Ellen Texted Bong Joon Ho a Nude Photo, and He Hasn’t Responded


How many of you watched
the Oscars the other night? Did you watch it? [APPLAUSE] Unfortunately, I did not win. Fortunately, I
was not nominated. So it would have been
weird if I did win. But I didn’t win. I was at a– I hate talking about
stuff like this. But I was at a very,
very exclusive party, like a very exclusive
Oscar party. It was just a– I mean, small, very, very small. It was me and Portia. [LAUGHTER] And we were at our house. And we had an open bar. And we had red carpet,
because I spilled wine. [LAUGHTER] And it’s so much fun
to watch at home. We didn’t have to dress up. We just sat on our couch
in our finest sweat pants. And then, because I these
people, I’m watching the show. And then I’m texting as
things were happening. Because I’m friends
with these– because I thought Maya Rudolph and
Kristen Wiig were hilarious. So I’m texting them. And then I texted Brad Pitt. Because I loved his speech. And I love him. I was happy for him. I texted Martin
Scorsese’s eyebrows. [LAUGHTER] I texted Portia to
go to the kitchen to get some more popcorn. I sent a fax to Robert De Niro. Parasite was the big
winner of the night. And so I texted Bong
Joon-ho’s translator. And then Bong Joon-ho’s
translator would text him. And then Bong Joon-ho’s
would text his translator. And then Bong Joon-ho’s
translator would text me. Long story short,
I sent him a nude. I haven’t heard back. [LAUGHTER] I don’t know why. [APPLAUSE] Parasite won four Oscars. It’s a movie– did you
see Parasite, anybody? Yeah, yeah, it’s a
really good movie. It’s a movie about
poor people who have to live in a rich
person’s basement. And I watched that. And it really made me think,
I should check my basement. There were a lot of
good movies this year 1917, Once Upon a
Time in Hollywood. Did you see Jojo Rabbit? Anybody see Jojo Rabbit. I loved that movie so much
if you haven’t seen it, it is fantastic. And the writer and
director, Taika– Taika Waititi, his name
is very hard to say. Taika Waititi– I guess
it’s not once you say it. Taika Waititi, he won for
best adapted screenplay. And I wanted him here today. So I texted my producer,
said, bring him to me. And Taika Waititi is here. He’ll be here today later on. And you will love him. You will love this movie. And the star of the movie,
this 12-year-old adorable, amazing little actor,
Roman Griffin Davis, is here, as well. And so they’ll be here
a little later on. [APPLAUSE] Congratulations to all
the winners from Sunday.

  1. RUDE. ARROGANT. IGNORANT.

    I can’t believe Academy gave her its host few years ago.

    She has zero respect for beloved movies and worldwide cinephiles.

  2. DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO including SPOILER !!!!!!
    DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO including SPOILER !!!!!!
    DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO including SPOILER !!!!!!

  3. She is just expressing and describing how normal American people feel about unaccustomed things that are happening. I’m Korean. She is not a racist!!!

  4. She definitely seems uncomfortable with the results of Oscar this year.
    "It's a really good movie" thats all she could say about this film, the winner of cannes and oscar.
    Instead, she decided to make fun of director's not being fluent in english.
    Suppose someone focuses on your not being straight and makes jokes about it when you win a meaningful prize?

  5. I understand that Americans need some help and care in understanding outside world of America. There are many languages in globe. Hey American! Have you ever heard about Mexico? They have a language. We call it Spanish.

  6. I remember before she invited some kids from china on her show, and said she wanna learn Chinese…
    I remember that until now cause that moment i was inspired and it make me think she’s really open to everyone no matter what race the person is.
    I definitely can see a change of her attitude for Asian, im not sure is it for all asian or just for korean, anyway im sad.

  7. How well can Ellen speak other languages except English? Don't take it for granted that non-English speakers provide you with convenience in English.

  8. I don't think she intended to offend anyone but was insensitive. She did not seem to care much about the movie parasite I can see how careless she was when making jokes and comments on it.

  9. 여기 왜케 쿨한 한국인들 많은거지 ㅎㅎ 이게 인종차별이 아니라면 대체뭐란말임… 깐죽거리며 지껄이는 빻은 유머에 인종차별에 영환보지도 않았으면서 뱉어내는 대형스포까지… ㅎㅎ 하는짓 봐선 앞으로도 안볼듯

  10. This person showcases the epitome of American hypocrisy. Americans or Europeans (either white or black) who promote civil rights for LGBT or people of color show no moral consciousness when they discriminate against Asians.

  11. 인종치별까진 아닌것같은데 농담이 뭔가 별로임…. 그냥 좀 별 재미없음. 어쩌라는건지 모르겠음.

