Golden Globes 2021: Nomadland wins Best Motion Picture- Drama
At the 78th Golden Globes, Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland topped the Best Motion Picture – Drama category. The win is the first time a film directed by a woman has ever won the top prize in the Globes’ 78 ceremonies. Zhao is also the first Asian woman to win best picture drama as a producer.
