Just over a year ago, Lee Isaac Chung’s moving family drama Minari premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. Dramatic Competition, where it was awarded the U.S. Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award. This evening, the film’s journey continued at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday evening, where it took home Best Film, Foreign Language. And from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Daniel Kaluuya won Best Supporting Actor in a Film for his role as Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah.
We also want to congratulate Sundance Institute alum Chloé Zhao on winning Best Director, Motion Picture for her latest film, Nomadland. Zhao—who took part in our 2012 Screenwriters and Directors Labs with her 2015 Festival film Songs My Brother Taught Me, and also brought The Rider to the 2018 Festival—is the second woman in Golden Globes history to take home the honor (the first being Barbra Streisand for her 1983 feature Yentl). Catch Nomadland streaming on Hulu now; check out Judas and the Black Messiah on HBO Max; and rent Minari on the streaming platform of your choice.
