2021 Golden Globe Nominees For Best Motion Picture – Drama
Sir Anthony Hopkins is nominated for his role as a man struggling to accept his daughter’s (fellow Golden Globe nominee Olivia Colman) help when he begins to suffer memory loss. French playwright Florian Zeller directs The Father, an adaptation of his own acclaimed play, which hits theaters Friday, February 26, but will be on VOD March 26.
Speaking of fathers, David Fincher honored his late father, Jack, by turning a screenplay he wrote in the 1990s into a film with spirit and look of a Golden Age production. Mank – the story of Citizen Kane’s lesser-known co-writer, Herman J. Mankiewicz (Gary Oldman) – is a Netflix original, available to stream since December 4. Stream Mank on Netflix here.
Director Chloé Zhao turned Jessica Bruder’s book about the rise of traveling jobseekers following the 2008 recession into a raw, intimate, gorgeously shot portrayal of personal resiliency in the face of widespread collapse. Frances McDormand gives a stunning performance, alongside actually “nomads” as themselves, in Nomadland, which hit Hulu on February 19. Stream Nomadland on Hulu here.
