Chinese-born Zhao is the second woman to win the Academy Award for senior director.
Chinese-born filmmaker Chloe Zhao, who also spoke about the occupants of the economic boom boom in the United States Nomadland, has become the first Asian woman and the second woman to win a director at the Academy Awards on Sunday.
It was Zhao’s first Oscar, 39, who lived a nomadic life alongside actor Frances McDormand to tell older Americans who travel from work to work to try out for money.
Zhao was born in China and lived in Beijing until the age of 14, when he attended a boarding school in London. He later moved to Los Angeles where he graduated from high school and went to film school in New York.
While there was excitement in China over Zhao’s election, the turmoil erupted when internet users posted their old posts claiming that the video director had insulted China. The event will not be announced in China this year, or in Hong Kong – a short list of regional exhibitions for 2019 in preparation for the awards.
Only two women have won the top director at the Academy Awards for 93 years. Kathryn Bigelow received the award in 2010 for chasing The Hurt Locker.
Zhao competed this year against Emerald Fennel, the British executive for Promising Young Woman, writes the first time two women were selected from the group immediately.
He took part in the Oscars as the leading winner after receiving trophies from the Directors Guild of America, a Gold Globes, BAFTA, and several anti-film groups.
British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who became world-famous in the 2017 Black comedy horror Get Out, won the best actor as former Black Panther representative Fred Hampton in the play, Judas and the Black Messiah.
Kaluuya, 32, became the Academy Award winner after winning the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and British BAFTA awards.
Born in London to Ugandan parents, Kaluya has described himself as a working child who first retired from entertainment as a young actor and British TV presenter, Skopa.
Hampton, a black revolutionary, was shot dead by Chicago police in 1969 at the age of 21.
Kaluya paid homage to him by holding Oscar on stage.
“What kind of person is he,” said Kaluuya. “We are blessed to have lived the life they have lived. Thank you so much for your life. ”
