For Winning Best Actress and Best Female New Comer of the Year!
Like, I don’t mean to brag but I so saw that coming!
Kim Min-hee was the one who won Best Actress and Tae-ri Best New Comer, in case anyone was remotely confused.
Sadly, Park Chan-wook couldn’t join them in winnings as best Director (That went to the director of The Wailing). The Handmaiden already snabbed the Cannes Prize for Technical Design (A first in its category I hear) and I am pretty sure the Music Score will win something too.
Could the movie win Best Movie sometime this year or next? I am sure it will, even though Park Chan-wook not taking Best Director is kind of discouraging. But really, what we have got is cause for much celebration! An R rated movie taking awards with both our lead Ladies winning is nothing to sneeze at!!
I haven’t felt this great since the 2008 CBS Drama awards when Moon Geun-young and Moon Chae-won shocked the world by winning Best Couple for their roles as Yun-bok and Jeong-hyang in my favourite drama of all time – Painter of The Wind!
Now then, to wait for the Director’s Cut, that should be out by the end of today, if all goes according to plan! Not that I am ready for it. I still can’t handle the ‘normal’ version. There is no way I can handle the Director’s Cut!
Any way, night!
