On A Roll: BAFTA Film Awards Dubs ‘Minari’ With 6 Nominations
Although released back in January of 2020, "Minari" still keeps getting the clout it deserves more than a year later.
"Minari," an American drama film directed by Lee Isaac Chung, an American-born South Korean director, may not technically be classified under the "K-Movie" genre, but it is a South Korean movie, through and through. Chung directed this movie with his heart, imbuing his original roots, to share to viewers his family's journey from South Korea to the United States.
Furthermore, the film stars acting veterans both from South Korea and America, with the actors being Han Ye-ri, Youn Yuh-jung, Steven Yeun, Alan Kim, Noel Kate Cho, and Will Patton. Directly, "Minari" is near and dear to Chung as the film gravitates towards the experiences his family had to go through. Similarly to Chung's life story, "Miami" is about a family of South Korean immigrants who chases the "American Dream" in the 1980s.
Due to the rawness and heart-felt way "Minari was directed," an amazing film was born, and it spawned multiple accolades, even to this day.
Recently, the BAFTA Film Awards, also known as the EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts, released its nominees for the 2021 awards. With that, "Minari" was nominated for six categories, giving the film the ability to bag them all.
"Minari," alongside its staff, was nominated with the following categories: Best Director (Lee Isaac Chung), Best Film Not in the English Language, Best Supporting Actress (Youn Yuh Jung), Best Supporting Actor (Alan Kim), Best Original Score (Emile Mosseri), and lastly Best Casting (Julia Kim). As mentioned before, a total of 6 nominations were accounted for in the film.
The 74th BAFTA Film Awards will happen approximately a month from now on the 11th of April. The event will be broadcasted virtually from the Royal Albert Hall in London.
