Matt writes: History was made during last night's Oscar telecast when "Nomadland" filmmaker Chloé Zhao became the first Asian woman, the first woman of color and the second woman ever to win the Academy Award for Best Director. The film also won Best Picture and a third Best Actress Oscar for Frances McDormand, who became the second woman in history to achieve that feat following Katharine Hepburn.

Matt writes: Despite the COVID-19 pandemic preventing our writers from attending the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival in person this year, our Managing Editor Brian Tallerico is still screening all of the highlights remotely. Keep your eyes peeled each day for his latest dispatches from the festival, which kicked off September 10th and runs through Sunday, September 20th. A few of the hotly anticipated titles he's reviewed thus far are Francis Lee's "Ammonite," starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, Regina King's "One Night in Miami," starring Leslie Odom Jr., and Chloé Zhao's "Nomadland," starring Frances McDormand.
