise, went to Anthony Hopkins instead of Chadwick Boseman.

Though David Fincher's Mank entered the evening with more Oscar nominations than any other movie, it was Chloé Zhao's Nomadland that won the Best Picture prize on Sunday night, with Zhao winning Best Director as well. She is now just the second woman to win that particular Oscar along with Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) as well as the first woman of color to win that award -- as if interest in her next film, Marvel's Eternals, wasn't already high enough.

Though the late Boseman entered the night as the heavy favorite to win Best Actor, it was veteran Hopkins who pulled off the upset with his tour-de-force performance in The Father, which also edged out Riz Ahmed's magnificent work in Sound of Metal. It was Hopkins' second win following his memorable turn as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs, while Frances McDormand won her third acting Oscar for Nomadland, holding off Viola Davis (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman). She won Best Actress back in the '90s for Fargo and recently won again for Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri, so many prognosticators were skeptical that she'd win again so soon.

In the supporting acting races, Daniel Kaluuya took home his first Oscar for his spirited supporting turn in Judas and the Black Messiah, and Korean superstar Yuh-jung Youn won for her wonderful turn in Minari.

Following a dazzling intro featuring One Night in Miami director Regina King, the ceremony began with the screenplay categories, where Promising Young Woman and The Father triumphed over The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Nomadland, respectively. The early win for The Father hinted at a strong base of support within the Academy, which may be why Hopkins triumphed over Boseman, whose film wasn't nominated for Best Picture.

Elsewhere, Thomas Vinterberg's Danish film Another Round won the Oscar for Best International Feature Film and Vinterberg gave a touching speech about his daughter, who died shortly before filming began. As expected, Pixar's Soul was named Best Animated Feature and Netflix's My Octopus Teacher won the Oscar for Best Documentary -- something that few were predicting a couple of months ago.

Netflix also saw Ma Rainey's Black Bottom win Best Costume Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Mank win Best Cinematography and Best Production Design. Elsewhere, Amazon's Sound of Metal also picked up a pair of Oscar wins for Best Editing and Best Sound, the latter of which was especially well deserved.

This year's shorts awards went to Two Distant Strangers (live-action) Colette (documentary) and If Anything Happens I Love You (animated). Finally, Christopher Nolan's bravura action movie Tenet triumphed in the category of Best Visual Effects, which was also widely expected.
