2021 Blue Dragon Film Award Nominations Led by Leads and Films Escape From Mogadishu, The Book of Fish, and Space Sweepers

The nominations are out for the 2021 year end Blue Dragon Film Awards, which only fetes the big screen works and remains the most prestigious of the cinematic only prizes in South Korea. This year the nominations are a mix of young talented stars and the usual established lauded veterans. Starting with Best Actor, the nominations are Kim Yoon Seok and Jo In Sung for Escape from Mogadishu, Song Joong Ki in Space Sweepers, and Sol Kyung Gu and Byun Yo Han for The Book of Fish. On the ladies side, Best Actress noms went to Kim Hye Soo for The Day I Died, Moon So Ri in Three Sisters, Yoona for Miracle, Jeon Yeo Bin in Night in Paradise, and Jeon Jong Seo as the villain in Call. Many of those movies are name the Best Film nomination which went to Escape from Mogadishu, The Book of Fish, Space Sweepers, The Day I Died, and thriller Hostage: Missing Celebrity. In terms of who I think will win, I don’t know if the multiple leads from the same film will cancel each other out in the Best Actor category, and I feel like Best Actress is Jeon Jong Seo’s to lose based on the buzz and awards sweeping that she’s been collecting for Call.
