Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Fans of the show know that we are. We are huge fans of the movie parasite Peres parasite parasite and this having this three weeks ago. Right but we are still feeling the glow off of parasites Huge died at the Oscars. The sweep it was. Yeah it was parasites just Night to shine in every major category was nominated was the story. I mean it was like the it was like this year's like every every Oscar. Your this is the story that comes out of it but it was like it's about this movie from South Korea coming and just blowing everybody away. I mean that's It's it's just an undeniably good film. And so I think it got. It's one of those. He's going Oscars where you know it. It was up all these major awards and certainly would get the foreign language or whatever. It's called the national feature right. Everyone's like that's you know that's a foregone conclusion but a lot of people were like. It should win best picture. It should win best director probably like maybe to invest director. But if there's probably not GONNA win best feature. That has never actually happened before right. We're going from never having seen a Korean film nominated for anything. Yeah right in the past and then all of a sudden having this one film win best picture best director best screenplay best original screenplay right and then also best or national feature and every single time the build continued with bond coming out again and again to thank everybody and probably get increasingly drunk. Charming is held by the way this guy I mean. He knew how to do award season like that whole circuit right but then every time we got up on stage is like through another charmer. Zinger at the audience. In Your Life. How can you give this guy all the awards you know? He's like unaffected. He's got a quirky sense of humor. I wanted to also shout out his interpreter and his interpreter. Sharon Choi is now the toast issues. I mean yeah she over. The course of the award season became also like a sort of minor celebrity in her own right right and so gained fan following. So I'm a fan. I'm if anybody else knows her we'd love to have her as a guest on the show hundred yet honestly I'm a fan of like just pretty much. Everybody who would anything into that movie? Yeah parasites key grips. Yeah best graphs. You know it's like it was. It was an end to end. Just glory of a film in so many ways and I think the thing that that it's most staggering for me is the degree to which I did not believe this was going to occur degree to which I was already pre apologizing on behalf of America and this this local awards show the Oscars because it seems so likely that the you know decades and decades of racist exclusion of Asian and asian-american stuff was going to continue and It just blew my face my skull. You know I I also was like I don't know by the time. Oscar night rolled around. I think people were pretty stoked about it about parasite a fever kind of hit the town And I'm speaking of someone who live in Los Angeles. So there's I mean like we marinate it. There's a there's they say that They're all these different. They're only there. Are there many seasons? But there's a war season so I was I was I don't know but I'd love allowed myself to feel like maybe this could happen. And then yeah and this probably setting myself up for complete crushing disappointment. And then I'd have something to complain about at the new Oscar but holy shit you know like at the end of the night and you're like Oh my God. There's a whole giant group of Korean setting on Stage Roy out. This is amazing. I believe Koreatown was was lit I mean my understanding is that bong the rest of the cast and crew did not make it to the Designated Party. That was until like one forty six. Am or something like that and then hit creatine afterwards. Yeah reporting is reported that they they shut down a restaurant and basically was there till six in the morning and well you know they deserved it and every every since I obviously was not an entirely undiluted moment of joy because you know it's something we talked about before but The awards went to Bong and went to the movie. They did not go to the actors deserved across the board. And the ensemble is so incredibly good and such a huge part of making this movie work yet. None of them were were recognized with a nomination individually right right right. I mean that's and that's been A. That's a trend. I mean any. Somebody pointed out that any any film that has been had nominated for multiple awards at the Oscars almost all of them have have been devoid of nominations for the actors right from Crouching Tiger to everything back to the last emperor saga millionaire life of Pi. It's like this is not. This is not a coincidence. Know what I mean so there is. There's something here where Asian performers Asian bodies are sort of like are invisible. Actually when it comes to sort of be recognized in this way I totally agree. I feel like there are a lot of reasons for it down to the sort of feeling in some ways that Asian films genre right even disregard. What kind of films are they actually are the the idea that Asian film is Genre? Not just Korean film or Japanese film attorneys when whatever but the Asian the relegates them to a category and a specific category that essentially flattens out the contributions required to make the film film right. Now I say this in part because I feel like the biggest reason these actors were not being reckoned. They're two huge reasons. Right one is that they were unfamiliar to Hollywood. Yeah as actress themselves we know. Hollywood is kind of a clubby place. Yeah if you've been nominated before you're more likely to be nominated again if you know. There's just a whole sense of expectation in the game right which is just like a crime considering someone like so gung. Ho is like you know. He's a national treasure. It right yeah. He's got a huge cannon of Eric shows an incredible amount of rain and yet I think the way they they see him as he did a great job in the sort of supporting actor role as part of an ensemble right like his own. Individual performance gets flattened out again. It's GonNa it's GonNa be funny because a lot of people are going to start like sort of discount on their path of discovering Korean cinema. Right this dude is in every movie for twenty years. But it's too late at least for for this award season but the other reason frankly is. I don't think that people know how to pronounce. People's names I or or write them properly and they've as a result and also frankly they don't speak English fluently in some cases loonies other people and it means that it takes more effort. You can actually give them press i. It was easier. I think for for Neon to sort of hype the film overall as a phenomenon. Then it was to actually try to do a serious effort to to get you know acting awards and I'm not putting it on them. Yeah Sort wasn't it wasn't a neon Yeah it would have been so you know. I'm not putting on them. But the way that the press works is Kinda need to be fed and if it's not easy for them to eat if they have to actually shell the shrimp Kinda pull the meat out of the crab legs. Then they won't eat it regards. How great the buffets metaphorically but they did walk away with the SAG. I mean they on some the Tom Board. Yeah but that's I recognize as actors. I mean it's recognizing their good actors is not recognizing collectively. That good acting happen right right. But it wasn't recognizing them as individuals being this stripping their individual Surv- identities outright. Yes it was applauding the Asians. Yeah and again. It's great and you know. I'm glad that they actually got that recognition collectively but let's also acknowledge that it's not just them but there were many performances by Asian actors in predominantly non English speaking films that effectively went right under the radar for the Academy Award
