Youn Yuh-jung wins best supporting actress Academy Award

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Youn Yuh-jung, the feisty grandmother in “Minari,” has won the best supporting actress award at the Oscars. She’s the second Asian actress to win in the category, more than six decades after Japanese-born Miyoshi Umeki earned the trophy for 1957’s “Sayonara.” The first Korean woman to be nominated for an Oscar, Youn’s victory comes one year after academy voters snubbed the South Korean cast of best picture winner “Parasite.” Youn plays Soon-ja, a card-playing grandmom with a knack for swearing, who’s moved from Korea to join her daughter and son-in-law in his seemingly quixotic quest to trade dispiriting work in California for farming in Arkansas.
