This year’s Oscars was full of surprises, featuring some familiar and unfamiliar faces in the movies world. The ceremony took place on the 9th of February. The movies that were nominated in most of the categories were Joker (11 nominations), and Once upon a time… in Hollywood with a total of 10 nominations.


Probably, the biggest winner and the biggest surprise was the North Korean movie, Parasite. It won four Oscars, including best picture, which is the first time ever in the history of the Oscars that a non-English movie wins the Oscar in this category. The biggest loser, eventually, was the movie The Irishman. Even though the movie was included in ten nominations, it won none of them.

Best Actor and Actress

Now, let’s take a look at all the Oscar winners this year. The Oscar for best male actor expectedly got the main protagonist in Joker, Joaquin Phoenix. It would have been the most upsetting moment if he didn’t win it, though. His role in this movie was so persuasive and completely emotional that it enables all of the viewers to enter the psyche of the character and justify or pity his actions. This is not Phoenix’s first nomination. He has already been nominated for four Oscars, but this is the first time he won one.

The winner in the best female actor is Renee Zellweger for the role of Judy in the same-titled movie. It is a biographical movie where Zellweger beautifully portrays the character, showing all of the critical moments in the last years of her life. This is not her first Oscar in her career. Renee also won the Oscar for the best female supporting actor for the movie Cold Mountain. Brad Pitt got his first Oscar in his acting career, even though he won the award as a producer for the movie “12 Years a Slave” back in 2013. Best supporting actress award got into the hands of Laura Dern, where she is playing the role of a divorce lawyer. It’s not the first time she is nominated, but it’s the first time that she wins an award.

Other Categories

The predictions for who will win in the best director category were wrong for the first time since 2012. The director of Parasite, Boon Joon earned this award, thus gaining the first Oscar for North Korea even on the Oscars. The movie Parasite is the definite winner on the Oscars this year, winning four out of six nominations
