People Kept Congratulating John Cho at The Oscars After ‘Parasite’ Win

The firm has actually additionally made money from various other Korean movies consisting of "Extreme Job" as well as "Exit".

One major victor from the event was Bong Joon Ho, whose black-comedy thriller Parasite became the first non-English-language film to earn Best Picture; the filmmaker also took home Best Director and shared Best Original Screenplay with Jin Won Han.

"Parasite" created history at the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony by winning four out of the six categories it was nominated in. Heck, Parasite and Joker would make excellent companion pieces to each other - and yes, in our humble opinion, the movie's win was richly deserved.

The live broadcast of the Academy Awards on ABC, reached its lowest point in history with 23.6 million people in the United States who tuned in to see "Parasite" be named "Best Movie".

New coronavirus cases drop in China but experts urge caution
The number of new cases has trended down in the past week, raising hopes that the epidemic may be peaking. Holland America Line said the MS Westerdam will arrive Thursday morning in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.

"Parasite" topped the list again, generating more than 500,000 tweets around the world, when it won best picture. The show featured an opening musical number from Janelle Monáe, a surprise performance from Eminem and a monologue featuring Steve Martin and Chris Rock.

Mr. Phoenix, who won the Best Actor award for "Joker", gave a rambling acceptance speech in support of veganism that included a blast at cow insemination.

While it would be logical to guess Joon-ho is a City fan, it may be more reasonable to suggest he liked the idea of the Belgian midfield maestro being turned into his junior lookalike Kevin McCallister from the Home Alone franchise.
