If you haven't heard, "Nomadland" won best picture at the 2021 Academy Awards on Sunday. If you haven't seen it, you're in luck. There are several ways to watch the film starring Francis McDormand, David Strathairn, and a supporting cast of real-life nomads.
The film premiered in theaters and on Hulu simultaneously on Feb. 19, and it's still available to watch for free (with a subscription, but no added cost) on Hulu. It's also currently available to stream for a rental fee on YouTube, Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, and Vudu.
Directed by Chloé Zhao "Nomadland" is based on the book "Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century." The story follows a woman named Fern (McDormand) who loses her job during the recession and packs up a few important possessions and hits the road in her van. She finds work doing odd jobs and meets fellow nomads along the way who play themselves in the film, including Bob Wells of the popular YouTube channel CheapRVliving.
"Nomadland" won big at the Oscars where Zhao won best director, making her the first woman of color and second woman to win the Oscar for best director. The film also won best picture, and McDormand took home her third Oscar for best actress.
