Chloe Zhao’s second Nomadland trailer offers a closer look at Frances McDormand’s celebrated performance, which could yield a third Oscar.
The second trailer of Nomadland highlights the lead performance of star Frances McDormand that could earn her a record third Oscar. Nomadland is written and directed by Chloé Zhao and stars McDormand as Fern, who travels the American West living in his truck after losing everything in the Great Recession. It has been a critical favorite on the festival circuit since its premiere at the Venice Film Festival last September and recently garnered four Golden Globe nominations, including Best Director for Zhao and Best Actress for McDormand.
Searchlight Pictures bets on the awards with its second Nomadland trailer, which opens with the film’s overwhelming number of festival laurels covering the screen. The brooding shots of McDormand and other nomads who live off western landscapes draw the film’s meditative tone and recall similar classics like The grapes of wrath.

Considering the film’s feverish hype, McDormand appears to be on track for an Oscar nomination that could turn out to be his third win, a milestone that only Ingrid Bergman, Meryl Streep and four-time winner Katharine Hepburn have achieved. McDormand’s performances have received a total of five Oscar nominations, winning by Fargo in 1996 and Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri in 2017. Nomadland it’s just one of three high-profile movies he’s on his schedule right now, the other two are by Wes Anderson The French office and her husband Joel Cohen Macbeth’s tragedy. A third victory would certainly generate even more excitement around the films that will be released later this year, but audiences can make their own assessment when Nomadland hits theaters and on Hulu on February 19.
