Oscars 2021: Nomadland sweeps the Academy Awards – with big wins for British stars Daniel Kaluuya and Emerald Fennell
The makers of Minari, Sound Of Metal, Promising Young Woman, Soul and Mank all took home big prizes on Hollywood’s biggest night.
Nomadland has swept the Oscars with wins for its director Chloe Zhao and its lead Frances McDormand as well as best film – with British stars Daniel Kaluuya and Emerald Fennell also among the winners.
Zhao, who was born in China, is the first woman from an ethnically diverse background to win the Academy Award for directing, and the second woman in history, after Kathryn Bigelow’s triumph 11 years ago for The Hurt Locker.
Accepting her statuette for her directing, Zhao told the audience at Los Angeles’ Union Station: “I have always found goodness in the people I met, everywhere I went in the world.
“So this is for anyone who had the faith and the courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves, and to hold on to the goodness in each other, no matter how difficult it is to do that.
Nomadland continued its dominant run, with Frances McDormand picking up the award for best actress, who told the crowd the night needed a karaoke bar.
Sir Anthony Hopkins, who was absent from the ceremony, won the award for best actor for his performance in The Father, with the film also winning best adapted screenplay.
