The drama “Nomadland”, directed by Chloe Zhao, won the first prize for the best motion picture and director. It is based on the popular science book by journalist Jessica Bruder. The film stars Frances McDormand as a woman living as a nomad across America after the recent layoffs at a plant she used to work at. However, this is not the only disappointment as before long her husband dies. The main character loses everything that matters in her life, and so she decides to set off on a journey in her van. The vehicle turns into a house and like-minded nomads constantly in search of seasonal work and without a roof over their heads become a new family. The movie is worth watching indeed as it also has won the Audience Award. This is the first time in history that two prestigious awards went to one film.
The comedy “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” won two awards for the best motion picture among comedies or musicals and the best performance by an actor thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen. Although, The Golden Globe-nominated flick is not available on most streaming services. In the center of the storyline is an ignorant yet fearless Kazakhstani journalist Borat Sagdiyev, who returns from Kazakhstan to America, and this time he reveals many more facts about the American culture, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the political elections.
Pixar’s jazz-inspired “Soul” was rewarded as the best-animated feature. The protagonist of the story is a middle-school band teacher in New York who has lost his zest for life. Even though his life has not quite gone the way he expected, the musician has a true passion for jazz. After a successful gig at the club, he suddenly gets into an accident that separates his soul from his body, and so he finds himself trapped somewhere in a limbo-world. To find his way back home, Joe Gardener must enlist help from the lost souls. While traveling and helping others to find their spark of life, he soon realizes what it takes to live it up. The movie sweeps you up on waves of glorious rhythms thanks to Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon Batiste who deserved the best original score at the Golden Globe Awards, brilliant visuals, and unforgettable characters. On the whole, the movie makes you laugh and cry while contemplating, and so we heal and reveal our souls.

It is a classic immigrant story with specific and unique details of an ordinary Korean American family living in a rural area and working as chicken sexers. However, the eternal questions of their real calling and destiny keep drifting in the heads and hearts of the main characters, and so they head for their American dream to start a farm in Arkansas. Yet it is always easier said than done. The family faces various challenges like cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster. Have they finally found their place in the world?
Now let us check out what is on TV that is worth binge-watching?
The drama “The Crown” earned its statuettes for the best television series, best performance by actress Emma Corrin and actor Josh O’Connor, and best supporting role by Gillian Anderson. This is a story about the political battles and love affairs during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II and the events that influenced the course of history in the second half of the 20th century. Even though some aspects of the show are not entirely accurate, according to historians, the storyline still immerses into the atmosphere and events of that time. It might evoke mixed feelings, even cause some scandals, but there is nothing like Diana. The face that launched a thousand tabloid stories — and books and documentaries and Instagram feeds — is taking center stage in the newest season of the Netflix series.
The best television series in the category of musical or comedy became “Schitt’s Creek”, a Canadian television sitcom about the wealthy Rose family who lost all their property and belongings after a massive embezzlement scandal. All in all, the comedy-series was nominated for 15 Emmys and swept all other Sunday’s categories. It also earned the title of the best performance by an actress in a television series, musical, or comedy thanks to Catherine O’Hara.
The American drama miniseries “The Queen’s Gambit” gained a reputation for the best-limited series, anthology series, or a motion picture made for television and the best performance by actress Anya Taylor-Joy. The story takes place in one of the orphanages in the 1950s. The young girl discovers an amazing talent for chess and works her way to the top while struggling with her addiction. By the end of 2020, this hit drama has become officially Netflix’s most-watched scripted limited series to date. It ranked in Netflix’s top 10 in 92 countries and reached number one in 63.
