The Oscars is an event that fans and industry professionals in the entertainment and arts field will have marked first on their annual calendars.
This year didn’t disappoint as the 93rd Academy Awards was held both virtually and in-person across two Los Angeles venues in the Union Station and the Dolby Theatre.
Nomadland were the big winners on Sunday night winning three awards, including best picture. The Western-drama film’s director, Chloe Zhao, also made history as the first woman of colour and second female to win best director.
Daniel Kaluuya became the first black British actor to win an Oscar, receiving the best supporter award for his role in Judas and the Black Messiah with a funny acceptance speech.
I feel like Daniel Kaluuya did this is for all the kids whose Mom publicly embarrassed them at some point. That said, based on Moms reaction .. Daniel might wanna go pick a switch before he comes back to the table 😂

Despite missing out on the Best Supporting Actress award, Glenn Close was the star of the Oscars in her own way, dancing to the 1988 hit “Da Butt” by Experience Unlimited.

A special mention also has to go out to Sir Anthony Hopkins, who at 83-years-old became the oldest winner of best actor for his performance in The Father.
