On July 18th the Chunsa Film Art Awards ceremony will be held. The Chunsa Film Festival is the most prestigious of the various South Korean award ceremonies. In contrast to the other ones, which have broader voting bodies and focus principally on mainstream films, the Chunsa Film Festival's nominations are decided by five highly respected local film critics and voted on by South Korean film directors.
"Parasite" leads the field with eight nominations spread out across seven categories. For best director (Bong Joon-ho), best cinematography (Hong Kyung-pyo), best actor (Song Kang-ho and Choi Wooshik), best actress (Cho Yeo-jeong), best supporting actress (Lee Jung-eun), and best supporting actor (Park Myung-hoon).
"Burning" and "Extreme Job" follow with five nominations apiece. "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).
"The Spy Gone North", "Believer", and "Last Child" had four nominations apiece. "Microhabitat", "After My Death", "Dark Figure of Crime", "Miss Baek", "Juror 8", "Birthday", "Little Forest", "The Great Battle", "Sunset in My Hometown", "Ode to the Goose", "Herstory", "Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum", "Beautiful Days", "Park Hwa-young", "The Witch : Part 1. The Subversion" also received nominations across ten categories.
