(Los Angeles = Larose.VIP) Correspondent Mina Lim = Korean actor Steven Yeun won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor in the TV category for the Netflix drama ‘Angry People’ (original title BEEF).

The top award in the film category went to ‘Oppenheimer.’

◇ ‘Angry People’ Steven Yeun and others win this year’s fourth award… Korean advancement

At the 30th Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) held in Los Angeles (LA) on the 25th (local time), Steven Yeun was named the winner of the Best Actor Award in the TV Movie/Miniseries category.

With this award, Steven Yeun swept all four major American award ceremonies this year for Best Actor in a TV Miniseries category, following last month’s Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards, and Critics’ Choice Awards.

In particular, the Actors Guild Award has a special meaning for actors in that it recognizes their acting skills from fellow actors in Hollywood.

In his acceptance speech, Steven Yeun thanked his parents and then mentioned his acting coach, saying, “Every time I say, ‘You don’t understand. This seems very Korean,’ she says, ‘No, that’s something we all go through.’ “That was really important to me,” he emphasized.

Ally Wong, who played the female lead in ‘Angry People’ along with Steven Yeun, also received the Best Actress award in the same category.

‘Angry People’ is a work written and directed by Korean director Lee Seong-jin, and features many Korean actors, including Steven Yeun. It depicts how a conflict that started as a minor argument while driving escalated into an extreme fight.

This 10-episode drama was a hit right after it was released in April last year, ranking in the top 10 most watched shows on Netflix for five consecutive weeks.

In addition, in recognition of the completeness of the work and the acting skills of the actors, it swept eight awards, including Best Picture and Best Male and Female Lead Actors, at the Primetime Emmy Awards, which boast the most authority in the broadcasting industry, as well as three Golden Globe Awards and four Critics’ Choice Awards.

The SAG Awards are largely divided into film, TV, and stunt categories. In the TV category, it is divided into drama series and comedy series, and awards ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble’, which is equivalent to the best picture award, but this award is not allocated to the mini-series category.

Accordingly, ‘Angry People’ did not receive the ensemble award, but it took home both the male and female lead awards in that category, establishing itself as the best work in this category recognized by Hollywood actors this year.

At the awards ceremony that day, another Korean actress, Greta Lee, went on stage and handed the trophy to Steven Yeun.

Greta Lee received great attention in Hollywood, including being nominated for the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Actress this year for Korean-American director Celine Song’s film ‘Fast Lives’, but was not nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award.

However, the Screen Actors Guild invited Greta Lee to present the award, confirming that her performance this year was outstanding.

Also, the scene where Greta Lee handed Steven Yeun the trophy and hugged him showed the heightened status of Korean actors in Hollywood.

In addition, at the awards ceremony on this day, a video reminiscing and commemorating the performances of Hollywood actors who passed away this year attracted attention by including the late Lee Sun-kyun.

As the lead actor in ‘Parasite’, he left a big mark on Hollywood by receiving the Ensemble Award along with other actors at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

◇ ‘Oppenheimer’ dominates this year’s film awards… Chances of winning the Oscar for Best Picture increase

In the film category, ‘Oppenheimer’ won three awards, including the top award, ‘Outstanding Performance by a Cast’ (Ensemble Award), Best Actor (Cillian Murphy), and Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.).

This film, directed by Christopher Nolan, tells the story of Robert Oppenheimer, a physicist who led the development of the atomic bomb during World War II.

‘Oppenheimer’ previously won the Golden Globe Best Picture and Best Director, the Critics’ Choice Best Picture and Best Director, and the Directors Guild of America (DGA) Best Director, and swept the top awards at major American film awards this year, including the SAG Awards.

Accordingly, the possibility of winning Best Picture or Best Director at the Academy Awards (Oscar Awards) to be held on March 10 has increased.

Members of the Screen Actors Guild account for a large portion of the Academy Award voting panel, so the SAG Awards are evaluated as a ‘preview of the Oscars.’

‘Barbie’ was nominated in four categories at this awards ceremony, but only received no results.

‘Barbie’ was the highest-grossing film in Hollywood this year, but was pushed out by ‘Oppenheimer’ at several awards ceremonies and repeatedly missed out on the top prize.

‘Barbie’ was nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards, but female director Greta Gerwig was not nominated for Best Director, sparking controversy over gender discrimination at the Academy Awards.

On this day, Lily Gladstone of ‘Flower Killing Moon’ beat Margot Robbie of ‘Barbie’ to win the Best Actress award in the film category. Gladstone became the first Native American actor to win Best Actress at the awards ceremony.

The Best Supporting Actress Award was won by Devine Joy Randolph of ‘Barton Academy’ (original title ‘The Holdovers’).

Barbra Streisand, who has worked as a singer, actress, film director, and producer, received a Lifetime Achievement Award.

On this day, the awards ceremony was broadcast live for the first time through the video streaming platform Netflix.

The Associated Press said, “There was a big change in the long-standing tradition of these award ceremonies,” and “there were no advertisements, and profanity was allowed.”
