‘Nomadland’ Lands on Hulu

Nomadland, nominated in four major Golden Globe categories, will debut on Hulu and in theaters this Friday, February 19.

Nomadland is a road trip story about a woman, unemployed after her home town factory shuts down, who sells all her possessions, buys a van and starts traveling through the western U.S. in search of a livelihood. The film, based on a 2017 non-fiction book, Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder, includes several real-life American nomads in its cast.

Producer Frances McDormand has received a Golden Globe nomination for her lead performance, the movie was nominated as best drama film, and Chloé Zhao received nominations for both her directing and screenplay.

The Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Tina Fay and Amy Poehler for the fourth time after a six-year absence, will take place Sunday, February 28, at 8 pm ET on NBC.

In addition to Nomadland, Hulu is home to a Golden Globe nominee for best comedic film, Palm Springs, for which Andy Samberg also received a best actor nomination. It’s a Groundhog Day-type romcom fantasy, with a couple this time reliving their friends’ wedding day over and over and over.

Hulu offers three subscription plans: $5.99 a month with ads; $11.99/month for a mostly commercial-free experience; and $54.99 monthly for Hulu + Live TV, which includes 60 channels and unlimited access to Hulu’s ad-supported content.  The first two options offer a one-month free trial. Hulu + Live TV offers one week of free streaming.

You can also get Hulu in a bundle with Disney+ and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month, but no free trial.
