To talk more about the movie "Minari" and Youn Yuh-jung, the first South Korean actress to be nominated in an acting category at the Academy Awards, we're joined by Jason Bechervaise, flim critic and professor of entertainment and arts management at Korea Soongsil Cyber University.
Great to have you with us.
Are you finding this year's Oscars different from previous years? What are some of the things that stand out from this year's nominations?
South Korean actress Youn Yuh-jung of "Minari" is on track to become the second Asian woman and the first Korean to win an acting prize in the Oscars. How do you see her chances of winning the best supporting actress in the Oscars?
Besides best supporting actress, the movie "Minari" has earned five other Oscar nominations. Which awards do you expect "Minari" to take home, and what significance would it hold?
As a long-time professor and film critic, what's your review of the movie "Minari"?
Korean film "Parasite" made history at the Oscars last year by winning best picture. Do you think the success of "Parasite" has played a role in "Minari's" oscar nominations?
Jason Bechervaise for us tonight. Thank you.
