0 330

“Nomadland,” the highly-acclaimed drama starring Frances McDormand as a woman traveling the American West in a van in the wake of the Great Recession, has been named top picture of 2020 by the San Francisco Bay Area Film Critics Circle.

The film — which is based on the 2017 non-fiction book, “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century,” by Jessica Bruder — also won three other major awards from the organization. Chloé Zhao triumphed in both the director and film editing categories and McDormand was named best actress. “Nomadland” also received an honorable mention for the cinematography work by Joshua James Richards.

“Nomadland” premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September, securing the Golden Lion award, then picked up the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival later that month. It is scheduled to get a full theatrical release — whatever that might end up meaning in the COVID era — in February.
