    Youn Yuh-jung won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in "Minari" from the Boston Society of Film Critics last week.

    Directed by Korean-American director Lee Isaac Chung, the film tells his autobiographical story of a Korean family who move to the U.S. in the 1980s and their struggles to settle in a small town in Arkansas. Youn plays the grandmother in the family.

    It is Youn's second gong for the role, after winning the Best Supporting Actress honor at the Sunset Film Circle Awards earlier this month.

    Hollywood trade dailies like The Hollywood Reporter and IndieWire have touted Youn as a possible frontrunner among supporting role nominees at next year's Academy Awards, which have been delayed until late April due to the coronavirus pandemic.
