Director Bong Joon Ho recently made history as he took home 4 Academy Awards (Oscars) this past weekend for his renown film, titled “PARASITE”.
During his acceptance speech for “Best Director”, he made a special shoutout to his fellow nominees, but most importantly, director Martin Scorsese!
Director Bong revealed that while studying film, he was deeply inspired by Director Scorsese’s quote, “The most personal is the most creative.” He turned the honor to Director Scorsese during his speech, leading to the whole crowd rising for a standing ovation!
Martin Scorsese gave the cutest thumbs up and appreciation to Bong Joon Ho for giving him the special shoutout during his own acceptance speech.
After the legendary interaction between two legendary directors, Martin Scorsese’s daughter, Francesca Scorsese, took to Instagram to mention the standing ovation.
She commented that although her dad may not have won “Best Director”, the standing ovation brought on by Bong Joon Ho’s speech was even “better than winning“!
Francesca shares the sweetest bond with her dad as she’s been his date for many of his award shows. They’ve proven time and time again that they’re complete couple goals and her gracious comment about Bong Joon Ho’s speech was as deeply moving as her father’s films!

OSCARS 2020 was a night to remember. I met @billieeilish , tripped a lot of people with my dress, went to 3 different afterparties, partied with my dad, and overall, got to experience that extremely moving standing ovation for him while right next to him. I think we can all agree that that was better than him winning the Oscar. He also LOVED @eminem ‘s performance for y’all’s information👏🏻 THANK YOU @oscardelarenta for this beautiful custom-made dress that had me feeling like a princess.
