Makers of ‘Parasite’ had tried to portray the gap between rich and poor in the South Korean capital Seoul. Including the Best Film’s trophy, the movie has earned total four Academy Awards this year. Those are from Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film categories.

Last year’s most commercially successful and critically acclaimed film ‘Joker’ had mountains of exceptions this time for Oscar stage. However the first $1 billion earning R-rated film had to keep itself satisfied with only two Academy Awards.

Joaquin Phoenix, the lead actor of ‘Joker’ grabbed his first Oscar in the Best Actor category.

Renee Zellweger, portraying the legendary American actress, singer and dance Judy Garland in her musical biopic ‘Judy’, has won Best Actress’s Oscar this year.
