  • 3 years ago
On Monday morning after triumphing at this year's Oscars, Chloé Zhao sat down with Variety to discuss the story behind "Nomadland" and what's next for her career. Zhao landed the trophy for best director and also received the top prize for picture. She’s only the second woman to win an Oscar for director — after Kathryn Bigelow (for 2009’s “The Hurt Locker”) — and Zhao, who was born in Beijing, is the first woman of color to receive the prize.
