BAFTA 2021 Film Awards: Felicity Jones makes a stylish arrival
Felicity Jones looked the picture of sophistication in a black beaded floor length gown as she arrived at London's Royal Albert Hall on Sunday for the BAFTA 2021 Film Awards. The actress, 37, draped a tailored black blazer over her shoulders as she stepped out of her car and made her way into the venue.She styled her brunette tresses in soft waves and wore a gentle glow of make-up offset with a deep shadowing of mascara on her lashes.
Whether this means she is going for a trio of wins and gunning for an Oscar in two weeks is yet to be seen. She said of this: 'I don’t know anything about Oscars. I’m very famous domestic wise but not internationally. I don’t know what’s happening to me!'
In Minari, Youn played the grandmother character Soonja from Korea visiting relatives in Arkansas in the 1980s.
The Lee Isaac Chung-directed film also stars Steven Yeun, Yeri Han and Alan S. Kim.
Youn is also nominated for an Oscar for her turn in the drama, one of six nominations the film has garnered.
Other nominations include Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Yeun, and Chung with nominations for Best Achievement in Directing and Best Original Screenplay.

Like the real-life nomads in the movie, the Oscar winner is playing a version of herself.It's the result of working with writer-director Chloé Zhao, who up until Nomadland had largely cast nonprofessional actors and built characters for them inspired by their own lives. Nomadland is adapted from a nonfiction book of the same name and does, in fact, feature a number of real-life nomads playing versions of themselves onscreen.
