The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2020 and early 2021. It took place in Los Angeles at both Union Station and the Dolby Theatre, on April 25, 2021 – two months later than planned, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema. Nominations had been announced on March 15, 2021.Nomadland won three awards, the most of the night, including Best Picture. The Father, Judas and the Black Messiah, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Mank, Soul and Sound of Metal won two awards each. Another Round, Colette, If Anything Happens I Love You, Minari, My Octopus Teacher, Promising Young Woman, Tenet, and Two Distant Strangers won one award each. The ceremony marked the first time since the 78th Academy Awards in 2006 that no film won more than three awards and the first time since the 44th Academy Awards in 1972 – when the show ended with an Academy Honorary Award to Charlie Chaplin – that the ceremony did not end with the award for Best Picture (it ended with Best Actress and Actor).According to Nielsen estimates (which began in 1974), this ceremony was the least-viewed Academy Awards telecast on record in the United States, with 10.4 million viewers.
