Director Bong Joon-ho's film "Parasite" swept this year's Chicago Film Critics Association Awards, scooping four honors on Saturday.
It was named the best film of the year and also won best foreign film, best director and best screenplay.
The association said the film won four honors for its "masterful send up of classism and capitalism."
"Parasite," the first Korean film to win the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, has recently been nominated for three Golden Globes -- best foreign language film, best director and best screenplay.
It is widely tipped to be shortlisted for best foreign language film at the Academy Awards slated for February next year.
