Bong Joon Ho is creating a new wave internationally by bagging three Oscars at the 92nd Academy Awards. Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite represented Korea and won for the first time ever. The makers have been lauded with several awards. However, Bong Joon Ho receiving the Best Director for his film is the icing on the cake at the Oscars 2020.
He received the award and slowly after that he was busy admiring the trophy. Twiterratis shared a short snippet of the director chuckling away and accepting his new trophy. He seemed exhilarated and could not stop from showing his broad smile and patting on his fellow crew.
South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon Ho is only the second director to direct a foreign language film and win the best director category at the Oscars 2020. His film Parasite won in three main categories namely Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film. These three awards have added to the list of awards the film has won in the last month.
The only previous director to enjoy a foreign language win before Bong Joon Ho is Alfonso Cuaron for the film Roma in 2018. Parasite’s Bong Joon Ho had some tough co-nominations to beat like Quentin Tarantino who directed Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Todd Philips who directed Joker and also Sam Mendes who directed 1917.
