It’s a great way to start the year for veteran actor Oh Young-Soo, who recently bagged an accolade at the 79th Golden Globe Awards.
The actor won Best Supporting Actor in the television series category for his role as Player 001 in Netflix’s hit show, “Squid Game”, besting contenders such as Brett Goldstein (“Ted Lasso”), Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass (“The Morning Show”), as well as fan favourite, Kieran Culkin (“Succession”).
Releasing a statement via Netflix, Oh stated, “It’s no longer “us within the world”, but “the world within us”… I wish you all a beautiful life.”
It is noted that his co-star and lead actor Lee Jung-Jae was also nominated in the Best Actor in a Television Series category, but lost the title to “Succession” star, Jeremy Strong. Meanwhile, “Squid Game” lost the Best Television Series drama category to HBO’s “Succession”.
Oh and Lee, as well as other cast members and director of “Squid Game” did not attend the ceremony. The award winners were announced in a low-key fashion following boycott against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) over the corruption and racism scandal.
