    Korean satire makes history by winning Oscar's Best Picture award

    Parasite that was the biggest winner of the night. The film picked up four awards in total, including Best Director, which saw him beating out the favorite, Mendes.

    South Korean satire Parasite scored a stunning upset and made Oscars history when it won the Best Picture award– the first film in a foreign language to do so. Oscar's watchers had considered the Best Picture category a three-way race between independent social satire Parasite, British director Sam Mendes' immersive World War One movie 1917 from Universal Pictures, and Quentin Tarantino's love letter to show business, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, from Sony Pictures.
