2020 Oscars: Parasite And 1917 Receive The Most Wins

Parasite nabbed four awards this year, including Best Picture.


This year's Oscars have come to a close, and there were some big moments throughout the evening. Bong Joon Ho's Parasite was the first non-English film to win Best Picture, and Joaquin Phoenix was the second actor to play the Joker to win and Academy Award. But what many people want to know is what movie won the most awards for the 92nd Academy Awards?

There were more than a dozen movies up for more than one award this year, but nothing was nominated more than Joker, which landed a total of 11 noms, one more than 1917, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and The Irishman. However, when it came to the 2020 Oscars, the South Korean film Parasite ended up getting the most wins. Check out the most winning movies from this year.

Most wins at the 92nd Academy Awards

  • Parasite (Four wins)
  • 1917 (Three wins)
  • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Two wins)
  • Ford vs Ferrari (Two wins)
  • Joker (Two wins)

Parasite grabbed the Oscars for Best Film, Director, International Feature Film, and Original Screenplay. You can check out the acceptance speech for Parasite's Best Film win below.

Second place went to 1917, coming in with three wins, including Best Visual Effects, Cinematography, and Sound Mixing, even though it was one of the three most-nominated films of the year.

One of the most shocking things of the night wasn't what won; it was what didn't win. Martin Scorsese's The Irishman was up for 10 awards--two of which were Best Actor in a Supporting Role--and it didn't win any of them. It was the only movie to be nominated for Best Picture that didn't win in any of its nominated categories.
