Complete List of Academy Award Oscar Winners for 2021!

If you've been following me on social media then you'll know that this year, I was given the opportunity to join the press room for the Academy Awards! For a lifelong movie nerd like me, this was a dream come true!

To prepare for the big night of interviewing Oscar winners, I binge watched all of the Oscar nominated films, researched the cast, crew, directors and producers and read tons of legal paperwork. On the day of the Oscars, even though the press room was virtual this year, I decided to call in the glam squad, get dolled up and take photos to document the day. Let's face it, when invited to something as prestigious as the Oscar's, you want to make sure you look your best!

I'd be lying if I said I didn't have favorite films and actors or a favorite in every category, especially after watching Glenn Close's performance in "Hillbilly Elegy", but, as you know, we can't always get our way.

I took a few screenshots of the press room just to document the experience and here are my favorites.

Here is a complete list last night's Oscar winners.
