"Parasite" made history Sunday in winning the Oscar for best picture, as the first non-English language film to score the coveted award.
The South Korean film beat heavy competition from films including the heavily favored war epic "1917" to take home its fourth statuette of the night.
Earlier, it won the prizes for best director for Bong Joon-ho, best international feature and best original screenplay to become the big winner on Hollywood's biggest night.
It has also proved a box-office hit, taking more than $161 million worldwide, including more than $30 million in North America.
"Parasite" beat out Poland's "Corpus Christi," "Les Miserables" from France, Spain's "Pain and Glory," and "Honeyland" from North Macedonia.
