"Parasite" won for best international feature and the film's director, Bong Joon Ho, won for best adapted screenplay, two of six potential Academy Awards. "Thank you, everyone. I am ready to drink tonight," said Bong, who won a standing ovation from the celebrity-packed audience. The international film category was formerly named best foreign language film but was changed this year to reflect a more inclusive attitude. "I applaud the direction that this change symbolizes," Bong said in Korean, speaking through an interpreter.

Despite again having no formal host, the Oscars ceremony started with a surprise appearance by former hosts Steve Martin and Chris Rock, who delivered a string of barbed jokes about the lack of female directors and people of color among this year's nominees.

"I thought there was something missing this year," said Martin.

"Vaginas?" quipped Rock, to loud applause.

Rock pointed out Cynthia Erivo, who played slavery-era freedom fighter Harriet Tubman in "Harriet" and who was the only actor of color nominated this year.

"Cynthia did such a great job hiding black people that the academy got her to hide all the black nominees," said Rock.
