Bong Joon-ho's film "Parasite" has a high chance of winning best foreign film at the Academy Awards, the New York Times reported Wednesday.
The daily ranked the film third on its list of best movies of this year, saying no other film makes viewers feel "sadder about the state of the world and more jubilant about the state of movies."
"Parasite" won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and has been praised as one of the biggest achievements in Korean film history.
Gold Derby, an American awards prediction website, currently ranks "Parasite" fourth on the list of possible winners for best picture award and third for best director.
The film has been submitted for the best foreign film category at the Oscars, which are awarded in Los Angeles in February.
