Bong Joon Ho ties Walt Disney’s record for most Oscars won in one night

Parasite, South Korean flick has created history at this year’s Oscars by winning both the Best Picture and Best international awards.

Film director, Bong Joon Ho has also tied the record of winning the most Oscars in one night.

On Sunday night of the 92nd Academy Awards, Boon Joon Ho won awards for best original screenplay, best international feature film, best director, and best picture.

Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasite’ is the 1st foreign language film to win the best picture at the 92nd Oscars—making history, and also it has paved the way for the recognition of all foreign films’ potential in the Hollywood industry.

After 65 years, Mr. Bong now matches the record set by Walt Disney in 1954 for most Oscars won in a single night by one person.

It was back in 1954, at the 26th Academy Awards, when Walt Disney won best documentary feature for “The Living Desert,” best documentary short subject for “The Alaskan Eskimo,” best short subject (cartoon) for “Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom,” and best short subject (two-reel) for “Bear Country.”

With the latest honour, Bong also becomes the ninth director born outside the US to win the best director in the past decade, meanwhile, he and Taika Waititi (who won best-adapted screenplay for “Jojo Rabbit”) became the first pair of writers of color to win the two screenplay awards.

At this year’s Oscars film “Parasite” directed by Boog first won the best original screenplay, which was written by Bong and Han Jin Won.

This is the first Oscar won by a South Korean film, and also the first one for Bong as well.
