In case you haven't seen it yet (what are you waiting for?!), you should know that Nomadland has been sweeping this awards season because it's THAT good.
If you HAVE seen the movie, then you're probably familiar with Fern and her van — lovingly called, "Vanguard." And in this super cute video, Frances McDormand (Fern) gives us a little tour of Vanguard:
First, McDormand gives us a look at the clever, compact design required in a converted van.
And then she talks about some of the personal elements from her own life she brought to the movie, like her crafting...
...and a set of vintage dishes McDormand's real-life father gave to her that was used as part of the film's storyline.
The two-time Academy Award winning actor also goes on to talk about the importance of Vanguard, and the significance of the name, to the film's whole production team.
Basically, the whole thing is super sweet and Frances McDormand continues to be a national treasure.
