Yes. The drama ‘Squid Game’ was nominated for a number of major categories including Best Picture at the ‘Emmy’ awards ceremony, which is called the Academy Award of the American broadcasting industry.
The American Academy of Television Arts and Sciences nominated eight films, including Squid Game, as nominees for Best Picture in the Drama category at the 74th Emmy Awards.
“Ozark,” “Severance,” “Squid Game”
The Squid Game competed for the award along with the American HBO dramas ‘Succession’ and ‘Stranger Things’, which are considered the biggest competitors.
It is the first time in the history of the Emmy Awards that a non-English-speaking film has been nominated, so even the nomination itself has set a new record.
Squid Game broke the custom of awarding awards only to dramas produced in English.
A lot of actors, including the lead Lee Jung-jae, were also nominated?
From the lead role to the minor role, the actors who appeared were also included in the nominations for the acting award.
Actor Lee Jung-jae, who plays the main character ‘Sung Ki-hoon’, was nominated for Best Actor in a Drama category along with prominent actors such as Bryan Cox in ‘Succession’ and Bob Odenkirk in ‘Better Call Saul’.
Park Hae-soo, who played ‘Cho Sang-woo’, and Oh Young-soo, who played ‘Oil Man’, were nominated for the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama category and competed in good faith. Lee Yoo-mi was nominated for the Best Actress Award.
Squid Game, which was nominated in 14 categories, including director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who was nominated for Best Original Screenplay and Best Director, also set the record for the most nominations for a foreign language drama.
The 74th Emmy Awards ceremony will be held on September 12.
Squid Game has previously won awards at major American awards ceremonies, such as the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, and Actors Guild Awards, which can be said to be a barometer of the possibility of winning the Emmy Awards, so expectations are high.
This time, let’s move on to the news about the next-generation American space telescope, James Webb.
Yesterday, photos taken by this telescope were released in a teaser form, but additional observation photos were released?
Yes. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released additional high-definition images of the galaxy taken by the James Webb Telescope, which NASA started observing.
One of the largest and brightest nebulae in the night sky, the Carina Nebula, located 7,600 light-years from Earth, clearly captures the beauty of the cosmic cliffs and surrounding glowing baby stars.
“We’re seeing bubbles and holes and ejection from new stars. You can even see galaxies hiding behind here.”
They also released a photo of ‘Stephan’s Quintet’, which shows the Milky Way group in the constellation Pegasus, 290 million light-years away.
It was introduced as a scene where galaxies are bound to each other by gravity and repeatedly move closer and further away, as if dancing, but colliding with each other.
A photograph of the ‘South Ring Nebula’ has also been released, showing a gas cloud expanding around a dying star.
It is an explanation that the gas and cosmic dust emitted by the stars were captured in detail.
The space photos released by NASA over two days are high-resolution photos of the farthest and deepest space ever taken by mankind.
Foreign media and scientific circles praised it, saying, “The way we look at the universe will completely change.”
Meanwhile, NASA said the telescope has also confirmed for the first time water vapor in the form of water on an exoplanet 1,150 light-years from Earth.
So far, it has been delivered from Washington.
