First of all, I have not been active because DIVA (My PC) is fucked! I am in the middle of purchasing parts to upgrade so I won’t be up and running until two weeks out! So these days, when I am desperate, I hit the cafes (didn’t even think they still existed!) but mostly I am on twitter and tumblr on my also old phone (also to be upgraded this weekend).
So yeah, do not worry, if you were ^_^. I am alive and kicking and trying not to die from not having a PC!!
Anyway, this being about Ahgassi, I just had to write about it! The 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards (AKA Korean Golden Globes) just happened and there was not one, or two, but THREE yuri movies that won during the ceremony!
These movies are listed above and as if making up for the shenanigans of the actual Golden Globes, in that they did not even bother to nominate The Handmaiden, my all time favourite movie ever took the night by winning the GRAND PRIZE! That’s right, every other movie ate Ahgassi’s dust!
Looks like Wonder Woman will be a tad bit late to the party because Justice has already been served!
I am so happy that I am not even going to try to think of how Kim Tae-ri did not win Best New Actress this time around after winning everything since The Handmaiden came out, nor the fact that Kim Min-hee did not take the Leading Actress prize! Then again, there would have been complaints I am sure since she is no stranger to winning Best Actress in these Korean Golden Globes! She has in fact won twice already, the first time being for yet another yuri movie – Hellcats AKA I Like It Hot!
Interestingly, and thus making me care even less is that fact that the person that stole Kim Tae-ri’s awards is actually in our next film – Our Love Story! Lee Sang-hee II won the prize for Best New Actress for her role as Yoon-joo in Our Love Story! So really, no reason to complain! Also The Handmaiden basically won the overall prize which you can take as it winning every category!
As for the third and final film, the movie that made me cry and sign in awe at the awesome story progression and surprising performances from such young leads, The World Of Us won Best Screenplay totally validating my fan-gasming over its brilliance or story telling!
See this the rest of the world? Get to it already! Japan, France, Thailand, everyone else, give us our yuri movies, good yuri movies, that have good endings! No more beating around the bush and getting cold feet…
See you in a few…
