Oscars 2020: Best Picture winner Parasite makes Oscars history

Parasite’s Korean director Bong Joon-ho upset the odds to win both Best Picture and Best Director at this year’s Academy Awards on a night of mixed feelings over the Academy’s perceived lack of diversity.

Sam Mendes’ First World War epic 1917 flagged somewhat after its seven-award Bafta triumph, with Disney and Parasite’s US distributor Neon sharing the studio honours with four wins apiece. Despite a record 24 nominations, Netflix only won two awards on the night. A full list of winners can be found below:
