At this year’s awards ceremony, actress Yuh Jung Youn was honored to be invited to the stage by the organizers to announce the best supporting actor award. As soon as she got on stage, actress Youn Yuh Jung used sign language to announce and present this award, because the winning actor Troy Kotsur was deaf.
She even holds the golden statuette and attentively observes what the actor is trying to convey to the fans.
It is known that this year Troy Kotsur won the award for his role as a supporting actor with a deaf father in the movie Coda. On stage, he thanked the Academy, director Sian Heder, and residents of Gloucester, Massachusetts, for helping him with filming.
While announcing the winner, Korean actress Yuh Jung Youn was extremely touched. She said that announcing the winners was not as easy as imagined. That’s why she regrets that she once blamed the Academy for pronouncing her name incorrectly at last year’s awards ceremony. This moment made many people present at the awards ceremony emotional.
Troy Kotsur was born in 1968 and was born deaf. He is the first deaf actor to win an Oscar. Before his co-star in Coda, actress Marlee Matlin was the first deaf actress to win an Oscar for the film Children Of A Lesser God (1986).
Just the one who announced the award, but Korea’s ‘national grandmother’ has reached the top trending search on Twitter.
