Oscars 2020: ‘Parasite’ Makes History

 ‘Parasite’ Makes Oscar History With Best Picture Win. The South Korean film was the first foreign-language movie to win the top award. It also won best director, best international film and best original screenplay. Renée Zellweger won best actress for “Judy.” Joaquin Phoenix won best actor for his performance as a deranged outcast in “Joker.”

In a historic victory that highlighted the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ scramble to diversify its voting ranks following the outcry over #OscarsSoWhite, the South Korean thriller “Parasite” won best picture — the first foreign-language film to do so — and collected three other trophies on Sunday night, including one for Bong Joon Ho’s directing.

“Parasite,” a genre-defying tale of class warfare, allowed voters to simultaneously embrace the future — Hollywood may finally be starting to move past its overreliance on white stories told by white filmmakers — and remain reverential to decades-old tradition: Unlike some other best-picture nominees, “Parasite” was given a conventional release in theaters

The night ended on a note of jubilant surprise, as Parasite scooped up its fourth Oscar of the evening with an unexpected upset win for Best Picture over frontrunner 1917.
