“Parasite” wins the Screen Actors Guild Ensemble Award and suddenly, the Best Picture landscape for the 92nd Academy Awards is much tighter. “1917” may have cleaned up at the Golden Globes and PGA Awards, but “Parasite” winning here definitely puts it back in the conversation.

“Parasite” continues to flex its supremacy, this time with the Georgia Film Critics Association Awards, winning Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Foreign Language Film.
Even the Alliance Of Women Film Journalists are honoring “Parasite” with their Best Film category, along with Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Non-English Language Film.
“Parasite” continues its sweep of the Awards Season, winning Best Film of the Year and Best Director of the Year along with Best Supporting Actor, Best Foreign Language Film, and Best Screenplay of the Year at GALECA’s Dorian Awards.
The Austin Film Critics Association continue the sentiment of this end of the Awards Season, awarding “Parasite” with Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, and Foreign Language Film.
