After winning Best International Feature Film and Best Original Screenplay, Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite wins Oscar for Best Director at the 92nd Academy Awards 2020. It’s the first time a foreign-language film has won the original screenplay Oscar since Pedro Almodóvar for Talk to Her back in 2003.
“Thank you. Great honor. Writing a script is always such a lonely process, we never write to represent our countries.” He then switched back to English: “But this is very personal to South Korea. Thank you,” Bong Joon Ho said in his award acceptance speech.
Parasite received six nominations at the 92nd Academy Awards: best picture, best director for Bong, best original screenplay, best film editing, best production design, and best international feature. The film has won three categories out of six so far.
