As the Korean dark comedy thriller ‘Parasite’ swept awards at the precursors of Oscars 2020, movie lovers from across the globe were seen rooting for its big win at the 92nd Academy Awards, which is airing live from the Dolby Theatre, California.

The movie's surprise big win at SAG had us hoping to witness something similar tonight and our wish came true. Bong Joon Ho and Han Jin Won the Best Original Screenplay for 'Parasite'. 

While their victory had fans heaping praise on the non-English movie, Sandra Oh, who was also present in the audience, couldn’t hide her excitement when the winner for the Original Screenplay was announced. 

The 'Killing Eve' actress has always been vocal about the lack of representation on the big screen, being an ancient descendant herself. 

The viewers of the on-going ceremony who observed the actress' reaction, couldn't help but relate themselves with her. 

"SANDRA OH STANDING TO CELEBRATE PARASITE’S WIN IS OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE MOST PRECIOUS THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN," wrote one fan. 

"LOOK AT SANDRA OH BEING ALL PROUD WHAT A CUTIE," added another. 

However, some noted that it was a forced move on the Academy's end to cut to Sandrah when the Koran movie was announced as the winner only to establish diversity. 

"Still thinking about the oscars cutting to sandra oh during the parasite win.....why not cut to Jeff Bezos who is rich and horrible and who could (not saying should, but) be murdered," lamented one. 

Meanwhile, 'Parasite' fans are congratulating the Korean movie on its first Oscars win on social media. 

"WHOAA, ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY?? CONGRATULATIONS ALL PARASITE CREWWW!! LOWKEY I WAS HOPING PARASITE WIN THIS NOMINATION, but 1917 is also great. Like both of it deliver strong message. But i feel that Parasite is also memorable. Congratulations #Parasite," wrote a fan. 

Another stated, "Parasite is one of the best thrillers i've seen in my entire life and it's so original. Deserves the win."
