"Burning" has best director (Lee Chang-dong), best cinematography (Hong Kyung-pyo), best actor (Yoo Ah-in), best supporting actor (Steven Yeun), and best new actress (Jun Jong-seo). "Extreme Job" has best director (Lee Byeong-heon-I), best script (Moon Choong-il), best actor (Ryu Seung-ryong), best supporting actor (Jin Seon-kyu), and best new actor (Gong Myung).
