Oscars 2021: Full List of Winners and Nominees in the 93rd Academy Awards

It’s another year of celebration for the film industry as the 93rd Academy Awards came into fruition on April 25, 2021, despite being two months later than usual.

Due to travel restrictions and the need to enforce social distancing, the Oscars 2021 ceremony was held in an unusual setup, split into two locations: the Dolby Theater in Hollywood and Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. The usual red carpet parade and after parties have also been skipped for this year.

Below are the winners and nominees for the different categories in the 93rd Academy Awards.
