Oscars 2020: Winners
The Korean film Parasite made history Sunday at the 92nd Academy Awards, becoming the first non-English language film to win the prestigious Best Picture Oscar, writes The Hollywood Reporter. The film won four Oscars overall, including Best International Film, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director for Bong Joon Ho. As he accepted his director's award, the Korean reached out to pay tribute to fellow nominees Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Earlier, while accepting the Best International Feature award, Ho got a laugh from the crowd when he said, "I'm ready to drink tonight" through his interpreter. There were no real surprises in the four major acting categories, as Brad Pitt won Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Laura Dern won supporting actress for Marriage Story. Renee Zellweger took him the Best Actress Oscar for Judy, while Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor Oscar for Joker. Elton John and Bernie Taupin won the Best Original Song for "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" from Rocketman, while Pixar picked up the Best Animated Feature Oscar for Toy Story 4.
Ozzy Osbourne Reveals That He's Been Battling Parkinson's Disease
Ozzy Osbourne revealed Tuesday on Good Morning America that he's been battling Parkinson's disease. "I'm no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore 'cause it's like I'm running out of excuses, you know?" the 71-year-old rocker told Robin Roberts in a sit-down with his famous family. "It's been terribly challenging for us all." He added that his Parkinson's diagnosis came to light after he suffered a debilitating fall last year that required surgery. "I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery, my legs keep going cold," he explained. "I don't know if that's the Parkinson's or what...I'd never heard of nerve pain, and it's a weird feeling." Meanwhile, wife Sharon says, "It's not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it's like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day." The silver lining, however, has been that the Osbournes have only grown closer through Ozzy's health problems. Says daughter Kelly, "We've all learned so much about each other again--and it's reaffirmed how strong we are."
