The 93rd Academy Awards will air on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET.
A special night is in store for all the Oscar nominees, especially for Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon, whose film Wolfwalkers has been nominated for best animation feature.
In preparation for a night of glitz and glam, we've taken a trip down memory lane and put together the complete list of Irish people who have been honored with an Oscar in the past.
