Parasite makes history as it dominates 2020 Oscars

Parasite was the big winner at last night's Oscars ceremony. 

The South Korean drama made history, becoming the first non-English language film to take the top prize of Best Picture. It also won Best Director for director Bong Joon-ho, Best Original Screenplay and Best Foreign Language Film. 

In the acting categories, the ceremony was a repeat of last week's BAFTAs. Renee Zellweger picked up Best Actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy, while Joaquin Phoenix was named best actor for Joker.

Brad Pitt and Laura Dern scooped the supporting acting awards for their roles in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Marriage Story respectively.

1917 won three awards, with other winners including Bombshell, Ford Vs. Ferrari, Toy Story 4 and Jojo Rabbit.
