LOS ANGELES (AP) — Subtitle this: “Parasite” is the first non-English language film to win Best Picture in the 92-year history of the Academy Awards.

Bong Joon Ho’s masterfully devious class satire took Hollywood’s top prize at the Oscars on Sunday night, along with awards for Best Director, Best International film and Best Original Screenplay. In a year dominated by period epics — “1917,” “Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood,” “The Irishman” — the film academy instead went overseas, to South Korea, to reward a contemporary and unsettling portrait of social inequality in “Parasite.”

True to its name, “Parasite” simply got under the skin of Oscar voters, attaching itself to the American awards season and, ultimately, to history. The win was a watershed moment for the Academy Awards, which has long been content to relegate international films to their own category.

Multiple standing ovations greeted Bong's several wins. “I am ready to drink tonight,” Bong said, prompting roars from the crowd. Unexpectedly called up again for Best Director, Bong saluted his fellow nominees, particularly Martin Scorsese, and concluded: “Now I'm ready to drink until tomorrow.”

As expected, Joaquin Phoenix, Renée Zellweger, Brad Pitt and Laura Dern took home the acting trophies.

"The Irishman," nominated for 10 awards, was the only Best Picture nominee that didn't win an award.

In the end, "Parasite" won four awards, "1917" won three and "Ford v Ferrari," "Joker" and "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood" each won two.
