Nomadland named Best Picture of 2020 by Seattle Film Critics Society

SEATTLE (Feb. 15, 2021) - The Seattle Film Critics Society (SFCS) announced the winners in 20 categories for [its 2020 awards today].

Chloé Zhao's Nomadland proved the big winner this year, landing five awards, including Best Picture of the Year. The film, documenting one woman's turn to a modern-day nomadic lifestyle following the 2008 economic recession, also earned Zhao the Best Director award and a win for Best Film Editing. Frances McDormand was named Best Actress in a Leading Role, while Joshua James Richards' work behind the camera secured a win for Best Cinematography.

"As we continue to encounter challenges with COVID-19, movies have become more accessible to audiences. A movie like Nomadland is as beautiful and emotionally resonant as any film in recent memory," said SFCS President Erik Samdahl. "Nomadland highlights how, though we may be more physically apart from one another, a sense of community and knowing we are not alone in the world can bring us all together."

Lee Isaac Chung's Minari, a semiautobiographical drama about a Korean-American family's pursuit of "The American Dream" in 1980s Arkansas, led all films with eight nominations, winning three SFCS awards: Best Film Not in the English Language, and Best Youth Performance, honoring 7-year-old Alan Kim's role as David, the family's youngest child often tasked with dealing with his eccentric grandmother, played by Best Supporting Actress recipient Yuh-jung Youn.

Riz Ahmed was named Best Actor for his powerful work as Ruben in Sound of Metal, portraying a punk rock drummer forced to deal with the rapid onset of hearing loss and changes in his life he seemingly cannot control.

Daniel Kaluuya's blistering work as civil rights activist Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah earned him the Best Supporting Actor prize.

Emerald Fennell's Promising Young Woman earned the first-time writer-director the Best Screenplay award. Christopher Nolan's Tenet earned two awards for Best Action Choreography and Best Visual Effects.

Jon Bois' unique and innovative 220-minute YouTube documentary, The History of the Seattle Mariners: Supercut Edition, won the Best Documentary Feature prize. Bois's collaboration with writer and producer Adam Rubenstein received wide acclaim from sports and non-sports fans alike.

Other winners include: Wolfwalkers, which won Best Animated Feature; Soul for Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste's genre-bending original score; Da 5 Bloods for Best Ensemble Cast; Mank for Best Production Design; and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom for Best Costume Design.

The Villain of the Year was awarded to the title character in The Invisible Man, portrayed (in human form) by Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

After formation in the fall of 2016, The Seattle Film Critics Society officially became a nonprofit organization in 2017, with a membership now consisting of 31 film critics, representing print, broadcast, podcasting, and online film criticism. This year's awards are the fifth to be held under the banner of the SFCS, honoring the best films and performances of the year.
