South Korean film, Parasite made history when it was announced winner in the best picture category, becoming the first non-English language film to take the top prize at the Oscars 2020. The director of the movie, Bong Joon-ho also grabbed the award for best director and also took the best original screenplay award.

The film is a vicious social satire about two families from different classes in Seoul – one who live in poverty in a semi-basement, and another rich family residing in a large home.

It managed what no other subtitled film has done in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards and won best picture. There were boos when organisers tried to cut short the best picture acceptance speech by turning the stage lights off – leading the lights to be turned back on, allowing the celebrations to continue.
