This flick of Chloe Zhao wins big at TFF

Many films are performing pretty well at the Toronto Film festival that was organized recently. Chloe Zhao's Nomadland bagged the top People's Choice honor on Sunday at the pandemic-era Toronto Film Festival, which wrapped up on Saturday. The Frances McDormand-starrer was named the top audience prize winner in Toronto, which is often a barometer of future Academy Award nominations. The first runner-up for the top audience prize was Regina King's One Night in Miami, while the second runner-up was Tracey Deer's Beans.

Searchlight is set to release Nomadland, Zhao's look at America's van-dwelling community and her follow-up to The Rider, on Dec. 4. McDormand plays the role of a widow from a collapsed Nevada mining town who finds new life on the road in a drama based on Jessica Bruder's 2017 nonfiction book, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century. Nomadland, while making a debut in competition at Venice, received a gala screening in Toronto and a Telluride-supported U.S. premiere at drive-in screenings in Los Angeles.

The People's Choice award for best documentary went to Canadian director Michelle Latimer's Inconvenient Indian, while the top audience prize for best Midnight Madness sidebar title went to Roseanne Liang's Shadow in the Cloud. This year's audience winners will have an asterisk beside the honors as TIFF had a slimmed-down lineup of 50 titles, against 333 last year, Hollywood studios were mostly absent and the Oscars have been delayed until April 2021.
