South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's Parasite created history by becoming the first non-English-language film ever to win Oscars for Best Picture. The win makes Parasite the first-ever foreign-language film in the ceremony's 92-year history to take the top prize.


The black comedy movie also won the Best International Feature Film as well as Best Director and Original Screenplay.

Director Bong Joon Ho's win in the directing category was a surprise as "1917" director Sam Mendes was expected to bag the award after securing the Golden Globe and Directors Guild.

Renée Zellweger took home the best actress prize for her role in "Judy," while Joaquin Phoenix received the best actor nod for "Joker".
