At a rally in Colorado on Thursday, the President criticized Parasite's Best Picture win at this year's Oscars, seemingly objecting to an worldwide film taking the top prize.

"How bad was the Academy Awards this year?" The crowd responded with loud boos. "And the victor is... a movie from South Korea!"

During the president's rally in Colorado, he addressed the awards show and criticized the Academy for awarding a movie from South Korea.

The first foreign language film ever to win the best picture prize in the 92-year history of the awards, "Parasite" - a genre-scrambling thriller that explores the divide between rich and poor - won four Oscars in total, including awards for directing, original screenplay and best worldwide feature.

"Was it good? I don't know", he admitted. "Let's get "Gone with the Wind" back, please?" Trump said, to loud cheers.

Trump then appealed to see more traditional films like "Gone with the Wind" (a best picture winner) and "Sunset Boulevard" (not a best picture winner) to win the big prize. The novel from which the film is adapted described the Ku Klux Klan as a "tragic necessity" and made such free use of derogatory slurs for black people that the NAACP got involved with the production of the movie. I thought it was best foreign film.

In response to the president's criticism, Neon, the distributor of "Parasite", fired back on Twitter at the president's apparent aversion to subtitled movies: "Understandable, he can't read".

He took a shot at Brad Pitt for his Oscars speech, calling him a "little wiseguy". "He's a little wise guy", Trump said of Pitt.

Pitt said in accepting the award that he got more time to speak, 45 seconds, than former national security adviser John Bolton received at Trump's Senate impeachment trial.

"They told me I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week", Pitt said.
