‘Parasite’ earns six Oscar nominations, including best picture, best directing and best international feature film
Bong Joon-ho's black comedy "Parasite" has made Oscars history, becoming the first-ever South Korean film to compete for best picture.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled on Monday its final list of nominations for the 92nd annual Academy Awards.
"Parasite" scored a total of six nods, including for best international feature film, best directing, best original screenplay, production design and film editing.
Since winning the coveted Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, "Parasite" has earned numerous accolades, including the award for best foreign language film at last week's Golden Globes, placing the movie in pole position to take home an Oscar trophy.
So far, it's grossed over 24 million dollars in the U.S., making it the most popular subtitled film of the year.
Another South Korean film titled "In the Absence," a documentary on the tragic Sewol ferry sinking, also received an Oscar nomination in the documentary short subject category.
The Oscars ceremony will be held in Los Angeles on February 9th.■
