USA Today Picks Kim Yunjin as Emmy Award Nominee

2005/06/23 | 111 views | Permalink | Source

USA Today has chosen actress Kim Yunjin as a likely nominee for the Emmy Award. Kim was previously picked as a likely candidate for the same award in June by the U.S. broadcasting magazine, TV Guide. USA Today announced the list of Emmy Award candidates on June 16, choosing Kim as a candidate for the best actress award for her role of "Sun" in the ABC series "Lost".

The newspaper wrote that although either of the series' lead actors - Josh Halloway and Terry O'Quinn - were good enough to be nominated for best actor, it would recommend only Kim for the best actress nomination.

Kim says she was very flattered to hear the news from her U.S. agent, although she says she doesn't expect to win the award.

"Lost", which premiered in the United States last September, was a big hit, drawing 18 million viewers on average. Instead of the initially planned 13 episodes, the series was extended to 24 episodes. USA Today and TV Guide also chose Evangeline Lilly and Matthew Fox as the likely candidates for best actress and actor, respectively. Nominees for the Emmy Award will be announced in mid-July, and the award ceremony will be held in September.

Kim, who recently finished the filming of the first season of "Lost", has also starred in a Nescafe TV commercial and is currently filming the Korean movie "June Diary". She will once again leave Korea in mid-July to film the second season of "Lost".
