A difficult and good play Nomadland was the winner of the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday, she took Best Picture, Best Director of Chloé Zhao and Best Actress of Frances McDormand.
The victory completed the Oscars ceremony modified during the Covid-19 epidemic, the ceremony took place in front of an audience that was present a year later when the film industry was disrupted by the closure of cinemas and delays in the release of films.
Zhao was the first woman of color and the second woman to win the grand prize. Rewards of Nomadland as well showed success for Walt Disney and Hollywood, while the Netflix advertising company missed out on every major award.
McDormand, who stars inside Nomadland and shared a video with Zhao, asking viewers to return to the movies. “Please watch our video on a very large screen,” he said.
The Oscars included a number of past victories, after years of criticism that the awards did not recognize diversity, especially during #OscarsSoWhite campaign in 2015. Yuh-Jung Youn became the first Korean woman to win Best Supporting Actress in her career Threatening, while Daniel Kaluuya won the Best Supporting Actor Award Judas is the Black Messiah.
The biggest disappointment of the evening was securing the final prize, while Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor for it Father. The award was expected to be presented later to Chadwick Boseman, who died at the age of 43 from colon cancer last summer, how he worked in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
Zhao, a native of Beijing and attending a boarding school in the UK, quoted Three Cultures, a Confucian text that is taught almost exclusively in a Chinese school: “This is for everyone who had faith and courage to hold on to the good that they did,” he said in a statement.
But his comments – and almost all of the Oscars – were explored in China, the world’s largest financial market. Beijing ordered local journalists not to cover the event later Not divided, a document on the 2019 democratic protests in Hong Kong, was selected as the shortest document.
Zhao was confronted with what the Chinese nationals did in March after finding a 2013 interview in which they appeared to say there were “lies everywhere” in China. The controversy led to the liberated work of Nomadland in the country.
Actress Regina King opened the event by calling for the verdict in The case of Derek Chauvin last week. A former Minneapolis police officer has been convicted of three counts of murder George Floyd, an event that sparked international protests against racial injustice. “If things weren’t going well in Minneapolis I would probably have sold heels and walked in shoes,” he said.
Mia Neal, who became the first black woman to win an Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, “he said:” one day it will not be strange, there will be no landslides, it will be strange “.
The evening was a Netflix frustration, however, which was missing in the higher categories.
The giant has been looking for the Best Picture award, and entered Sunday’s event with two people: People, the top 10, and Chicago Test 7. The former, a black and white dignitary in ancient Hollywood, gained respect for the film and its design.
It is still unknown whether consumers will choose to watch the video through search engines or return to the cinema when the epidemic ends. Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief operating officer, told experts last week that the company was “not changing the way we make movies the way people watch a movie”.
Oscars ceremony, as well as Grammy Awards for music producers last month, abandoned most traditions. The event took place slowly at Union Station in Los Angeles and the broadcasters made an effort to re-launch the video recording and uplifting music from those selected years ago.
Oscars votes will not be available until the end of the week but epidemic prizes show up as well as popular sports competitions, including Grammys and Super Bowl, has fallen short in history.
