Parasweep!!!!! "Parasite" won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay at the 92nd Academy Awards

Bong Joon-ho's black comedy "Parasite" won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay at the 92nd Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday (local time). It was the first Korean film to take home the prestigious prize in the country's 101-year cinema history. It was co-written by Bong and Han Jin-won.



"Writing a script is such a lonely process, and we never write to represent our country. This is the very first Oscar for South Korea. Thank you," the auteur said through his interpreter in an acceptance speech. "I thank my wife for always giving inspiration to me, and I thank all the actors here with me today for bringing this film to life." Co-writer Han said he wanted to share this honor with his colleagues and with storytellers in South Korea. "Parasite" is the first non-English movie to win the best original screenplay award since the Spanish-language "Talk to Her" written by Pedro Almodovar won the title in 2002. "Parasite" was also nominated in five other categories at the Oscars: best picture, best director, best screenplay, best editing, and best production design.
