Nomadland won the Oscar for best picture on Sunday, while the film's director Chloé Zhao made history as the first woman of colour to win the Academy Award for best director.

Frances McDormand also won the Oscar for best actress in the film, which follows a woman who leaves her small town to join a group of wanderers in the American West.

"I have always found goodness in the people I've met everywhere I went in the world," Zhao said during her best director acceptance speech. "This is for anyone who has the faith and the courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves and to hold on to the goodness in others no matter how difficult it is to do that."

In a departure from previous decades, the best picture Oscar was not the last handed out; it was followed by the best actress award for McDormand and Anthony Hopkins's best actor win for The Father.

Earlier, Youn Yuh-jung, became the first South Korean actress to win the Academy Award for best supporting actress.

Youn won for her performance in Minari, which is based partly on the life story of director Lee Isaac Chung.

Earlier, Daniel Kaluuya's portrayal of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah earned him the Academy for best supporting actor.

"I'd like to thank my mom," Kaluuya said, as his mother teared up while watching. "You gave me everything. You gave me your factory settings. So I could stand at my fullest height."

The 93rd Academy Awards, the most ambitious award show held during the COVID-19 pandemic, rolled out a red carpet and restored some glamour to a movie institution, but with a radically transformed — and in some ways downsized — telecast.

The ceremony — fashioned as a movie of its own — kicked off with opening credits and a dynamic Regina King entrance, as the camera followed the actress and One Night in Miami director in one take as she strode with an Oscar in hand into Los Angeles's Union Station and onto the stage. Inside the transit hub, nominees sat a cozy, lamp-lit tables around an intimate amphitheatre.

The show was designed to look different this year. Speaking with The Associated Press before the show, filmmaker and producer Steven Soderbergh said the event was made to look like a "movie."

Oscar nominations this year are more diverse than they've ever been, featuring nine actors of colour and two women up for best director. But low ratings for both the Golden Globes and the Grammys have raised questions about the relevance of awards shows. 2:03
