2020 Gold Derby Film Awards: ‘Parasite’ wins 6 including Best Picture, Joaquin Phoenix and Lupita Nyong’o take lead prizes

Parasite” has emerged at the 18th Annual Gold Derby Film Awards as the big winner, prevailing 6 times out of its 11 nominations including Best Picture, Best Director (Bong Joon Ho), Best Original Screenplay (Bong and Han Jin Won), Best Ensemble Cast and Best Foreign Language Film. Scroll down to see the rest of this year’s winners in all 22 categories, and watch our complete winners announcement above.

These awards were decided by more than 2,400 registered Gold Derby users, and this is the second year in a row that those savvy movie fans — who probably see more movies every year than some Oscar voters — have picked a foreign-language film in the top category. Last year “Roma” won Best Picture along with three other awards. Now “Parasite’s” total now makes it the most honored foreign-language film in the history of our kudos.

No other film came close to the Korean film’s six victories, but four other films did come away with multiple prizes. “Joker” won two of its seven bids: Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Score, continuing that film’s awards season romp in both of those categories.

“Little Women” won twice out of its nine noms. Greta Gerwig takes Best Adapted Screenplay for her take on Louisa May Alcott‘s classic novel, and the film also claims Best Costume Design.

“1917” won two out of its eight nominations, so not quite the sweep it enjoyed at the BAFTAs on February 2. It won Best Cinematography and Best Sound — that latter category combines achievements in sound editing and mixing into a single category, whereas the Oscars present that as two separate awards.

And “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which actually tied “Parasite” with a leading 11 nominations, was the winner of Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt) and Best Production Design.

Our voters honored all of the dominant acting winners this season — except one. Renee Zellweger (“Judy”) has dominated Best Actress kudos all winter, but she was overtaken by Lupita Nyong’o (“Us”), who wasn’t even nominated by the motion picture academy.

This is the first time ever that our Best Actress winner wasn’t in the Oscar lineup. And it’s the first time a Gold Derby Award acting winner has been absent from the Oscars in any category since Leonardo DiCaprio claimed Best Supporting Actor from us for “Django Unchained” (2013). There was also Alicia Vikander winning Best Supporting Actress for “Ex Machina” (2016), but she actually did win the Oscar that year in that category, just for a different movie (“The Danish Girl”).

So will the Oscars follow in our wise footsteps this weekend? Well, the motion picture academy hasn’t agreed with us on Best Picture since “12 Years a Slave” (2013). Our users have gone their own way ever since by picking “Boyhood” (2014), “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015), “La La Land” (2016), “Call Me by Your Name” (2017) and the aforementioned “Roma,” all of which were nominated for the top Oscar but lost.
