congratulations to "Parasite"

So! 2019's "Parasite" just won Best Picture at the 2020 Oscars. It also won Best Director (Bong Joon-ho), Best International Feature Film, and Best Original Screenplay. I was sad that it wasn't up for any acting awards, but the cast did win Best Ensemble Cast at the Screen Actors' Guild Awards, and the movie has snagged plenty of other awards internationally.

Well, congratulations to all the people involved in making "Parasite." Well done!

  1. HJ thinks that there were no acting nominations because most Korean actors are essentially unknown in the US, although you would think that cinephiles would know Song Kang-ho.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken, I think only 1 out of the 20 acting nominees was even a person of color, so there's that as well.
