LOS ANGELES: South Korean black comedy “Parasite” won four awards at the Oscars 2020, including becoming the first non-English film to win the best picture.
“Parasite” also won best international film, best original screenplay and best director, for Bong Joon-ho.
Notably, the Dark South Korean social satire is the first Korean film to ever receive the night’s top prize. Not just that, no film had ever won both international feature and best picture at the Oscars.
“Parasite” has been on an unstoppable march since its debut at the Cannes Film Festival where it became the first South Korean film to win the top, Palme d’Or, award.
Quentin Tarantino’s Hollywood memory capsule “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” brought the first acting Oscar for Brad Pitt, who played a supporting role as a laid-back stunt man.
In 2014, the 56-year-old actor took home the trophy as the producer of best picture winner ‘12 Years a Slave’.
