Oscar Moments: Red Carpet, Glambot, and Four Awards in a Row
Some of the group’s expressions during the Oscars were so full of personality and happiness. Bong Joon-ho never thought that Parasite would win four Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film all together in one night. He said they were ready to drink all night after the award ceremony finished.
All the main cast came to the red carpet and showed their excitement at the Oscars in slow-motion portraits. Choi Woo-shik, who played Ki-woo, could speak English, and was helping to manage the Parasite cast pose for th video portraits ‘glambot’.
The interpreter who always standing beside Bong Joo-ho, Sharon Choi, also got attention, since she could relay all Korean statements made by Bong Joo-ho on the stage. She could express cultural Korean words spoken by Bong into English without losing their meaning.
Racism And How People Deal With It
Although Parasite won four Oscar awards and has been flooded of compliments from every direction, there have still been racist statements made about it, including that the movies was not fit to win the Oscar awards, the American prizes. There were people who commented brutally that Parasite‘s win was destructive to America because a non-English movie won Best Picture instead of ‘1917’ or ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’. Other than that, some people also commented that it was to difficult to understand the movie while reading the subtitles.
As Bong said at the Golden Globes while acquiring the award for best foreign-language film, “Once you overcome the 1-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.”
The movie Parasite has begun to spread awareness about what is happening to society. The South Korean government has been making a priority of the estimated 1500 low-income families that are living in the semi-basement-type accommodations like the Kim family in this movie.
There is a rumor that Parasite will become a spin-off series in HBO limited series, and Mark Ruffalo and Tilda Swinton were rumored to be the stars in the upcoming series.
