Walt Disney Co. has rescheduled the release of best-picture contender “Nomadland” for Feb. 19, giving the pandemic more time to subside before the drama’s debut while keeping it eligible for Oscar awards.
The film, which has been the top pick for best picture on forecasting site GoldDerby.com, was originally scheduled to hit theaters Dec. 4. The new date is a little more than a week before the Oscar deadline, which was pushed back because of the havoc Covid-19 has wreaked on Hollywood scheduling.
“Nomadland” stars Frances McDormand as a woman who embarks on a journey across the Western U.S. after losing everything during the Great Recession. McDormand is also a contender for best actress, according to GoldDerby.
