Another film was just added to the winner’s circle! 

Tonight, the 77th annual Golden Globes took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Parasite won the award for Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language.

The movie was nominated along with The Farewell (USA), Les Miserables (France), Pain and Glory (Spain) and Portrait of a Lady on Fire (France).

Parasite earned two nods, while both The Farewell and Pain and Glory received two nominations. This was the only nomination for both Les Miserables and Portrait of a Lady on Fire. 

Last year, Roma took home the statuette for Best Motion Picture, Foreign Language. Other nominees included Capernaum (Lebanon), Girl (Belgium), Never Look Away (Germany) and Shoplifters (Japan). 

Until 1986, this award was known as the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Film, meaning that any non-American film could be honored. In 1987, it was changed to Best Foreign Language Film, so that non-American English-language films are now considered for the Best Motion Picture awards. In this case, The Farewell (USA) falls under this category. 

Congrats to the cast and crew!
