“Parasite” wins Oscar for best picture and best international feature

South Korean black comedy “Parasite” won the best picture and best international feature at the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony held at the Dolby Theatre here on Sunday night.

“Parasite” beat out “Corpus Christi” (Poland), “Honeyland” (North Macedonia), “Les Miserables” (France) and “Pain and Glory” (Spain) in the category formerly known as best foreign-language film. It’s the second win of the film after it captured an award for best original screenplay earlier.

The movie has made history as it is the first South Korean film winning an Oscar award.

The commercially-viable and adroitly-written drama on the weighty subject of class warfare follows the members of a poor household scheming to become employees of a much wealthier family by posing as unrelated and highly- qualified individuals.

The film was widely considered a front-runner in Oscar race after it won several international trophies. It was nominated for six Oscar awards and has won two of them.
