Who won the Oscars last year?

It’s a question even the most fastidious awards watcher might have trouble answering off the top of their head: Who won the Oscars last year? While Best Picture winners are often impossible to forget, keeping track of who took home Academy Awards in the below-the-line categories often requires a little more work. Here’s who won at the ceremony last year — and a preview of the 2022 Oscars as well.

Who won the Oscars last year?

The 93rd Oscars took place on April 25, 2021, capping off the longest awards season in modern history. The Oscars ceremony was delayed by two months to account for the coronavirus pandemic, and the show — held in Union Station in Los Angeles as well as other venues around the globe — was the lowest-rated in Oscars history. Here is who won the Oscars last year.
