Genuinely amazing to see Bong Joon Ho do well this year - he's got a fantastic body of work behind him - I'll go on record to say that Snowpiercer is the best dystopian movie of the last decade and one of the best I've ever seen - and I'm really looking forward to catching Parasite later in the week.
Seems like the rest of the Oscars went pretty much as standard though. Good to see Taika Waititi get some writing recognition but my God the event itself is nauseating at times.
EDIT: Must've been a hell of a feeling to beat two personal idols to best director as well - to be able to name-drop what those two guys meant to him specifically kinda shows how much of an impact they've had on him as a film-maker. Especially Scorsese.

Shame he couldn't come back for the new Ghostbusters film. But it's still great he is coming back to the big screen.
A shame for the fans for sure but I imagine his reasoning for Afterlife was the same as the 2016 Ghostbusters film:
I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?
Not really worth his while coming out of retirement to pop up as window dressing in one scene of the new film. Whereas a whole rebooted franchise built around him, and all the things that go along with that, is a very different proposition.
