It was time once again to celebrate the past year in film at the events Sunday evening.
This year’s ceremony no doubt looked different due to the coronavirus drastically reducing the number of attendees and shifting the musical performances from their usual time slots to a pre-show before the ceremony.
Still, it was one of the year’s starriest nights. Celebrities like Sacha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried and more appeared in hopes of walking away with a golden statuette while others like halle-berry” target=”_blank”>Halle Berry< presented such awards.
This year has already been a historical one for the Academy, with a record number of female nominees for best director, as well as actors like Steven Yeun and Riz Ahmed becoming the first Asian American and Muslim actors, respectively, to be nominated for their leading performances.
