- Parasite won Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards, becoming the first ever non-English language film to do so.
- Director Bong Joon Ho won four Oscars on the night, tying Walt Disney’s record.
- You can watch Parasite right now—here’s how.
In perhaps the most welcomed shock in recent film history memory, Parasite won Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday, February 9, becoming the first-ever non-english language film to do so (it’s a subtitled South Korean film, distributed by NEON in America). The Oscars often struggle to identify the actual Best Picture in a given year, but this time, by hook or by crook, they got it right. And the best part? You can watch Parasite right this second, if you want to.
That’s right. First, Parasite is still in theaters (a black-and-white version also has begun showing at select theaters), so if you want the full big-screen experience, there’s still time. Check your local listings for showtimes near you.
For those of you who are eager to watch Parasite (even if it’s for a second, third, or fourth time) but are slightly less ambitious, we have great news: you can stream Parasite online. If you want to rent or buy Parasite to watch in your home theater, or on your computer, your phone, tablet, whatever, here is the link:
In addition to Parasite‘s Best Picture win, the movie also won Best Director for Bong Joon Ho (beating out Sam Mendes for 1917, Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time…, Martin Scorsese for The Irishman and Todd Phillips for Joker), along with Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. It’s an incredible feat for the film, and it’s a prize that’s supremely well deserved.
