    Supporting. In terms of “lead”-ness, it was Choi Woo Shik > Song Kang Ho > Cho Yeo Jeong > Park So Dam, but none of them were lead.

    Supporting, obviously. The character that’s the closest to be the lead is Ki-woo/Kevin, but actually the film is an ensemble movie so the entire cast is supporting.

    While I definitely agree that she is Supporting, it’s interesting that she was thrust into Lead at some of the Korean based awards (I think she even WON a Best Actress award over there).

    I also agree that the film is the true definition of an ensemble, but if I were to put anyone in Lead it would be Choi Woo-shik.

    Cho Yeo Jeong should’ve WON Supporting and its a shame she wasn’t nominated…and it’s even more frustrating knowing that it was at the expense of a performance on the level as Laura Dern’s and also, it isn’t like PARASITE was some obscure movie. It did WIN the award after all. It’s just a shame that foreign performances are still difficult to have break through, especially among Asian actors.

    no matter how great or acting masterclass the foreign movies performances were, The so called academy awards always put the popularity first, not the greatness of the performance. If they really reward the best of the best, the list of foreign performances winners would be (actresses only):

    Liv Ullmann, Face to Face (1976)

    Ingrid Bergman, Autumn Sonata (1978)

    Fernanda Montenegro, Central Station (1998) *losing to an awful performance.

    Kim Eul boon, The Way Home (2002)

    Leila Hatami, A Separation (2011)

    Emmanuelle Riva, Amour (2012)

    Adele Exarchopoulos, Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)

    Marion Cotillard, Two Days, One Night (2014)

    Isabelle Huppert, Elle (2016)

    Yalitza Aparicio, Roma (2018)

    Rinko Kikuchi, Babel (2006)

    Sareh Bayet, A Separation (2011)

    Marina de Tavira, Roma (2018)

    Zhao Suzhen, The Farewell (2019)

    Cho Yeo Jeong, So Dam Park, Lee Jeung Eun, Parasite (2019)

    Even the Mansion in Parasite deserved it more than all of the 2019’s acting nominees combined.

    Parasite has no lead. It’s an ensemble film.

    Fuck the Grammys

    Parasite is a true ensemble film. You could make the case that the son is the lead, but not really anyone else.

    Not true. The four members of the main family are lead.

    Parasite was good but it wasn’t a masterclass in acting.

    Choi Woo-shik is the only Lead in Parasite.

    Definitely not true. You could make a case for the son and father, but not the sister and definitely not the mother.

    No. They’re really not. They don’t have the screentime or the focus throughout the film to be leads. I could see a case for Song Kang-ho also being lead, but not really the sister and definitely not the mother.

    The son is “the lead,” but it’s 100% an ensemble film.

    The film is clearly about the family, its social status and the decisions they collectively make to move from it. They all share the same struggles and similar screentime. The four of them are lead and the other two families are supporting.
