‘Minari’ scoops 10 nominations for 26th Critics' Choice Awards
Director Lee Isaac Chung’s 2020 film “Minari” received 10 nominations for the 26th Critics’ Choice Awards, the Critics Choice Association announced on Tuesday.
“Minari” was nominated for Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Young Actor/Actress, Best Acting Ensemble, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Foreign Language Film and Best Score. Actors Steven Yeun and Youn Yuh-jung will compete for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.
“Minari” followed director David Fincher’s “Mank” (2020), which was nominated in 12 categories, as the most nominated film at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards. The announcement comes as a stark contrast to the Golden Globe Awards where “Minari” was only nominated for best foreign-language film.
The awards ceremony will take place on March 7.
“Minari” tells the story of a Korean-American family trying to settle in 1980s rural Arkansas and is based on the director’s personal life.
The film has won more than 60 accolades so far, including three nominations for this April’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
