“President Donald Trump told a rally in Colorado on Thursday that he does not think "Parasite" should have won the Academy Award for Best Motion Picture because it is a South Korean film.
"How bad were the Academy Awards this year, did you see? ‘And the winner is . . . a movie from South Korea,’" Trump told the audience at his reelection rally in Colorado Springs. "What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade, on top of it they give them the best movie of the year?”
"Parasite" was directed by Bong Joon-ho and tells the story of the impoverished Kim family, who infiltrates the house of the super-rich Park family by taking on various jobs and scheming to eventually elevate their own living situation. Because the film is a black comedy thriller, a number of unexpected twists challenge the Kim family’s plans. The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards and won four including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film."
