And the Oscar goes to..

And the Oscar goes to..

The 93rd Academy Awards took place on Sunday night at Union Station in Los Angeles, California and honoured the best films of 2020 and early 2021.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for February 28th but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was the first time in 40 years that the Academy Awards have been rescheduled!

With being more intimate and low-key, the Oscars were very different from previous years for over obvious reasons. 

Lasting over three hours, watching the entire ceremony isn’t everybody’s cup of tea - we get it! With that being said, we didn’t want you to feel left out when everybody is talking about the big moments for the next week or so. So we’ve rounded up some moments from this year’s unique Academy Awards.

Let’s start off by saying that a lot of history was made on Sunday night at the awards ceremony!

Nomadland led the way at this year’s Oscars with three incredible wins for Best Picture, Best Director for Chloe Zhao and Actress in a Leading Role for Frances McDormand. Following a ton of movies picking up two wins each.

Despite leading the way with 10 nominations, Mank ended up with only two wins on the night.

Nomandland’s Chloe Zhao became the first woman of colour to win Best Director, and Daniel Kaluuya became the first black British actor to ever win an Oscar.

Sir Anthony Hopkins' win for ‘Best Actor’ made him the oldest recipient of the prestigious award. 

The night was definitely not short of record-breaking achievements!

Still on the topic of history being made, supporting actress nominee Glenn Close, broke another record of failing to take home an Oscar again. A record-breaking eighth loss. Don’t worry Glenn, Cruella never liked gold anyway!

Disney Pixar's Soul stole our hearts and by the looks of it, two Oscars too. The Pixar Animation won both awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score and we couldn't be happier! Congratulations to the entire cast and crew.

The Oscar for the best dressed goes to….

The Oscars 2021 boasts one all-important element that recent Hollywood ceremonies have been missing: the traditional red carpet.

Given that most award ceremonies that have happened over the past year have mostly been virtual, the 93rd Academy Awards brought back a taste of normality after what feels like forever with an in-person red carpet - and the looks were as spectacular as ever.

From Carey Mulligan looking like a real life Oscar statue to Regina King embracing the Blue fairy, the looks from Sunday night were incredible and we are so here for it!

As most fashion fans know, the most important award of the night is not the little gold statue, it's the title of best-dressed. 

If we were to choose the award for Best Dressed for the Oscars 2021, our winner would have to be Zendaya. 

One of our ultimate girl crushes has got to be in Zendaya and how incredible did she look?! She was the ultimate ray of sunshine that everybody needed to see through these uncertain times.

If you watched the Oscars or managed to see snippets of the red carpet, who do you think deserved the Best Dressed award?
