2020 Dorian Awards: ‘Parasite’ Named Film of the Year, Song Kang-ho Wins Supporting Actor

GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics named “Parasite” Film of the Year as well as Foreign Language Film of the Year. Bong Joon-ho took the prize for Director of the Year and supporting actor, Song Kang-ho, was recognized with a win.

“GALECA members strive to determine the best cinematic experiences through the distinct LGBTQ lens, and this year was particularly rich in options,” said GALECA President Diane Anderson-Minshall in a statement. “Yet when director Bong Joon-ho’s ‘Parasite’ practically swept our awards roster with five wins, I was not surprised. The dynamic, darkly comic drama about a poor family conniving to live the good life speaks to the times we live in, with vivid commentary on class, inequity and even climate change. ‘Parasite’ is a perfect film for the Trump era.”
