Oscars 2020: Parasite infects the Academy with historic wins

• Australia’s  Margot Robbie missed out on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress

• Brad Pitt claims first acting Academy Award
• Margot Robbie misses out for Bombshell

Parasite has become the first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars with Bong Joon-ho also taking home the statue for Best Director, on a monumental night for South Korean film making.

The night started out with a small bit of history with Brad Pitt claiming his first ever Academy Award, winning for Best Supporting Actor for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Joaquin Phoenix won the Oscar for best actor for his dark turn as the Joker in the titular film Joker which was also a commercial success being the fifth highest-grossing movie in Australian in 2019. Phoenix delivered an emotional speech that mentioned his commitment to veganism and his deceased brother, River Phoenix.

Renée Zellweger won the second Oscar of her career for her portrayal of the final years of the iconic Judy Garland.

Australia’s  Margot Robbie missed out on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her work on Bombshell, with Laura Dern winning best supporting actress for her knockout performance in Marriage Story.

While it was a better story for our neighbours in New Zealand with Taika Waititi winning for Best Adapted Screenplay for his work on Jojo Rabbit.
