Story highlights

The Korean comedy also took home the best foreign film award. 

Toronto Film Critics Association voted Korean comedy ‘Parasite’ as the year’s best film. It was a good night for the film and its cast as director Bong Joon Ho was also named best director and the film also took home the best foreign film award.

The second best was Netflix's ‘The Irishman’ that remained in the news for the larger part of the year for its cast and ‘Marriage Story’ that is now leading the Golden Globes 2020 nominations with six nods. 

‘Parasite’ has been making the right noise among movie enthusiasts as it showed a Korean poor family that scams a rich family to make ends meet.

The Toronto Film Critics Association picked actor Adam Driver as best actor and Laura Dern as best supporting actress for their roles in Noah Baumbach's ‘Marriage Story’. 

Lupita Nyong’o was the best actress for her performance in Jordan Peele’s horror film ‘Us’ and Brad Pitt was named best-supporting actor for his work in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ won in the best screenplay category.
