Who were the winners at the 2021 Oscars?
Check out the full list of winners at the 93rd Oscars, a very different ceremony due to the pandemic.
In the last year and with the different awards previously celebrated in the film industry, the expectations around the Oscars ceremony have been enormous.
Many of the criticisms were due to the lack of diversity and representation of these awards. Probably due to the historical moment in which we find ourselves, we miss and feel the need to find ourselves more and more reflected in those cultural products we consume.
If we look at the history of the awards, much progress has been made in this path of real representation in the industry. Not only because diversity has been included in the awards, but above all because it has been demanded. In 2015, #OscarsSoWhite were trending on Twitter after the announcement that all 20 acting nominees were white. Today, Latinos, Asians, Afro-descendants, the lgtb community, indigenous people and people with diverse abilities are increasingly finding their space in the film industry.
This year, among the highlights have been the winners who represent for the first time a community normally off the Oscar's radar.
Chinese director Chloé Zhao, who became the first Asian woman and only the second woman in the award's history to be recognized for her directing work; Yuh-Jung Youn became the first South Korean to win an Oscar in an acting category; although this would be his second Oscar, at 83, Hopkins became the oldest actor to win an Oscar on Sunday; Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson are the first black women to win an Oscar in the hair and makeup category for their work on Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
