The 2021 Academy Awards have closed out this year's awards seasons - and here are all the winners from the big night.

After a two-month delay due to the pandemic, the stars and films selected for the 2021 shortlist walked a much smaller red carpet, but still bought their A-game when it came to the glitz and glam.

The ceremony was held in two locations, and saw last year's winners including Renee Zellweger reveal the stars who this year were taking home a little gold man.

See the full list of winners below...
