Oscars 2021: Chloé Zhao becomes the second woman to win the Oscar for best director and sweeps ‘Nomadland’

The 93rd Oscars ceremony was the first major in-person social event since all of them were canceled in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Expectations were high and the Hollywood Academy has gone to great lengths to make the gala look as normal as possible. A display of celebrities, haute couture and practically the same slow tempo that the screenwriters of the Oscars cannot overcome. Chloé Zhao and her ‘Nomadland’ culminated an award-winning run with the most important Oscars of the night: best adapted screenplay and direction for Zhao herself, best actress for Frances McDormand , and it has become the best film of 2020.

The actress and director Regina King marked the beginning of the gala, from the Union State station in Los Angeles and not from the traditional Kodak theater, saying that the guests, most of whom do not wear masks, “have been retested, tested, vaccinated, they are socially distanced and follow rigorous protocols. “We mourn the loss of many,” he recalled. Actresses Carey Mulligan and Andra Day dazzled with their usual Oscars glamor. Mulligan’s dress was clearly seen in many of the general shots of the gala.

Glenn Close saw the Oscar snatched from him for the eighth time but in exchange he saved a tedious moment by ‘dancing’ like no one else. Korean Yuh-Jung Youn, the cheeky grandmother of ‘Minari’, gave the bell and rose to 73 years with the statuette for best supporting actress in her first nomination. Daniel Kaluuya, who came out of the ceremony as best supporting actor for ‘Judas and the black messiah’, received his statuette saying he was “happy to be alive.”

Anthony Hopkins gave the surprise of the night by winning the Oscar for best actor for his work as an old man with Alzheimer’s in ‘The father’ with the magnificent Olivia Coleman.

A night marked by social distance and by the low influx of guests on the most important night in Hollywood, which has still managed to shine with well-known faces from Hale Berry and Laura Dern to Joaquin Phoenix, René Zellweger or Rita Moreno herself from West Side Story.

The second woman to win the Oscar for directing

Chloé Zhao , the Beijing-born filmmaker whose independent films chronicle life in the heart of America, became the second woman to win an Oscar for best director on Sunday . The 39-year-old filmmaker wowed Academy voters with her third film ‘Nomadland,’ a fictional drama that borders on documentary about the invisible community of older Americans who live in RVs and call the road home.

Following Kathryn Bigelow’s 2010 Directing Award for ‘In Hostile Land’, Zhao is the second female winner in the 93-year history of the Oscars. This is for anyone who has the faith and courage to hold on to the goodness within. And cling to the goodness of others, “he declared upon receiving the award for best director.

Born Zhao Ting and the daughter of a wealthy executive in a Chinese steel company, the director left the country as a teenager to attend a British boarding school, finishing her training in Los Angeles and New York.

But Zhao soon fell in love with the vast and wild rural settings of his adopted homeland, the United States: ‘Nomadland’ is just his latest tribute to the spectacular landscapes of sparsely populated, “passing” states like South Dakota and Nebraska. Zhao came across images of the Lakota Indian nation by chance while in film school in New York.

And feeling disconnected abroad in her early twenties, she decided she couldn’t do a better story about the Big Apple than “the ones that have already been told,” and decided to “go west.”

Her first film ‘Songs My Brothers Taught Me’, about a teenage girl who dreams of a life beyond the Pine Ridge reservation, forced her to spend months immersed in the remote Indian region of the Midwest. The film won awards at festivals, but Zhao’s breakthrough came two years later with ‘The Rider,’ another close to Western film shot in Pine Ridge and Badlands National Park.
