Does the Chloe Zhao DGA win make ‘Nomadland’ unbeatable at the Oscars for Best Picture?

Does the Chloe Zhao DGA win make ‘Nomadland’ unbeatable at the Oscars for Best Picture?
Chloe Zhao won at the Directors Guild of America Awards on April 11 for her helming of “Nomadland.” The guild has a great track record of previewing the Best Director winner at the Academy Awards. Since aligning its awards with the academy, only eight of the DGA picks failed to pick up an Oscar bookend. That stat makes Zhao all but certain to become the second female helmer to prevail at the Academy Awards after Kathryn Bigelow.

Bigelow numbers among the 55 DGA winners for best director of the year who went on to claim bragging rights as the helmer of the Oscar winner for Best Picture. But we are just coming off two of those 17 years when there was a disconnect between the guild and the academy.

In 2020, Sam Mendes won his second Directors Guild Award for helming the WWI drama “1917” but the Oscar went to “Parasite” director Boon Jong Ho,

DGA Awards: Chloé Zhao Wins Top Film Prize For ‘Nomadland’; ‘Queen’s Gambit’, ‘Flight Attendant’, ‘Homeland’ Lead TV — The Complete List
History has been made at the 73rd annual DGA Awards. Nomadland director Chloé Zhao has won the marquee prize for Nomadland, marking the second time the DGA has given the guild’s top prize to a female director after Kathryn Bigelow for 2008’s The Hurt Locker.

Zhao, along with fellow DGA nominees David Fincher for Mank, Lee Isaac Chung for Minari and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman, also is nominated in the Best Directing Oscar category.

Zhao used her acceptance speech to thank and honor the work of each of her fellow nominees, beginning with Fennell. “Emerald, you are so brilliant, so daring, and in such control of your craft with a unique voice, I can’t wait to see what thought-provoking journey you’re going to take us on next.

10 Films That Keep the Holocaust Fresh in Our Memories (Guest Blog)

10 Films That Keep the Holocaust Fresh in Our Memories (Guest Blog)
The words most associated with it are “never forget.” But with the Holocaust’s disappearance from too many curriculums — some 60% of young Americans are said to either not know what it was, or they think there were “only” 2 million murdered — forget forgetting. Let’s get back to remembering, on April 8, specifically, we have Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The timing merges with our country’s disturbing divisions. Some of the rioters storming the Capitol sported messages like “Camp Auschwitz” and “six million weren’t enough.” And then there’s that QAnon thing about Jewish space lasers. Museums (such as Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation) and synagogues, of course, will be recalling those lost. The Shoah has now taken oral histories to a new level with its Dimensions in Testimony. Multiple cameras, 3D, and holograms allow visitors to press a button of choice and ask a survivor what daily life was like in a camp.

Best Movies Coming to Netflix in April 2021
When 2021 began, many movie lovers were hopeful April would be the month of the rebound. James Bond was scheduled to (finally) return at the beginning of the month, and Marvel’s Black Widow was waiting at just the end of it. This of course did not happen.

Nevertheless, for those looking for more bite-sized distractions over the usual binging blur on streaming services, there is still relief coming on Netflix. While all of the below movies are relatively recent, chances are you haven’t seen any of them in a long time, if at all. So sit back, relax, and find out the best options to Netflix and chill this April.

Insidious (2011)

As the movie that arguably ushered in the horror movie renaissance of the 2010s—or at least cemented the Blumhouse Productions formula—Insidious has become strangely overlooked. This is probably due to director James Wan and star

Just 3 years after making SAG Awards history, Frances McDormand can do it again

Just 3 years after making SAG Awards history, Frances McDormand can do it again
Three years ago, Frances McDormand became the first person to win lead actress twice at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, breaking the notorious category curse. Now she’s in the running again with “Nomadland” and a victory at Sunday’s pre-taped ceremony would make her the first woman and second person overall to take home three lead statuettes for film.

An eight-time nominee, McDormand nabbed her first lead actress SAG Award for “Fargo” (1996) and waited 21 years go add her second for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (2017). Daniel Day-Lewis is thus far the only performer with three lead SAG Awards, having prevailed in lead actor for “Gangs of New York” (2002), “There Will Be Blood” (2007) and “Lincoln” (2012). He’s actually never lost an individual SAG Awards race, a record that will remain intact unless he comes out of retirement.
