Oscars 2021: ‘Nomadland’ wins best picture

Los Angeles: 'Nomadland' won the award for best picture Sunday at the 93rd Academy Awards, where Hollywood tried to make a case for the power of movies and turn a corner after 14 months of existential crisis for the industry.

The film’s director, Chloe Zhao, became only the second woman (after Kathryn Bigelow ) to win the Academy Award for best director.

Zhao is also the first Asian woman to win that award.

Anthony Hopkins won best actor for his role as a man coming to grips with dementia in 'The Father'. At age 83, he is the oldest acting winner ever. His second career win broke a winning streak for the late actor Chadwick Boseman, who was widely expected to win the top acting prize for his final screen performance in 'Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom'.
