Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Foreign Film, Best Animated Film and Best Original Screenplay

Parasite, from South Korea, took home the Best Foreign Film Oscar.  It’s probably my favorite foreign film of the past 10 years. And director Bong Joon Ho unexpectedly won Best Director.

Missing Link (available to stream on Hulu) won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Film but my pick for Oscar is Toy Story 4 (available to stream on Disney+ on February 5th).  The movie featured a couple of new characters that really energized the franchise, and as predicted took home the Best Animated Picture Oscar.

The Screenplay Oscars have some really stiff competition this year.  Parasite by Bong Joon Ho and Han Jin Wan for Best Original Screenplay and Jojo Rabbit won for Best Adapted Screenplay.
