Parasite is the the first non-English language film in Oscar history to win the award for Best Picture.

It is also the first film from South Korea to be nominated and win.

Writer, Director and Producer Bong Joon Ho won all three of the categories for which he was nominated, now with three Oscar wins to match his three nominations.

In his acceptance speech, Bong Joon Ho paid tribute to his fellow nominees.

“When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that ‘The most personal is the most creative.’
That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese’s films. Just to be nominated was a huge honor. I never thought I would win.”

– Boon Joon Ho
