BAFTA Awards 2021: Minari’s Youn Yuh-jung calls British people ‘snobbish’ in a playful acceptance speech


The British Academy of Film and Television Arts recognised the best of talents in the film and television industry every year. With the coronavirus pandemic changing how events are held, the BAFTA ceremony was held virtually with merely the hosts and presenters in attendance. Taking home one of the major honours this year in the Supporting Actress category was Youn Yuh-jung who won the honour for her performance in Minari. 

Yuh-Jung Youn who looked surprised and honoured to take home the award gave one of the funniest acceptance speeches at the ceremony. While the actress started off with a condolence message on Prince Philip”s passing, Youn Yuh-jung soon changed the sombre atmosphere with some light-hearted humour.  The actress’ win was also celebrated by co-star Steven Yeun on Twitter as he shared her acceptance speech with heart emojis. 

Bringing out the biggest laughs for the evening, the Minari actress said, “Thank you so much for this award. Every award is meaningful, but this one, especially being recognized by British people, known as snobbish people and they approve me as a good actor, I am very happy. Thank you so much.” 

The acceptance speech is now going viral on social media as the Minari actress’ tongue-in-cheek humour is being appreciated by many.  Youn’s BAFTA win comes after her Screen Actors Guild award win. The actress is being considered to be a frontrunner for the Supporting Actress Award at this year’s Oscars too. Well, after that BAFTA Awards acceptance speech, we can’t imagine what Youn’s Academy Award-winning speech will be like.

Receptionist Excluded From Pizza Order At Work Sued And Won $32,000 In Court – The Shade Room

Published

on

TSR Cut The Foolery: Sometimes it pays to be petty, $32,000 to be exact for a car dealership receptionist who was feeling a way when she apparently got left out during the office pizza order.

A court recently described Malgorzata Lewicka’s experience as a “campaign of victimization,” and that she had been deliberately excluded from “Pizza Fridays” at the car dealership she worked at before being laid off in January of 2019, Newsweek reports.

Managers at Hartwell, a Ford car dealership in Watford, U.K., would ask their staff which takeaway food they would like to order every month, but Lewicka told the court that she was not asked what she would like to eat.

Sis explained that “other employees were asked but she was not asked if she wanted to order food or participate.” Lewicka added that this occurred after she had accused one of the staff members of sexual discrimination back in March of 2018.

Her colleague was investigated following the complaint and Hartwell found that gross misconduct had been committed. The colleague was issued a written final warning.

That wasn’t the only issue Lewicka had with her former employer. She also complained about her working hours and pay.

After speaking out, Lewicka says she was left out of the office festivities including the company-wide lunch, which took place on the last Friday of every month.

Hartwell claimed that Lewicka was not invited to the lunches because she was a part-time worker, finishing daily at 1 p.m., but the court ruled that this was not a reasonable excuse.

Judge Jennifer Bartlett said: “We accept that the lunches may have been ad hoc and they were informal. However (Lewicka) gave clear evidence that at Hemel a manager went around the site taking lunch orders and that she was included. However when she moved to Watford she was not asked if she wanted to order or participate whereas other colleagues were…She could have been asked if she wanted to join in.”

The judges added: “We find that her exclusion was victimization which continued until around the time of her dismissal.”

It’s bigger than the pizza though, y’all. The court also heard testimony that some of Lewicka’s colleagues would not speak to her and hang up the phone if she picked up their call.

The judge ruled that she received less favorable treatment as a part-time employee because she is a single mother, and this amounted to sexual discrimination.

Lewicka was awarded the £23,079 ($32,078.31) for loss of earnings and injury to her feelings.

We can all benefit from being kinder, and if you’re not, Ms. Lewicka just taught us it might cost ya!

Jill Biden Shows Support For Melania Trump After Posting A Photo Of Her Rose Garden – See Pic

Published

on

First Lady Jill Biden took to Twitter to show off a gorgeous pic of the White House’s Rose Garden that Melania Trump controversially renovated last summer.

Jill Biden, 69, is appreciating the renovated Rose Garden that Melania Trump, 51, left behind after leaving the White House earlier this year. The First Lady shared a new pic of the flower-filled area to her Twitter page on May 7 and added an exciting caption to it. “Spring is here at the @WhiteHouse!” the caption read.

Although she didn’t mention Melania directly, the tweet could be seen as a sign of support for the wife of former President Donald Trump, 74. After she renovated the garden in Aug. 2020, it received a lot of controversy from critics. Private donations were used to return the garden back to its roots and honor the original design by Bunny Mellon, which President John Kennedy requested in 1962, but people spoke out against the results once they noticed Melania got rid of the crabapple trees that were originally put there during Kennedy’s time at the White House.

Some online users also complained that Melania’s chosen flowers were too pale compared to the brightly colored ones that were there during the Obama administration and an online petition on change.org even garnered more than 75,000 signatures to try and get the Biden administration to undo her changes. Former first lady Jackie Kennedy was the one to originally restore the garden in the early 1960s after years of neglect and the description of the petition states that the late political figure’s “legacy was ripped away” when Melania renovated the garden. At the time of the changes, the White House responded and explained that the flowers just needed time to grow before they would eventually flourish.

After Jill shared her latest photo of the Melania-approved Rose Garden, some followers brought up the ongoing controversy and asked her to change it back to the way it was prior to Melania’s changes. “Sadly scarred by concrete and the loss of beautiful trees. Please restore our Rose Garden,” one follower wrote while another urged her to “take out the wretched cement and return the rose garden to its former glory!” A third pleaded, “Please replace the beautiful rose garden & crabapple trees that were horrendously & callously destroyed. Return it to the beauty it once was.”

Despite the command for changes, there’s no confirmation that the Rose Garden will undergo any renovations anytime soon. The South Lawn of the White House, however, is currently undergoing a massive renovation which is reportedly part of a security and infrastructure upgrade.
