It still blows me away that Parasite crushed at last year's Oscars.

I wonder if retroactively (say the last 20 years) they could say which Best Picture nominees or winners would not meet the standards.

Given that Moonlight beat La La Land for the best picture of 2017, it is amazing that the Academy thinks these directives are necessary.
