Nomadland and Borat Subsequent Moviefilm triumphed the 78th Golden Globe Awards
Chloé Zhao’s ‘Nomadland’ and Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ triumphed the 78th Golden Globe Awards held on Sunday night.
‘Nomadland’ wins the top prize – best drama film — which stars Frances McDormand as a homeless woman traveling through the American West.
Chloé Zhao was named the best director for the film, making her the second female winner in the Globes history, after Barbara Streisand in 1983.
“Thank you to everyone who made it possible to do what I love,” Zhao said in response to naming the best director.
She said: “I fell in love with making movies and telling stories because it gave us a chance to laugh and cry together, to learn from each other, and to have more compassion for each other.”
‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’, the sequel of 2006’s hugely successful Borat, was named best musical or comedy film.
“Thank you to the all-white Hollywood Foreign Press,” said Sacha Baron Cohen as he accepted the prize, referring that the Globes currently has no black members!
Cohen poked further fun at the awards body as he was named best actor in a comedy or musical for the same film. – BBC
