We're thrilled that one of our favorite films of the year had a big night at the 93rd Academy Awards. Nomadland took home Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress honors, Frances McDormand's third Oscar. 

It's a deep, complex look at what happens when the American Dream turns into a nightmare, as jobs disappear and homes are lost. The protagonist buys a van and hits the road, plugging into the community of nomads living in vehicles. So much happens along the way, both good and bad. Kind of like life. 

If you haven't seen it yet, please watch it on Hulu.
