The 93rd Academy Awards made history before the first award was even handed out, as there were notable firsts in this year’s nominees. It was the first time an all-black producing team was nominated for best picture, the first time two actors of Asian descent received a nod for best actor and the first year that two women were nominated for best director.

‘Nomadland’, a recession-era tale about a community of van dwellers in the American West, won the Oscar for best picture on Sunday.

The lead actor of the film, Frances McDormand won her third Oscar for Nomadland cementing her reputation as one of the best actresses of her generation.
