Nomadland has swept the Oscars with wins for directing and its lead Frances McDormand as well as best film – with British stars Daniel Kaluuya and Emerald Fennell also among the winners.

The film’s victory this year makes it the second in as many years to have an Asian director and win best picture. It is also the second time in a row that best director has been won by an Asian filmmaker, with Chloe Zhao taking the spoils.

Zhao also becomes only the second woman to win the best director Academy Award.

Sir Anthony Hopkins, who was absent from the ceremony, won the award for best actor for his performance in The Father, with the film also winning best adapted screenplay.

Elsewhere, Daniel Kaluuya was named best supporting actor for his role as Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Judas And The Black Messiah, while Emerald Fennell walked off with best original screenplay for her debut movie Promising Young Woman.

Judas And The Black Messiah also won best original song, giving the film two wins in LA.

Sound Of Metal, starring Briton Riz Ahmed as a punk drummer who loses his hearing, also took home two awards – for sound design and editing.

Also scoring two trophies apiece was Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, for make up and costume design, Mank, for cinematography and production design and Soul, which won best animation and best score.
