“Parasite” Wins Big at 2020 Oscars
South Korean black comedy film, “Parasite”, dominated the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, 9 February, walking away at the end of the night with four Oscars.
Directed by Bong Joon-ho and released in 2019, “Parasite” tells the story of a poor family trying to infiltrate a wealthy household, only for their attempts to come with dire consequences.
At the ceremony held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, the film – which had been nominated for six awards – won the award for Best Picture. It is the first non-English language film in history to win in this category.
“Parasite” also received Oscars for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Film. Additionally, it received nominations for Best Production Design and Best Film Editing.
Bong’s film faced stiff competition from Todd Phillips’ “Joker” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman”, which received 11 and 10 nominations, respectively.
