Asian Chloé Zhao became the first non-white woman to win the Best Prime Time Zone category at the Golden Globes, at dawn on Monday (1st). Critically acclaimed Nomadland also received the trophy for Best Drama Film at the ceremony.
In the plot, Fern (Oscar Frances McDormand) gathers his belongings in a van and leaves for an exploration in the United States, after the economic collapse of the industrial colony, where he lived, in rural Nevada.
Chloé is the second Asian person to win the director’s statuette at the event – the first was Ang Lee (2001 and 2006). And the second female director to be awarded since 1984, the year that Barbra Streisand was awarded with Yentl.
The director, who is producing the Marvel film, The Eternals, broke another taboo at the Golden Globes by becoming the first woman to win in the Best Picture category.
Nomadland was based on Jessica Bruder’s book, Nomadland: Surviving in the Twenty-First Century (Nomadland: Surviving America in the 21st Century, in free translation).
