    It was so beautiful to see Bong Joon Ho honouring Scorsese.

    Imagine being Bong,winning against your idol and he gives you a standing ovation.Bong is extremely fortunate person right now and deservedly so.

    Scorsese also receiving ovation so heart warming considering he never got amount of love he should have from Academy.

    BRILLIANT

    If it managed to win on a preferential ballot, it would have won even easier without it.

    You couldn’t be more epically wrong, A and B) time to ditch the preferential ballot.

    Will never not be bitter than one of his worst movies (The Departed) did get the Oscar. I mean, it’s still a good movie, but it pales in comparison to other Scorsese pics.

    It really depends on what you think the Oscars are supposed to be.

    If you think all that matters is American Box Office numbers, maybe the Academy should rename Best Picture instead to Best American Picture.

    For those who believe the Oscars are supposed to be a celebration of one year’s best work in the film industry, they should keep getting more inclusive towards films made in other countries and in other languages. It’s not too arrogant to assume that every year some of the best films and performances come from outside the US. And yes, that means nominating and honoring foreign films in every category (not only International Film) to acknowledge that they are as good and as important to cinema as American films.

    Congrats everyone! Parasite is an absolutely deserving Winner! Ther was still one major snub tho… being Parasite for best Editing! That was a must. Ford v Ferrari did NOT have the better editing and I think it’s a daylight robbery..

    So what is the Irishman the only movie to get goose-egged? You hate to see it, but I can’t think of any category I would award it over other nominees.

    I think the Oscars are primarily to celebrate Hollywood and that’s okay. Every country had their prestigious awards that are biased towards their own. Now if a movie comes along that is undeniable that’s fine but there’s NOTHING wrong with American movies dominating an American award show.

    Right now we can say Golden Globe picture drama and BAFTA best film are the kisses of death for the best picture race

    Jeez I’m a 1917 stan but some users here are just too xenophobic. This was just a healthy competition y’all.

    Remember when the Oscar ceremonies used to take place back in April and nominations were announced in February?

    Yeah of course. It’s just a little crazy to me to think there once was a time when they took place in April. Of course this was back when most films were released in December.
