‘Parasite’ becomes the first non-English film to ever win Oscar for Best Picture

Bong Joon Ho’s film Parasite picked up the Oscar for Best Picture.

Parasite won over Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, 1917, Jojo Rabbit, and Joker.

Parasite is a satire about a struggling working-class family who ingratiate themselves as domestic workers in the lives of a wealthy family, a relationship that harrowingly exposes their class divide.

It’s the first non-English-language film ever to win the prestigious honor.
