Oscar Movies: Nomadland (2021)

At the 93rd Academy Awards, Nomadland won Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress for McDormand, from a total of 6 nominations.

Zhao became the first Asian woman and only the second woman ever to win Best Director, while McDormand became the first woman and fourth person ever to win Oscars for both acting and producing, as well as the first person ever to win Oscar Awards as both producer and performer for the same film.

It is also the first Searchlight or 20th Century Studios release to win Best Picture since The Walt Disney Company acquired the assets of 21st Century Fox, including Searchlight.

This does not include retroactive wins for 20th or Searchlight-released films, nor the four films released by Miramax, the last being 2007’s No Country For Old Men, that had won when Disney owned that company.

It also won Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director at the 78th Golden Globe Awards, four awards including Best Film at the 74th British Academy Film Awards, and four awards including Best Film at the 36th Independent Spirit Awards
