'Parasite' wins Best Original Screenplay award at Oscars

Nevertheless, its success at the Academy Awards was something of a surprise.

The new lyrics to "Come Alive" also reflected the controversy around this year's Oscars, that saw only one actor of color nominated in all four acting categories. Only 5 women have been nominated in the category in the 90-year history of the Academy Awards. Sure, he won the award for Best Original Song for "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile in 2003, but he didn't even bother showing up to the event then. This was the first Oscar won by a South Korean film, and it was Bong's first Oscar, too. Time magazine said Bong has practically become "the protagonist of this awards season for his roguish charm and effortlessly quotable soundbites".

The red carpet at the Oscars is a chance for celebrities to put their best foot forward and dazzle the hordes of cameras. "I was ready to relax". This year, none of the female directors made I to the list of Oscars nominations and the 38-year-old actor isn't going to let people forget them. Although, once again, female filmmakers were entirely shut out of the best director race. While accepting the award, the director took a brief moment to shout out Arnold and the Crown Act.

"Parasite" made history as the first worldwide film to win best picture.

With the award ceremony still underway, "Parasite" has also been nominated for five other Oscars, including best picture, best directing, best global feature film, production design and film editing. Bong won as a producer on the film and claimed his fourth Oscar of the night.

Despite the shock success, perhaps the most surprising thing about Joon-ho is that he is a massive fan of City's De Bruyne.
