The actress of Minari, at 74, leaves one of the moments of the gala in her crossing with Brad Pitt and leaving Glenn Close without a statuette
There was no surprise, but there were at least a few drops of humor when the Oscars gala was already beginning to sink into the slumber of endless nominations. The Korean had to arrive Youn Yuh-jung, at 74, to put the comic note with his meeting with Brad Pitt.
The Oklahoma actor, who only his ID seems to say that he is 57 years old, was in charge of presenting the award to Best Supporting Actress where the Asian interpreter had all the ballots to reign leaving again at the gates to Glenn Close. And if that was what the polls showed, that is how reality certified it: award for veteran Youn Yuh-jung for Under threat.
The actress in a navy blue dress took the Union Central stage and did what anyone would have liked with Brad Pitt. With a voice still trembling, the phrase that was right at the moment came out of the South Korean’s mouth: “Sir, Pitt, nice to finally meet you.” The stalls could not do otherwise than accompany her with a laugh.
But that will not be the only one that an audience already delivered to the South Korean will give him. The second will come when Youn Yuh-jung acquitted everyone present for mispronouncing his Korean name. “I’ve heard it anyway, but tonight you are all forgiven “, affirm.
In his speech to collect the statuette there was also a moment to remember his four rivals in the category, especially for Glenn Close who for the eighth time came out of the Los Angeles de Vaco ceremony, equaling the negative record of Peter O’Toole.
Finally, Youn Yuh-jung wanted to have a memory for his children as well, the architects that he would finally embark on the adventure of Threatening and will take the statuette that accredits her as the best supporting actress. “They made me want to leave home to go to work, and, well, this is the result of Mom having worked so hard, “concluded the South Korean once again, cheered by the public.
Brad Pitt was waiting for her downstairs to accompany her to the back of the stage, once his two goals had been accomplished: to meet the actor and win the Oscar.
