“Nomadland” has wandered straight into the Academy Award for best picture.

It’s an unprecedented triumph in the award show’s most prestigious category for a film with a woman as both director and lead.

It’s just the second film directed by a woman to win a best picture Oscar. The first was the Kathryn Bigelow-directed “The Hurt Locker” in 2009.

It beat out fellow nominees “Judas and the Black Messiah,” “Minari,” “Sound of Metal,” “The Father,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” “Mank” and “Promising Young Woman.”

Meanwhile, McDormand nabbed another Best Actress Oscar thanks to her performance in the movie.

It’s the second best actress Oscar for McDormand, who also won in 2018 for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” That Oscar statuette was stolen at the post-show Governors Ball, though it was recovered before the night was over.

She plays a woman who leaves her small town to join a group of wanderers in the American West.
