‘Nomadland’ Scores With the Toronto Film Critics Association

The Toronto Film Critics Association have announced their winners today, with Nomadland almost sweeping its four major categories. Chloé Zhao’s beloved feature scored the wins for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Actress (Frances McDormand), but was runner-up in the Best Screenplay category, where Minari took the win. 

Elsewhere, the critics group marks the first win for Daniel Kaluuya this year, as he won the Best Supporting Actor trophy for his work in the late-breaking contender Judas and the Black Messiah. Perhaps this could be the first sign of Kaluuya swooping in to start taking over this category, having picked up nominations from the Golden Globes and SAG Awards.
