List of Oscar 2021 Film Awards Winners: Part 1

On the night of April 25-26, 2021, the first post-quarantine ceremony for the most anticipated film award, the Oscar, took place in Los Angeles.

Today we will find out the names of the best actors and actresses, as well as - who was named the best director! But first, a few words about the film award itself…

The Oscar is the main film award in the United States, which has a rather interesting history... In the late 1920s, the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts was created: by the way, today the Academy has more than six thousand members... A few years later, the sculptor George Stanley was elected to create a legendary figurine - a knight with a sword in his hand, which stands on a can of film ... Such an interesting design was developed by Cedric Gibbons - an American art director, production designer and architect. Each figurine is made of gold-plated Britannium and rests on a plinth of black marble... This is such a prestigious award for achievements in the field of cinema! And now - about the winners of the Oscar-2021 film award!

Anthony Hopkins plays an 80-year-old man who suffers from memory and time lapses. Sometimes - his hero is confused in his own memories ... With the advent of strangers in the house, Anthony becomes quick-tempered and suspicious as never before ... The old man is unable to understand what is happening around him ...
