2021 Oscars: ‘Nomadland’ takes best picture, director; diversity reigns; see complete winners list

LOS ANGELES — The 93rd Academy Awards closed out an unusual awards season Sunday with an attempt to restore a little glamour to a pandemic-weary industry.

Although Los Angeles’ historic Union Station served as the primary venue, the red carpet arrivals were socially distanced and largely staggered to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions. In addition, only nominees, their guests and presenters were in attendances, following several rounds of testing and a required quarantine period.

David Fincher’s “Citizen Kane” origin story, “Mank” led the field with 10 nominations, with 10 other films scoring six nods each, including Shaka King’s historical thriller “Judas and the Black Messiah,” Florian Zeller’s dementia tale “The Father,” Aaron Sorkin’s courtroom drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” Lee Isaac Chung’s Korean American Dream story “Minari,” Chloé Zhao’s road-trip drama “Nomadland” and Darius Marder’s deaf-culture study “Sound of Metal,” USA Today reported.

Several firsts occurred during Sunday’s festivities, including actress Yuh-Jung Youn being the first Korean actor to win an Academy Award, claiming the Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in “Minari.”
