American Korean drama film Minari has got nominated for or six awards at the 2021 British Academy Film Awards.
It is nominated for “Film Not in The English Language,” “Best Film Music,” “Best Casting,” and “Best Direction.” Yuh-Jung Youn is nominated for “Best Supporting Actress”
while 8-year-old Alan S. Kim is nominated for “Best Supporting Actor.”
Kim recently won the award for “Best Young Actor or Actress” at the 2021 Critics Choice Awards.
The Handmaiden was the first Korean film to both be nominated and to win a BAFTA award for “Best Foreign Language Film.”
Last year, in 2020, Parasite won “Best Foreign Language Film” and “Best Original Screenplay” out of its four nominations.
This year, it is for the first time that any Korean actors have been nominated for a BAFTA award. Since Korean films have done well the few times they’ve received nominations, we’re believing to see Minari pick up a few wins.
