The 93rd Academy Awards, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, honored the best films of 2020 and early 2021.
The ceremony took place in Los Angeles, at both the Dolby Theatre and Union Station, on Sunday, April 25, two months later than originally planned, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema.
But it was worth the wait as the ceremony happened LIVE and in person, following a year's worth of virtual awards shows.
For the third consecutive ceremony, there was no singular host. Instead an "ensemble cast" of 15 presenters including will be involved in the ceremony in some way, including Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Reese Witherspoon, Zendaya, and more guided the show.
Big winners of the night included Daniel Kaluuya with Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Judas and the Black Messiah, Emerald Fennell for Best Original Screenplay of Promising Young Woman, Yuh-Jung Youn with Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Minari, Frances McDormand for Best Actress with Nomadland, Anthony Hopkins with Best Actor for The Father and more.
There were also some major winners (and sorry, losers) on the red carpet!

Nineteen years since her historic Oscar win, the actress wore a romantic berry-colored Dolce & Gabbana gown and debuted a striking blunt bob.

Off beat! The musician styled his black suit with a pair of gold Crocs (yes Crocs) and purple socks.
Worst: Bianca Oana
The Romanian screenwriter unfortunately chose an unflattering black and gold striped ensemble which included an ill-fitting sleeveless jacket.
Worst: Erica Rivinoja
We actually like the screenwriter's fuchsia high-neck pleated gown but we can't stop looking at her strange shrimp-adorned clutch.....and no, it's not our taste.
Worst: Martin Desmond Roe, Travon Free
While wearing gold was on trend, the Two Distant Strangers co-directors' coordinating Dolce & Gabbana suits just ended up looking cheesy. What we did love though was that the suits were lined inside with the names of those killed by police brutality in the United States. We just wish their powerful message wasn't lost in their outdated looks.
