‘Parasite’ Just Made Oscars History As It Becomes The First Foreign Language Film To Win Best Picture

This South Korean masterpiece has earned its place.


‘Parasite’ has earned not just one or two, but four awards at the Oscar 2020. The South Korean dark comedy won Best Pictures, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. It was directed by Bong Joon-ho that follows the poor family Kim.

During his acceptance speech on Oscar, the director joked, “I’m ready to drink tonight.” The show earned $100 million worldwide and had proven to be so relatable and hilarious to many. “The story is very universal. It’s a story about rich and poor. But maybe there is something more,” said director Bong.

This isn’t just the first Korean movie, but also marks for the first South Korean director to win Best Director award. “Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win. I will drink until next morning,” said the director jokingly.

Bong also announced that he’s working with director Adam McKay to adapt a six-hour HBO version of the show. He also will add ‘hidden stories’ in this limited series that he was unable to do on the two-hour movie due to runtime. They haven’t revealed if it’ll be in Korean or English.
