The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are a collection of awards given out in the film industry for creative and technical achievement. They are widely recognized as the most coveted and well-known awards in the film industry.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) awards are an international acknowledgment of excellence in film accomplishments as determined by the voting membership of the Academy. The winners in each category receive a replica of a golden statuette as a trophy, formally known as the "Academy Award of Merit," but more widely known as the "Oscar." The statuette is in the style of Art Deco and portrays a knight.

The 93rd Academy Award ceremony will celebrate the best films in 2020 and early 2021, which will be awarded by the Academy of Motive Picture Arts and Sciences. It will take place on April 25, 2021, at the Dolby Theater and Union Stations in Los Angeles, two months later than initially expected, owing to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on film.
