Squid Game achieved another feat as Oh Young Soo became the first Korean actor to win a major award at the Golden Globes.

On January 9th, the 79th Golden Globe Awards took place in Beverly Hills, California. On this day, Squid Game star Oh Young Soo took home the trophy for Best Supporting Actor, beating out Billy Crudup and Mark Duplass in The Morning Show, Kieran Culkin in Succession, and Brett Goldstein in Ted Lasso.

In the meantime, Lee Jung Jae and Squid Game were nominated for Best Actor and Best Television Series �” Drama. However, the trophies were handed to Jeremy Strong in Succession and Succession.

Meanwhile, this year’s Golden Globes was not broadcast on television or streamed online. This is due to Hollywood’s boycott of the event for allegations of various failings, including corruption and racism of HFPA, whose members vote on the Globes.
