The Boston Online Film Critics Honor Nomadland

The Boston Online Film Critics announced their picks for the best of 2020 today and Nomadland picked up another win.  I have a feeling that I’m going to soon get bored with Nomadland winning awards from the critics.  That’s not a knock on Nomadland as much as it’s just a lament for a more varied awards season.  Oh well!
