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.
