 “Nomadland,” Chloé Zhao’s meditation on grief and the damaged American dream, won Academy Awards for best picture, director and actress at Sunday night’s surreal ceremony, a stage show broadcast on television about films mostly distributed on the internet. It was a sleepy event until the final minutes, when academy voters served up a dramatic twist ending: Anthony Hopkins, 83, won the best actor Oscar for “The Father,” beating out the late Chadwick Boseman (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”), who was the runaway favorite going into the night, having been lauded by film organizations and critics’ groups for months.  Frances McDormand was named best actress for “Nomadland,” the third time she has won the award. “Nomadland” gave Searchlight Pictures its fourth best-picture prize in eight years, an astounding run unrivaled by any other specialty film company. “We give this one to our wolf,” McDormand said as she held the best picture statuette, an apparent reference to Michael Wolf Snyder, a “Nomadland” sound mixer who took his own life in March. She then unleashed an unbridled wolf howl.

The book "National Security Mom: Why Going Soft Will Make America Strong" offers the basics of contemporary terrorism trends and national security policymaking from a parent's perspective. Written by Gina M. Bennett – a mom of five with 20 years experience in national security as a counterterrorism expert for the US Intelligence Community – this book demystifies the underworld of terrorism and offers a unique comparison of how the super-secret intelligence approach to securing our nation is surprisingly similar to how parents secure their homes and families.

“The Crown” won best TV drama and “Schitt’s Creek” nabbed best TV comedy at the 78th Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, providing moments of triumph during a broadcast that unspooled in the shadow of a global pandemic and amid a controversy that is roiling the cliquish organization behind the annual show. “Nomadland,” a low-budget drama about a woman traveling around the American West, scored a best motion picture drama prize, while making history for its director Chloé Zhao. She became only the second woman to win a best director prize, joining Barbra Streisand, who was recognized for directing “Yentl” in 1983.
