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!

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 We just wish their powerful message wasn't lost in their outdated looks.
