A few months ago, King Khan even took to his Twitter page to share his views on Parasite. He tweeted, “Just saw Parasite the South Korean movie on my kids recommendation. What a delightfully discomforting film. A bizarre look at social status, the state of the world…and the parasitic nature of the Materialistic Hope we all feed and live off!!”
Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite has won Oscars in the category of Best Cinema, Best Direction, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film.
On the other hand, Todd Phillips’ Joker which stars Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role was nominated in 11 categories. Joaquin Phoenix won the Academy Award in the Best Actor category.
