When Bong Joon-ho’s black comedy film about two families of different social classes premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, it blew away the jury. “Parasite” won the prestigious Palme d’Or with a unanimous vote. It has since made its theater rounds around the globe receiving glorious reviews from film buffs and simple movie-goers alike. By the end of the year, “Parasite” had been considered as one of the best films of 2019 by many critics.
On its road toward the Oscars where it gained 6 nominations, “Parasite” has been gathering awards left and right from film award-giving organizations from around the world including Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards.
