Oscars 2021 highlights: ‘Nomadland wins’; Chloé Zhao makes Academy Award history; Glenn Close does ‘Da Butt’
Nobody knew what to expect from the 93rd Academy Awards, but we definitely didn’t expect that. The announcement of categories were mixed around this year, with best picture notably arriving before the two lead acting categories. Front-runner “Nomadland” took home the trophy, followed by its star and best actress winner Frances McDormand. The film’s director, Chloé Zhao, also became the first woman of color to win best director.
