The 93rd Academy Awards have concluded and the winners, losers, and snubs are at the top of the discussion on Monday (April 26). While award ceremonies are always heavily debated, this year’s event landed mostly where it should have according to most.

Like other ceremonies that have taken place during the age of COVID-19, the Oscars did their best to keep things socially distanced and safe for the attendees. Much has already been said regarding Glenn Close’s Go-Go viral moment, and Daniel Kaluuya’s awkward acceptance speech is getting a lot of burn on various airwaves.

One moment that more than a few onlookers had some issues with was the late Chadwick Boseman not winning the Best Actor award for his final role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial Of The Chicago 7 was also seen as a snub for some folks despite the film winning the SAG Ensemble Award and deservingly so.

Regina King, who opened the ceremony in epic fashion while referencing Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict, her directorial debut One Night In Miami didn’t win for its adapted screenplay, supporting actor, and best song nominations which was a miss by some.

History was made this night with Chloé Zhao becoming the first woman of color and just the second woman period to win Best Director for Nomadland. Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson become the first Black-led team to win the Best Makeup and Hairstyling award.
