The Korean movie Parasite bagged the top prize at 92nd Academy Awards on February 10 and became the first non-English language film to win the best picture award. However, Parasite's coproducer Miky Lee almost did not get to give her acceptance speech after the award was announced. As Kwak Sin gave a 45-second speech and turned to let Lee speak, the lights went off on the stage and the spotlight was shifted to Jane Fonda for the final message. 

However, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks and other stars started chanting “up, up, up” and waved their hands, when they realised that Lee was not able to speak. After a few seconds, the lights finally came back on and everyone cheered. In the end, both Kwak and Lee were able to give their entire acceptance speech to celebrate their film while its writer and director, Bong Joon Ho, opted not to speak as he had already given three acceptance speeches. The Parasite also won best original screenplay, best international film, and best director.
