For your awards consideration, explore outstanding Asian and Pacific Islander filmmakers, talent, and films.
Gold Open has partnered with the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment CAPE to launch the inaugural Gold List which honors the most outstanding Asian and Pacific Islander (API) achievements in film each year. Gold Open is part of Gold House, which bolsters multicultural movies to box office success — most notably, the movement brought shine to Parasite and Crazy Rich Asians.
Featuring 10 categories, Gold List is voted on by the Gold Open Advisory Council, Gold House Members (the premier nonprofit collective of leading API creatives, executives, and founders), CAPE Board Members and Advisors (the premier API-entertainment nonprofit), and other entertainment leaders. Future Gold Lists will endeavor to include additional categories and communities.
Gold House and CAPE have hosted conversations with various Gold List honorees which can be watched here. Please view the honorees’ pages below for these conversations, and subscribe and follow here for future announcements.
Lee Isaac Chung’s Minari tops the inaugural Gold List in seven categories including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor for Steve Yeun, Best Actress for Yeri Han, Best Supporting Actor for Alan Kim, and Best Supporting Actress forYuh-Jung Youn.
