Trump Mocks 'Parasite' for Oscar Wins, Neon Studios Issues Epic Response

Donald Trump is lashing out at the movie Parasite for winning the top awards at the Oscars.

During the president’s rally in Colorado, he addressed the awards show and criticized the Academy for awarding a movie from South Korea.

“How bad were the Academy Awards this year? Did you see it?” he asked the crowd. “The winner is… a movie from South Korea! What the hell was that all about? We got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. Let’s get Gone With the Wind. Can we get Gone With the Wind back, please?”

“So many great movies… the winner is from South Korea!” Trump continued. “I thought it was best foreign film, right? Best foreign movie. Did this ever happen before?”

Parasite actually made history as the first foreign-language film to ever win Best Picture at the Oscars.

Neon Studios, the studio that distributed Parasite in the U.S., issued an epic response to the comments.

“Understandable, he can’t read,” the studio tweeted.

Barbra Streisand Reacts to Eminem's Oscars Surprise, 17 Years After Presenting His Award

Barbra Streisand was the presenter of the Best Original Song category at the 2003 Oscars and she announced Eminem as the winner that year, though he wasn’t there to accept the award.

Eminem won the award for writing “Lose Yourself” for his hit movie 8 Mile. He didn’t attend because he reportedly didn’t think he would win as it’s an awards show for actors.

17 years later, Eminem made a surprise appearance at the Oscars to perform the winning song in a special moment dedicated to how music can change a movie.

“@eminem I had voted for your song too! Was really looking forward to handing you the award. Next time! 😜,” Barbra wrote on Instagram on late Monday night (February 10).

Visual Effects Society Slams the Oscars for That 'Cats' Moment

James Corden and Rebel Wilson appeared on stage in costume as their Cats characters and skewered their movie while presenting at the 2020 Oscars.

The co-stars presented the award for Best Visual Effects and joked, “As cast members of the motion picture Cats, nobody more than us understands the importance of good visual effects.”

As you’re probably aware, the movie Cats was critically panned and a lot of the criticism had to do with the visual effects.

Now, the Visual Effects Society is slamming the Oscars for that whole bit.

“Last night, in presenting the Academy Award for Outstanding Visual Effects, the producers chose to make visual effects the punchline, and suggested that bad VFX were to blame for the poor performance of the movie Cats. The best visual effects in the world will not compensate for a story told badly,” the organization said in a statement.

“On a night that is all about honoring the work of talented artists, it is immensely disappointing that The Academy made visual effects the butt of a joke. It demeaned the global community of expert VFX practitioners doing outstanding, challenging and visually stunning work to achieve the filmmakers’ vision,” the statement continued.

“Our artists, technicians and innovators deserve respect for their remarkable contributions to filmed entertainment, and should not be presented as the all-too-convenient scapegoat in service for a laugh,” the society added. “Moving forward, we hope that The Academy will properly honor the craft of visual effects – and all of the crafts, including cinematography and film editing – because we all deserve it.”

Here's Why Bong Joon-ho Only Gets to Keep 3 Out of 4 Oscars for 'Parasite' Wins

The movie Parasite won four awards at the 2020 Oscars and while it seems filmmaker Bong Joon-ho would be eligible to receive all of them, he only gets to take home three trophies.

The South Korean film won the awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film – and Bong was on stage to accept all four of them.

Bong is the producer, director, and co-writer of the movie, so he gets to take home the awards for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. While you’d think that the producers and director would take home the Best International Feature Film award, this award is actually not given to any specific person.

The Oscars’ Best International Feature Film award is considered to be an award for the country where the film is from. For this category, each country is allowed to submit one film that it believes to be the best film of the year from that country. The Oscar statue for this award is often displayed in museums in the country that wins.

Winning three Oscars is pretty cool though!

Mindy Kaling was wearing some serious jewels on her neck at the 2020 Academy Awards last night.

The 40-year-old star revealed to Variety on the red carpet that her Chopard necklace was actually identical to the one that was stolen in Ocean’s 8.

“I felt happy to wear it,” Mindy shared with the reporter and even admitted that it came with its’ own security guard.

Mindy guessed that if the necklace had its’ own security that it had to cost “north of $100,000″ but she didn’t want to know how much is really cost because she “thought it would scare [her] to know.”
