Live Updates: Oscar winners, nominees and best moments

FAN Editor

The 93rd Annual Academy Awards are being held Sunday night after they were delayed for two months, and it will broadcast this year without a host. Instead of opting for acceptance speeches via Zoom, the Oscars will have two in-person locations: the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. Some overseas nominees will accept awards from London and Paris.

This year in Hollywood was anything but normal. With theaters across the country closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the movies were viewed on streaming services.

The 2021 Oscars are already set apart in its diversity of nominees from previous years. For the first time, there are two women nominated for best director. Chloe Zhao is the first Chinese woman and the first woman of color to be nominated for best director for her work “Nomadland.” Steven Yeun of “Minari” is the first Asian American to be nominated for best actor, and Riz Ahmed of “Sound of Metal” is the first Muslim to be nominated for best actor.

Zhao and “Nomadland” are considered the favorites to win after picking up the Golden Globe awards for best director and best picture, plus the Critics’ Choice Awards.

A full list of nominees and winners can be found here. The broadcast began at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
