The Walt Disney Company received a total of five Academy Awards at last night’s ceremony, all available to watch now across Disney’s streaming platforms, Disney+ and Hulu.

“Nomadland” received three Academy Awards, including Best Motion Picture, Actress in a Leading Role, and Directing. With “Nomadland,” Searchlight Pictures now has 43 Academy Awards including five Best Motion Picture winners since 2009: “Slumdog Millionaire,” “12 Years a Slave,” “Birdman,” “The Shape of Water,” and “Nomadland.”

“Nomadland” director Chloé Zhao is now the first Chinese woman and second woman ever to win Best Director. This is the third Oscar for lead actress Frances McDormand.

Disney+ received its first Oscar wins since launching in 2019, as home to Disney and Pixar’s “Soul,” winner of 2 Oscars.
