Film award

Chloe Zhao has won the Directors Guild of America (DGA) Award in the key category. This was announced on Saturday on the website of the award.

Zhao received the award in the Best Director of a Feature Film category for her work on "Nomadland". It tells the story of an unemployed woman who is forced to wander around the US. Emerald Fennell's "Promising Young Woman", Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari", David Fincher's "Mank" and Aaron Sorkin's "The Trial of the Chicago 7" also competed for the award.

In March, Zhao, who was born in China but lives and works in the US, won a Golden Globe Award for Best Director. In addition, "Nomadland" won a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture and Best Drama. The film has been nominated for an Oscar.

As announced on Saturday, Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw for their work on The Truffle Hunters won the award in the category for Best Documentary Director. The makers of "The Painter and the Thief," "My Octopus Teacher" and "Boys State" were also in the running for the Director's Guild Award. In addition, David France, director of the American film Welcome to Chechnya, was among the nominees.

Darius Marder was victorious in the category for novice directors. He directed "Sound of Metal". The Directors Guild of America Awards ceremony was held for the 73rd time. The winners traditionally receive a statuette in the shape of a director's chair. During the last decades, the winners of the main award of the US Directors Guild have, with very few exceptions, also won the Oscar for Best Director.
