Oscars 2020: Fans left RAGING as 1917 misses out to Parasite in historic Best Picture win

Fans were left raging when Sam Mendes’ 1917 missed out on the Best Picture gong during Sunday evening’s 92nd Academy Awards.

Twitter was awash with outrage when it was revealed that Bong Joon-ho directed film Parasite had won the prestigious award and made Oscar history as the first non-English movie to ever take away the prize.

While war epic 1917 still managed to scoop three awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, the Best Picture snub left fans insisting the Academy has become ‘farcical’ and was branded ‘a joke’.

No gong? Fans were left raging when Sam Mendes' 1917 missed out on the Best Picture gong during Sunday evening's 92nd Academy Awards

Parasite shocked as it became the first ever foreign film to win Best Picture, having also earned four gongs in total throughout the show.  

Angry fans took to Twitter to pen: ‘1917 snub totally. WTF. #Oscars… Oh wow. 1917 just got the worst snub in the history of the Oscars… cannot believe the snub by @TheAcademy to Sam Mendes and his #1917 masterpiece… 

‘What was bad at #Oscars ; 1. No host made it boring. 2. Joaquin Phoenix’s speech. Don’t get me started. 3. Captain Marvel and wonder woman looked ugly af. 4. Sir Elton John’s shoes. Yuck. 5. #1917 snub… 

‘SHOOK that 1917 didn’t win best picture/director , need to see Parasite ASAP #Oscars… Anyone else kinda hoping 1917 would win best picture? Because I feel like I missed something here #Oscars… 

Happy days! Twitter was awash with outrage when it was revealed that Bong Joon-ho directed film Parasite had won the prestigious award and made Oscar history as the first non-English movie to ever take away the prize

‘I was curious to see why Parasite got an Oscar for Best Picture over 1917, went to see the trailer and I’m still curious, couldn’t take anything away from that trailer… 

‘I wish 1917 had released in 2018! It also deserved the best picture Oscar… The Oscars are a joke ! 1917 not the best picture ? Total farce.’ 

It was not just negative views however, as some fans were happy about Parasite’s win, with users penning: ‘Glad the #Oscars didn’t go with the boring, safe choice of 1917 for Best Picture. Perhaps now Parasite has won, my local Cineworld will actually bother showing it… 

‘most winners were no surprise but good on Parasite for winning best picture along with a few other awards! of course the masterpiece that is 1917 got some too, and the amazing Jojo Rabbit got best adapted screenplay as it should #oscars’. 

Hurrah! There was clearly no animosity as Sam lauded Bong for his win

1917 tells the tale of two British soldiers in World War I, Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake, who receive orders they deem impossible. 

They are forced to head into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their comrades, including Blake’s brother.  

Parasite meanwhile is a class satire by auteur Bong Joon-ho, who also won best director, best original screenplay and best international feature, leaving Sir Sam Mendes empty-handed.

It was widely thought that the British filmmaker would win his second directing Oscar for the First World War epic, filmed to appear as one long take.

It would have come exactly 20 years after his win for American Beauty but he was pipped to the post for the Academy Award by director Bong, despite success at both the Baftas and the Golden Globes.

Bong is known for weaving social themes into stories that play as both comedies and thrillers. Bong has described the main themes of Parasite as ‘courtesy toward human beings, human dignity.’

Critical hit: She went on to present the Best Picture Oscar to surprise winner Parasite, which made history as the first-ever foreign language film to win in the category

Critical hit: While the film has been a critical hit since hitting theaters in November, with a whopping 99% Rotten Tomatoes rating from 393 reviews

The filmmaker appeared stunned to win the directing prize, saying: ‘After winning best international feature, I thought I was done for the day and ready to relax.’

He quoted Martin Scorsese, saying: ‘When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, ‘What is the most personal is the most creative’,’ and asked the audience to stand in honour of the veteran director.

He added: ‘I will drink until next morning.’ 1917 did enjoy success in the cinematography category, where Roger Deakins won his second Oscar in three years. It was also celebrated for sound mixing and visual effects.
