Although we awarded ‘Parasite’ a glowing five-star review back in May, we didn’t necessarily see it sweeping the board at the Oscars 2020. But last night, at the 92nd Academy Awards, Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s incredible suspense-filled comedy/thriller/social satire became the first foreign film to pick up the coveted prize for Best Picture. ‘Parasite’ also saw Bong scoop gongs for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. 

Other notable winners on the night included Joaquin Phoenix, picking up the Best Actor award for ‘Joker’, Renée Zellweger, named Best Actress for her turn as Judy Garland in ‘Judy’, and Sam Mendes’s war epic ‘1917’, which took home three technical awards.
