South Korean film 'Parasite' makes history by winning Best Film Oscar

@AFP
The 92nd Oscar awards have been announced and for the first time in the history of awards, a non-english film 'Parasite' managed to win not one but four prizes. Bong Joon Ho's satire on class divides in South Korea took Hollywood's top prize along with awards for best director, best international film and best screenplay. Parasite defeated highly-fancied dramas including 1917, Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and The Irishman.

In other categories, Joaquin Phoenix won the best actor for "Joker" and Renee Zellweger bagged the best actress for "Judy". For best supporting act Brad Pitt got the award for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" and Laura Dern for "Marriage Story".

Though "Parasite" dominated the glittering ceremony held in Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, but questions were raised about the absence of women and people of colour in the main nominations.

The documentary feature Oscar went to the Barack and Michelle Obama backed "American Factory", about the face-off between a Chinese entrepreneur and factory workers in Ohio.
