    Oscar's Best Picture Parasite

    Isn't there a separate category for Foreign films?




    The Academy Award for Best International Feature Film (known as Best Foreign Language Film prior to 2020) is one of the Academy Awards handed out annually by the U.S.-based Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS).
    It is given to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States with a predominantly non-English dialogue track.[1]

    In fact, Parasite was among the Foreign films nominees!


    Is it political - because of complaints of lack of visible minorities among contenders?

    You can of course show where in the rules a film cannot be nominated in more than one category? https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/...92aa_rules.pdf. Bet you can't...

    Do you believe it's political? Or, do you want others to say w/o you having to?

    OP is trying to say the quiet racist thing out loud.

    While I thought Once Upon a Time in Hollywood should have gotten the Oscar, Parasite is still a great film that won the award based on it's merits.

    "Parasite" is the perfect movie. What's more, almost everyone enjoys it, only the people who don't like popular things don't like it.

    How could it not win?

    Parasite is one of the finest films I have ever seen.

    Trump has complained that it won. He hates to see what the help is doing behind his back. No, but seriously, he hates to read.

    Lol. What kind of idiotic comment is that? Just because he twitted about it doesn't mean I can't talk about it! Cheeez.
    I must've stepped on a nerve or sumthing -


    Btw, isn't it the first for a foreign film to win Best Picture?


    Parasite pulls off stunning Oscars upset to become first foreign-language Best Picture winner

    After all these years.....


    I was just wondering if it isn't political - because of the complaints and the timing - after all, there's a foreign feature category!
    I'm questioning the category.


    Lol. Why have a foreign film category if it doesn't matter at all?

    I'm not critiquing the quality of the film.
    It looks like it is a very good film - I haven't seen it yet. See post #7.
