The Oscars nominees were recently announced and "Parasite" received multiple nominations, further cementing itself as one of the best movies of 2019 after multiple acknowledgments ranging from the Cannes Film Festival to the Critic's Choice Awards.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled its final list of nominations for the 2020 Oscars Awards, to be held on February 9.

The cast of The Irishman won the Best Acting Ensemble in a Film award, Renee Zellweger won for Best Actress in a Film for Judy, Joaquin Phoenix was named Best Actor in a Film for Joker and Laura Dern earned the prize for Best Supporting Actress in a Film for Marriage Story. This Bong Joon-ho directorial was led by veteran South Korean actor Song Kang-ho and has been winning acclaim and accolades on a global scale.

Bong Joon Ho won Best Director for "Parasite" in a tie with Sam Mendes for "1917". While everyone bet their money on Parasite getting a Best Foreign Language Film (now renamed Best International Feature Film) nomination, which it did, we were still on the loop for a Best Film nomination for the film.

Do you think Parasite has what it takes to win the Oscar for Best Film? It has collected a number of prizes from United States film critics associations and brought home best foreign language film at the Golden Globes Awards last week.

The 92nd Oscars ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on February 9.
