Illinois contestant wins Icon's Oscar contest

Alisha White, a contestant from Illinois, is the winner of the Icon's Oscars Contest. She had 7 out of 8 answers correct. 

The award for Best Picture went to Parasite. This is the first time that an international film has been awarded Best Picture. Parasite also was awarded Best Original Screenplay and Best International Film (this category was not covered in the Icon contest). The director of Parasite, Bong Joon Ho, was awarded Best Director.

Renee Zellweger was awarded Best Actress for her portrayal of Judy Garland in Judy. Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor for the movie Joker. Laura Dern won Best Supporting Actress for Marriage Story and Brad Pitt won Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood. Best Adapted Screenplay went to JoJo Rabbit.

We did not have to go to any of the tie breakers, but in case anyone was wondering the program was 3 hours and 23 minutes long. Toy Story 4 won Best Animated Feature and "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again" from Rocketman won Best Original Song.

Watch for the next Icon contest coming soon!
