Chloé Zhao, Best Director and Best Picture winner for Nomadland

  • Nomadland wins three of big four (Picture, Director, Actress)
  • Anthony Hopkins wins best Best Actor for The Father
  • Chloé Zhao only the second female winner for best director

Nomadland was the big winner at the 2021 Oscars, taking home the most number of awards (three) including Best Picture, Best Director (for Chloé Zhao), and Best Actress (Frances McDormand). The 2021 Oscars winners were fairly spread out to be fair, with six films grabbing two prizes apiece: The Father (for Best Actor for Anthony Hopkins and Best Adapted Screenplay), Judas and the Black Messiah (including Best Supporting Actor for Daniel Kaluuya), Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, David Fincher's old Hollywood drama Mank (including Best Cinematography), Pixar's Soul (including Best Animated Feature Film), and Amazon's Sound of Metal (including Best Film Editing and Best Sound).

Amongst studios, Netflix was the leading winner at the 2021 Oscars with seven awards but none of those wins came in any of the traditionally big categories. In fact, it was old guard Disney (five) which ruled that department, thanks to Nomadland picking three of the big four (Picture, Director, Actor and Actress). Warner Bros. (three for Tenet, and Judas and the Black Messiah) was next, with both Sony Pictures (The Father) and Amazon Studios (Sound of Metal) garnering two apiece. Netflix's Mank had the most nominations (10) but it fizzled out at the end.
