In the center of a rant throughout a rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday, President Trump, for some motive, took a detour into the film enterprise with the intention to complain that the South Korean satire “Parasite” gained the Oscar for Best Picture as a substitute of an American movie.
Also, for some motive, he known as the award “best movie of the year” and appeared to counsel that Oscar voting is a matter of nationwide commerce coverage.
“By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards? And the winner is a movie from South Korea,” stated Trump. “What the hell was that all about? We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of it, they give him the best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. Can we get ‘Gone With the Wind’ back please? ‘Sunset Boulevard.’ So many great movies, the winner is from South Korea. I thought it was best foreign film, right? Best foreign movie. No! Did this ever happen before?”
Trump additionally insulted Brad Pitt, calling the “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” Oscar winner “a little wiseguy.” No, we don’t know what meaning both.
“Parasite” distributor Neon wasted nearly no time responding to the presidential criticism. “Understandable, he can’t read,” the studio tweeted.
Neon’s succinct dis referred to the truth that “Parasite” is subtitled, one thing director Bong Joon Ho joked through the Golden Globes is the “one-inch barrier” audiences want to beat. After his movie’s spectacular 4 Oscar wins, which additionally included Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, Bong stated he realized that audiences might have already got.
“I feel like I was already a little late. People already were overcoming these barriers, from streaming services, YouTube, social media. And in the environment that we’re currently living in, I feel we’re all connected,” Bong stated. “So naturally, I feel we will come to a day when a foreign language film or not, it doesn’t matter. A foreign language film like this won’t be much of an issue hopefully.”
But, not less than so far as Neon sees it, apparently Trump nonetheless hasn’t.
That stated, to reply his query, this truly hasn’t occurred earlier than. “Parasite” is the primary non-English language movie to win Best Picture on the Oscars. Now you already know!
