Note
  1. ^ Certain award groups do not simply award one winner. They recognize several different recipients, have runners-up and have third place. Since this is a specific recognition and is different from losing an award, runner-up mentions are considered wins in this award tally. For simplification and to avoid errors, each award in this list has been presumed to have had a prior nomination.

Nomadland garnered acclaim, becoming the third-highest rated of 2020 on Metacritic,[1] which found it to be the most frequently ranked by critics and publications as one of the best films of 2020. It premiered on September 11, 2020, at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Golden Lion, and also won the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was named one of the ten best films of 2020 by the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute, and received four nominations at the 78th Golden Globe Awards, winning Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director; in winning the latter award, Zhao became the second woman and the first Asian woman to do so.[2]
