The Academy Awards 2020 wrapped up in Los Angeles Sunday night, with Parasite winning Best Picture of the year.

Here’s a list of our favourite moments from the night:

1. Parasite takes over the Oscars

The South Korean dark comedy thriller took home four Oscars including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. The film also won the coveted Best Picture Oscar, making history for being the first non-English movie to win the honour.

2. Bong Joon Ho being his awesome self

Director Bong Joon Ho clearly won the night, not only with his collection of awards but also his to-the-point and modest speeches. For his best director award, he paid tribute to Martin Scorsese, his fellow nominee and clearly an inspirational figure.

He also gave us a endearing moment on stage after winnign his first Oscar. Look at him admire his award and chuckle to himself!

Billie began trending on Twitter even before she took the stage to perform a song as camera’s caught her scoffing at a skit being performed by comedians Maya Rudolph and Kristin Wigg. She is 18 after all.
