CineMovie had the pleasure of presenting Best Original Screenplay to Bong Joon-ho and Han Jin Won for PARASITE, one of my favorite films from 2019. To get up on stage and talk to a room full of talented people like directors Taika Waititi, Denis Villeneuve, Bong, Olivia Wilde was nerve-racking but the cheers from the reveal of the winner made it all worthwhile.
