Oscars 2021: all the winners of an exceptional edition!

Postponed for two months because of the pandemic, the 2021 Oscars ceremony took place in Los Angeles on the night of April 25-26. But not in video as was the case with the Golden Globes but in face-to-face.

A year after the triumph of Joker and Parasite, who are the winners of this edition like no other? Nomadland, Judas and The Black Messiah, Mank, Sound Of Metal, Promising Young Woman, Minari, les Sept de Chicago, Drunk, Le Blues de Ma Rainey, Tenet, Soul, Father ?

No surprise (and it’s deserved), Nomadland (social drama against the backdrop of a road movie) signed a historic treble collecting both the Oscar for best film and best director for Chloe Zhao (only the second Oscar in history for a woman after Kathryn Bigelow with Minesweepers in 2010 and the first for an Asian director) and Best Actress (the third in the career of Frances mcdormand).
