Youn Yuh-jung won the award for Best Supporting Actress at BAFTAs Sunday for role in Lee Isaac Chung’s Threatening, Vulture reports, and thanked the British Academy as well:

Thank you very much for this award. Every prize is meaningful, but this one, in particular [to be] recognized by the British, known as very snobbish people, and they approve of me as a good actor. So I am very, very privileged and happy.

Taloaned, legendary and above all correct. [“We simply have stan” voice] We simply you understand, etc.

In a follow-up interview with Variety, Youn noted that his assessment of the British “comes from personal experience»:

I have visited Britain many times, and I got a scholarship in a Cambridge college 10 years ago as an actor. In one way or another, it was very snobbish, but not bad … You have a long history and then you have your pride. As an Asian woman, I felt these people were very snobbish, that’s my honest feeling.

In other BAFTA news, Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland was the big winner of the evening, winning the best film, the best Director, Best Actress (for Frances McDormand), and Best photography, by Deadline. Emeraude Fennell Promising young woman also hung two statues, including the original best screenplay.
