This was the start of the Parasite Oscar steamroll. And MAN was it deserved. Not to take away from Bong Joon-ho's masterful directing work on this film, but his screenplay is its most awe-inspiring piece of this picture. The yarn he wove and the tones he blended were INGENIOUS! And it was purely joyous to watch him acknowledged for it. The 4-award Bong train kicked off delightfully here.
And yes, I predicted this, as did most experts.
