Data showing how movies that received the 'Best Foreign Language Picture' or 'Best International Feature Film' Oscar at the Academy Awards performed at the box office revealed that most films fail to generate more than ten million U.S. dollars domestically. However, 2020 winner 'Parasite' generated a total of 48.83 million U.S. dollars at box offices across North America, far outperforming other recent winners such as 'Ida', 'The Salesman', and 'A Fantastic Woman'.
