The Oscars 2021 will undoubtedly be one of the most interesting ceremonies of this season (and in the history of the Academy), and these are the moments that marked it.
The 2021 Oscars will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most special ceremonies in the Academy’s history. Conducted differently due to the current health crisis, it became a much more private and emotional event due to the encounter between the biggest stars in Hollywood. Here we will be updating with the best moments of the ceremony.
Some of these moments came from the Oscar winners.
Regina King’s speech
There could be no better option than Regina King to kick off the Oscars with a short but sentimental speech that acknowledged the difficulty of working in 2020 as well as a recent crisis in the United States. He also took the opportunity to give some curious facts about the nominees for Best Original Screenplay , the winner being Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.
Thomas Vinterberg wins by Another Round
Another Round was one of the best films of the year and the Oscar for Thomas Vinterberg was well deserved, and his speech was one of the most emotional, as he spoke about the difficulties of making the film shortly after his daughter died due to a car accident, even close to tears. For many it is considered the Oscar that the director was missing, who also recognized the work of Mads Mikkelsen.
Daniel Kaluuya wins Best Supporting Actor
Kaluuya also gave one of the best speeches that included seriousness, hope and a bit of jokes. He talked about the current situation, about Fred Hampton who he played in the tape and left his mother confused after saying “My parents had sex!” Unexpected, but great moment at the Oscars.
Bong Joon Ho presents the Best Director award
Chloe Zhao was the winner of the Best Director award , presented by last year’s winner Bong Joon Ho , who took the opportunity to speak about his perspective on filmmakers’ cinema, noting that Zhao had a very unique sense for making films by creating. a special world. This being the first time that an award is presented in its entirety in another language, it was a historic moment for the ceremony. Zhao, for his part, gave an important speech on kindness.
Marlee Matlin as presenter
Marlee Matlin is the first Oscar winner to have a hearing impairment, and considering that a lot of attention was paid to that community at the awards due to Sound of Metal, her appearance as a presenter was particularly special, delivering Best Short Documentary and Best Documentary. She received help from a translator, while she spoke in sign language. Another act of diversity at the Oscars.
Youn Yuh-jung Wins Best Supporting Actress
The one and only Youn Yuh-jung received her award for Minari and gave one of the most special speeches of the night, first complimenting Brad Pitt, then noting that not everyone knows how to pronounce his name and apologizing for rambling. She is the first South Korean woman to win the Best Supporting Actress award.
Harrison Ford remembering Blade Runner
In a very curious moment of the ceremony, Harrison Ford gave some “notes” on a film in which he was, Blade Runner , pointing out – with humor – some of the things that the producers of the film complained about, who were in against the vision of Ridley Scott . This came during the introduction to the Best Editing award , which went to Sound of Metal.
Glenn Close dancing Da Butt
Lil Rel made a special game of guessing Oscar winning or losing songs, and Glenn Close turned out to be an “expert” in hip hop history talking about Da Butt, the iconic US song, but what blew up the room was her performance. of the dance. Unexpected from the legendary actress.
