Too much obsession over western validation. Like I was embarassed when Parasite won best picture and there were korean reaction videos where they acted like Korea won the world cup. The Academy doesn't even vote based on merit but campaigning which is why Harvey Weinstein's company got a film nominated every year until MeToo happened.
