The 2021 Academy Awards ceremony is all about the winners. Sure, being a nominee is nice, but Hollywood's greatest didn't go on a juice cleanse for the last five days to come in second place. You want your name etched in the tomes of Hollywood immortality? You gotta get one of those golden man statues. And this year's event handed them out in one of the weirdest Oscars ever! 

In addition to Glenn Close introducing her butt to the world, history was made during the 2021 Oscars. Nomadland director Chloe Zhao became the first woman of color to win Best Director, adding another important note to this year's ceremony, which was also the first time two women have been nominated for Best Director in the same year (the other being Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman). Minari's Steven Yeun was the first Asian American actor to be nominated for Best Actor, while Chadwick Boseman received a posthumous nomination for his performance inMa Rainey's Black Bottom, but Anthony Hopkins won the prize for The Father. But the big winner of the night was Nomadland, which added two other major awards: Best Picture and Best Actress for Frances McDormand
