Home Movies “Nomadland” Wins Best Picture, Director at Critics Choice, On Its Way to...

Chloe Zhao won Best Director for her Best Picture, “Nomadland,” at the Critics Choice Awards tonight.

The accolades follow wins at the Golden Globes and many critics prizes around the country. “Nomadland” will win Best Picture at the Academy Awards on April 25th.

Frances McDormand, the star, would win Best Actress if she wanted to or cared. But it’s clear she’s doesn’t care. Carey Mulligan has emerged as a leading contender for Best Actress from “Promising Young Woman. Focus Features has done such a great job with their campaign that they all kind of deserve it. The other main contender is Viola Davis, from “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Chadwick Boseman, the late star of “Ma Rainey,” won Best Actor. He has the inside track to win the Oscar.

The big surprises were in Supporting Actor and Actress. Daniel Kaluuya won again, for “Judas and the Black Messiah.” Maria Bakalova, a relative newcomer from Bulgaria, won for “Borat Subsequent Movie.” She might win an Oscar. Crazier things have happened!
