Bong Joon-ho made history last night at the Oscars when he won four awards and had his film, “Parasite“, become the first non-English speaking film to win the Best Picture Award. The writer/creator actually managed to tie another very famous writer/creator in Oscar wins, that creator being the man behind one of the most powerful entertainment companies of all time… Walt Disney.
Bong Joo-ho scored four Oscars last night: Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, and Best International Feature Film.
By doing this he has tied for the record of most awards in one night, the record only being previously held by Walt Disney. Disney took home four awards himself back in 1954 for
“The Living Desert” (Best Documentary Feature), “The Alaskan Eskimo” (Best Documentary Short), “Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom” (Best Short Subject Cartoon), and “Bear Country” (Best Short Subject Two-Reel).
Now, I’d say it’s even more impressive that Bong Joon-ho won all four of his Oscars for the same film, to the point where he apologized to the Oscar engravers that they had to write his name down so many times.
