Oscars 2020 highlights: Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite wins Best Picture, Joaquin Phoenix wins Best Actor

Bong Joon Ho's Parasite made history, Brad Pitt won his first acting Oscar, Laura Dern collected best supporting actress and Joaquin Phoenix won the best actor Oscar at the 92nd Academy Awards.Bong's South Korean class satire took four big awards: best picture, best director, best original screenplay and best international film. All were the first Oscars for a Korean film. Bong and co-writer Han Jin Won became the first Asian writers to take the screenplay prize. Parasite became the first non-English language film to win best picture.As it has for much of awards season, Parasite appeared the favourite in the room. A standing ovation greeted Bong's win for international film. “I am ready to drink tonight,” said Bong to roars from the crowd. Unexpectedly called up again for best director, Bong saluted his fellow nominees, particularly Martin Scorsese, and concluded: “Now I'm ready to drink until tomorrow.”Also read: Parasite movie review: Bong Joon-ho’s sensational masterpiece is the first great film of the new decadeAs it did last year, the annual Dolby Theatre ceremony kicked off without a host. Janelle Monae opened the show entering a Mister Rogers set and singing A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. “I’m so proud to be standing here as a black queer artist telling stories," said Monae. "Happy Black History Month.”Two former Oscar hosts, Chris Rock and Steve Martin, dropped in to supply an opening monologue. Martin called it “an incredible demotion.” Martin noted that something was missing from this year's directing nominees. “Vaginas!" Rock replied.Here are the highlights of the 92nd Academy Awards here:

The Academy is largely white and male. Many members haven’t worked in years, are out of sync with Hollywood’s own global market, and their bias is now driving young movie watchers to other metrics of excellence, like the Baftas, the relatively low-key British equivalent; and crowdsourced resources like IMDb.
