"Parasite" is first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture, as politics covers up the Oscars tonight


This was the night for politics at the Oscars, perhaps, as Kate Cohen predicted in the Washington Post (for the 92nd Academy Awards). 

At the end, “Parasite” , Boon Joong Ho’s satire in Korean, became the first foreign language film to ever win Best Picture.   While the rich family was away, the caretaking family found the gangsters in the bomb shelters set up anticipated Kim Kong Un.

Joaquin Phoneix, after winning best actor for “Joker”, gave an impassioned speech about not only intersectionality, but about our not being the only species (yes, orcas are people and should have the rights of humans) and even did a guilt trip about putting milk in his coffee.



Brad Pitt ranted about the impeachment "trial", as reported in many rags.
 
The Kodak Theater in LA is really big, like an opera house. They had rainstorms earlier this evening, and now the parties start.  WJLA Good Morning Washington will cover it at 4:25 AM Monday.
