#Oscars/#Oscar2021: 2021 Academy Awards, The Complete Winners List

The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony held last night, Sunday.
Yuh-jung Young quickly won over everyone in Union Station, where the ceremony was held, with her win for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first Korean to win an Oscar in any category. Her speech was an absolute delight and one of the night's definite highlights. 
It was a huge night for Chloé Zhao's "Nomadland," and for Zhao herself, becoming the first Asian woman and woman of color to win for Best Director, and only the second woman ever to win in the category after 2010's "Hurt Locker" win for Kathryn Bigelow. 
At 83 years old, Sir Anthony Hopkins became the oldest-ever Oscar winner when he surprised many by taking home the Best Actor Oscar for his work in "The Father" -- Chadwick Boseman was favored to win this category. 
Hopkins was actually asleep in Wales when he won and reacted to the news once he woke up. He also honored Boseman in his speech, posted to Instagram. Saying he "did not expect to get this award," he said he was grateful before adding, "I want to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman who was taken from us far too early, and again, thank you all very much. I really did not expect this, so I feel very privileged and honored."
