Parasite is biggest Oscar winner

Lupita Ruiz, Feature Editor

It’s Oscar season, Wolves! So what kind of newspaper would we be if we didn’t backtrack to this extravagant night and review some of the biggest highlights from the show?

The night started off not surprising at all as Brad Pitt won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In Pitt’s 45-second acceptance speech, he took the time to get political and roast the Senate for their latest decision on Trump’s impeachment.

Best Supporting Actress went to Laura Dern for her role in Marriage Story, and it was actually her birthday during the show, so what a great gift!

Now, of course, the Best Actress and Best Actor categories are always some of the hardest awards to predict for the night, but it was no surprise to anyone that Joaquin Phoenix took the win for his intense role in Jokerand Renée Zellweger won for her role in the movie Judy,an homage to the late actress Judy Garland.

Now let’s honor the biggest movie of the night,Parasite. Parasite made history. The South Korean film was the first-ever film not in the English language to win the prestigious Best Picture Award. It also took home three other awards, including one for Best Director for Bong Joon-ho.

Before we wrap this review up, let’s not forget that Greta Gerwig was not nominated for directing Little Women,and there were only male nominees for the Best Director category. Also, we need to give a little shoutout to 1917 because it was an amazing film and it was the favorite to win Best Picture, yet it lost toParasite.

This year had an amazing list of winners. Now we wait again for next year’s Oscars, where one would hope we will have more women nominees and, overall, more diversity.
