Black wins Best Picture trophy at the colorless 93rd Oscar Awards.

The 93rd Oscar Awards which held on Sunday made history even before the ceremony as the list of nominees contained notable firsts.

It marked the first time an all-Black producing team was nominated for best picture, the first time two actors of Asian descent received a nod for best actor and the first year that two women were nominated for best director.

Chloe Zhao was the biggest winner at the event, taking home the best directing trophy, becoming the second woman to claim the title.

Her film, “Nomadland,” also snagged the top prize of the night, best picture.

Yuh-Jung Youn was the first Korean performer to win at the ceremony in one of the four acting categories.

She won best supporting actress prize for her work in Lee Isaac Chung’s “Minari.”

The biggest upset of the night was Anthony Hopkins winning the best actor trophy over the late Chadwick Boseman.

The ceremony was an intimate experience for attendees and the audience at home.

Owing to travel restrictions and a need for greater social distancing because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the show was shared across different locations.

Union Station, Los Angeles was used as the main set piece for the show.

There were international locations via satellite.
