Chinese director Chloe Zhao has made history as the first Asian woman and the second female director to win for Best Director at the Golden Globes for the drama “Nomadland” on Sunday.
Her historic 78th Annual Golden Globes Awards win was celebrated globally, including in China, where many social media users praised the 38-year-old director for her work, according to BBC.
Editor’s Note: This article has been updated to correctly report that Zhao is a Chinese filmmaker, not an Asian American.
Chloe Zhao has made history as the first Chinese female director to land a nomination at the Golden Globes for her 2020 film “Nomadland.”
Although “Minari” has received praise from critics, the Golden Globes placed the film under the foreign-language category due to a rule created by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
According to the HFPA, at least 50% of a film’s main language must be English for it to be placed under two of the most competitive categories at the Golden Globes, Entertainment Weekly explains.
“Minari,” an A24 drama directed by Lee Isaac Chung, has been categorized as a foreign language film for the 78th annual Golden Globe Awards in February, and social media is accusing the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of racism.
The HFPA has kept “Minari,” which won awards following screenings at the Sundance and Middleburg film festivals, from being nominated for the Best Picture categories, a similar decision faced by Lulu Wang’s “The Farewell” last year.
Early talks are underway as Bong Joon Ho’s hit movie “Parasite” heads to HBO as a limited series.
