Oscars 2020 Winners: Parasite Wins Big, 1917 Stumbles

Worthy winners?

Parasite movie

We’ve reached the end of the awards season with the Oscar winners announced, and it was a wonderful night for South Korea’s Parasite, winning four of its six nominations, including Best Picture, a surprise win for Best Director, and taking home prizes for its Original Screenplay and International Film.

For other multiple winners, 1917 had three wins for Cinematography, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects, though there’s no doubt Universal is disappointed in it losing seven of its ten categories. Ford v Ferrari had two wins for Sound Editing and Film Editing, Joker took home Best Actor for Joaquin Phoenix and Original Score, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood had wins for Brad Pitt in Supporting Actor and in Production Design.
