Hello!
It’s the biggest day of the year in movies: Oscar Sunday, the cinematic Super Bowl at the end of a long award-season. Tonight, the Academy will reveal which of its nine chosen contenders is (technically!) the year’s Best Picture.

Let’s take a look at all the reasons why 'Parasite’ deserves that honor more than any other 2019 film.
