Chloé Zhao is 2nd woman to win best director prize at Globes

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chloé Zhao became the second woman to win best director at the Golden Globes in a year in which three women were nominated for the first time in the category. Zhao was honored for her work on “Nomadland,” about people who take to the road and move from place to place seeking work for usually low wages. It stars two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand and includes nonprofessional actors. “Nomadland” also won best motion picture drama on Sunday night. Zhao is a leading Oscar contender. She joins Barbra Streisand, who won in 1984 for “Yentl,” as the only women to win directing honors at the Globes.
