South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s social satire “Parasite,” about a poor family of hustlers who find jobs with a wealthy family, has won the Cannes Film Festival’s top award, the Palme d’Or.

The win for “Parasite” marks the first Korean film to ever win the Palme. The awards were handed out in a ceremony Saturday after being chosen by a jury presided over by filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu.

The festival’s second place award, the Grand Prize, went to French-Senegalese director Mati Diop’s “Atlantics.” Diop was the first black female director in competition at Cannes.

Best actor went to Antonio Banderas for Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain and Glory” and best actress went to Emily Beecham of Britain for “Little Joe.” Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne won best director for “Young Ahmed.”

History could be made when the top award of the Cannes Film Festival, the Palme d’Or, is handed out Saturday night.

The Palme d’Or is decided by a nine-person jury, headed this year by the filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu. Their deliberations are done in secret but milestone victories could occur if some of the festival’s most acclaimed films were to win.

If French director Celine Sciamma’s period love story “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” won, it would be the first time a female filmmaker has won the Palme d’Or outright.

Pedro Almodovar could make personal history by winning the Palme for “Pain and Glory.” Though he’s been one of Europe’s pre-eminent filmmakers for decades, the 69-year-old Spanish director has never won Cannes’ top award despite being in the running five times before.

Also in the mix is Bong Joon-ho’s class satire “Parasite,” about a poor family of hustlers who find jobs with a wealthy family. A win for “Parasite” would mark the first Korean film to ever win the Palme d’Or.
