Veteran actor O Yeong-su is the first South Korean to win Best TV Supporting Actor at the 74th Golden Globes Awards for his role in Netflix’s Squid Game (2021).
The 77-year-old actor beat Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass of The Morning Show, Kieran Culkin of Succession, and Brett Goldstein of Ted Lasso to clinch the award.
O played the elderly participant, no. 1, a.k.a Oh Il-nam, who is secretly behind the deadly contest, in which heavily debt-ridden people attempt to win 45.6 billion won (US$37.9 million) in prize money.
Aside from O, the TV series itself was also nominated for Best TelevisionSeries (Drama). Meanwhile, lead actor Lee Jung-jae had been nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series (Drama) award.
This year’s Golden Globes was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles with no audience and no TV broadcast after a Hollywood boycott for its alleged lack of diversity. However, the awarding ceremony was streamed LIVE on Golden Globes’ official homepage and social media accounts. – WhatALife.ph