  12. 존 밀러 트윗 문제도 그렇고 기생충이 받은 게 맘에 안 든다는 늬앙스를 깔고 수상소감조차 통역에 맡긴 게 맘에 안들고 불만이라는 다수의 미국인들 속에 앨런도 있는 거죠. 영어는 단 몇 마디만 하고 그 잘난 로컬 시상식에서 생전 본 적도 없는 장면 ㅡ통역 거쳐 떠들어대는ㅡ이 미국을 파괴하는 거란 생각 자체가 얼마나 꼴통스러운지. 마찬가지로 그 속내가 드러난 rude한 처사지만 웃자고 치는 개그판이니 속으론 불편해도 웃고 넘어가는 거겠죠. 관대한척 쿨한척이 더 웃겨요. 레이시즘은 미국 사회 전반에 깔린 문젭니다. 겪어보지 않았거나 지능적이고 유연한 차별에 무딘 사람들이 꽃밭에 둘러싸여 지상낙원이나 상상하는듯 보이네요. 불편함이 없는 분은 그냥 그렇게 지내시면 될 일이죠. 그런데 불편한 걸 불편하다 말하는 놈은 자신 보다 덜 배운 놈이고 미국 문화도 개그 드립도 모르는 미천한 한국인이 창피하고 열등감 쩔어보인다고 말하는 사람들의 심리가 저는 더 오글거리고 창피하네요. 한국인만 미국문화를 이해해야한다고 주장하는 사대주의에 기함을 했습니다. 이 또한 스스로 계층을 나누고싶은 심리가 전혀 깔리지 않았다고 할 수 있겠습니까? 미국인이 조롱하는 것보다 한국인이 한국인을 벌레보듯 깔보는 게 더 웃기네요. 어떤 심리를 갖고 어떤 배경으로 살아왔길래 저런 단어들을 쓰는지. 베스트픽쳐까지 주면서 연기상엔 단 한 명도 노미조차 되지 않은 것 자체도 그렇고, 배우들 영어 못 하는 줄 알면서 시상식 밖에서 차에 올라타려는 배우들 붙잡고 한국인에게 한국어도 아닌 영어로 질문하고 입 한 번 못 떼는 장면들만 모아 담아 시상식 뒷모습이라며 보란듯 클립 올리고, 그 아랜 얘네들 영어 못 해 라며 지껄이고, 이게 다 지능적인 레이시즘입니다. 그 와중에 거기에 덧글 다는 한국인들은 지금 놀림을 당하는 줄 인식조차 못하고 있다는 게 참 기가 막힐 노릇… 차별이라 말하는 게 찌질한 게 아니라 차별을 당하면서도 너무 당연해서 인식도 못 하는 게 찌질한 겁니다.
    예민하다고 하는데 실제로 미국인들에겐 엄청 예민한 문제고요. 예민해야할 문젭니다.

    또, 단순히 토크쇼 내용만 보고 ‘basement’가 무슨 스포일러냐 짜증난다며 따지는 분도 있는데, 이건 이유를 길게 늘어놓지 않아도 그분이 분명히 영화를 보지도 않고 그냥 본인보다 못한 미천한 한국인이 분란 만드는 게 ‘짜증’이나신 것으로밖에 설명이 안 되네요. 그리고 이 시점에서의 스포일러는 악의적 범죄나 다름 없습니다.

    통역사 개그도, 스포도 다분히 영리하게 계산된 멘트로 보이네요. 아슬아슬한 선만 넘으면 매장당하는데 미쳤다고 선을 넘겠습니까? 선을 넘지 않았다고해서 차별이 아닐까요? 의중에 깔린 의도가 못된 거예요. 영화는 의도한 게 아니라면 본 척을 하는 거고. 봤다면 저렇게 생각 없이 쉽게 술술 나와선 안 되는 부분에 대한 스포거든요. 통역사 발언과 스포를 다른 맥락으로 봐선 안 된다고 봅니다.

  13. 집중해서 보면 알수있는 그 미묘한 표정과 말투. 언짢다는듯이 언급하는 태도. 아카데미에서 아시아영화가 4관왕을 했다. 큰 이슈임에도 불구하고 더러운농담으로만 구성하는 언급. 다른영화와 본인과친한배우들에 대한 긴 언급. 성소수자 엘렌씌^^ 농담잘해서 돈벌고 그자리앉아있으면서 본인이 서구전체를 대표하듯이 경쟁심느끼지마이소. 글고한마디더하자면 한글은 영어와 비교조차할수없는 과학적이고 체계적인 언어이고 모든 음성을 표현할수있으며 아무리 단어를 도치하고 문장을변형시켜도 뜻이 완벽히통하며 왕이 직접 창제한 유일한 언어이다. 오히려 세계공용어는 한국어가 돼야할정도이다. 니들처럼 빌려쓰고 갖다쓰고 변형된 조잡스런 언어가 아니다. 동사가 앞쪽에 위치해 말이끝나기도전에 문맥을알아차려 뒤의 단어가 덜중요해지는 시덥잖은 언어가 바로 니네언어 영어다. 제.발 무식하면 샷다마우스하자. 우리가 니네언어를 배우는이유는 영어가 영국넘들땜에 많은선진국에서 사용하고있기에 취직할라고 배우는거뿐이다. 색희더라

  14. Well I gotta say, Ellen's been one of my favorite talk show hosts,
    but this did go wrong in so many levels….

    she's one of the most influencial people in lgbt society,
    and definitely participates in many human rights activities,

    and ironically, can be so insensitive when it comes to making jokes about asians…

    guess it's proof how white people have come to care a lot about black ppl's rights nowadays,
    compared to how issues concerning asian discrimination have never really been dealt with properly

    plus, she was so wrong to spoil the film…..

  15. Learn Korean first, Ellen. I mean only speaking one language???? That's not cool for someone who casually jokes about language barriers. Ignorant people make a mistake and you are obviously one of them.

  16. This is an actual american mindset in deep subconsciousness.

    The language from the country that conquered the USA is the best language, which is called "English"

  17. james corden show 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  18. It is racist comment saying she sent a txt to Bong's translater. What she think he can't read english … it is typical asian stero type and racist comment. Im Korean and i am offended by her tasteless joke.

  19. Besides the texting joke and all, could you please put some kind of spoilers warning before the start of the video or put that on the title? The director himself was trying so hard making sure no one would reveal what happens in the second half of the movie when promoting the film. I'm just upset that you took away other people's chance to go watch Parasite and be genuinely entertained by the unexpected surprise which is the best part of the movie. Please Ellen and the staff, I beg you. Thank you in advance. From Korea 🇰🇷
