The 92nd Academy Awards ended with a surprise, as “Parasite” took home the best picture prize, serving as a capstone for a remarkable run that began with winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes last May, and concluded by making history on the Oscars stage as the first foreign language film to west best picture…

The Oscars by the numbers…

–By film: Parasite – 4… 1917 – 3… Once Upon a Time in Hollywood – 2… Joker – 2… Ford v Ferrari – 2… Judy – 1… Jojo Rabbit – 1… Marriage Story – 1… Little Women – 1… Bombshell – 1

The female-led film also struggled overseas, where it bowed to $48 million from 78 markets for a global start of $81.3 million.

–The pic was never meant to score a mega-opening since it is a spinoff and sports an R rating. Still, the Warner Bros. and DC title had been tracking to start off with at least $50 million to $55 million in North America and $60 million or more
