- Parasite won Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards, becoming the first ever non-English language film to do so.
- Director Bong Joon Ho won four Oscars on the night, tying Walt Disney's record.
- You can watch Parasite right now—here's how.
In perhaps the most welcomed shock in recent film history memory, Parasite won Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards, becoming the first-ever non-english language film to do so (it's a subtitled South Korean film, distributed by NEON in America). The Oscars often struggle to actually identify the actual Best Picture in a given year, but this time, by hook or by crook, they got it right. And the best part? You can watch the movie right this second, if you want to.
That's right. With Parasite, you've got a few options to watch it; Parasite is still in theaters (a black-and-white version also has begun showing at select theaters), so if you want the full big-screen experience, you can check your local listings. For those who are slightly less ambitious, but still eager to check the movie out (or to see it for a second, third, or fourth time), we have great news: it's available to stream right now (with options to both rent and purchase available). If you want to check Parasite out in your home theater, or on your computer, your phone, tablet, whatever, that link is available right here:
In addition to its historic Best Picture win, the movie also won Best Director for Bong Joon Ho (beating out Sam Mendes for 1917, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time..., Martin Scorsese for The Irishman and Todd Phillips for Joker), along with Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. It's an incredible feat for the film, and it's a prize that's supremely well deserved.
