Earlier this month everyone gathered next to their TV's to see the best-of-the-best win that prestigious golden statue, and all its glory. There were a lot of great performances, and films in 2019 including the Todd Philip's melancholy take of the joker in Joker, Sam Mendes' incredible 1917, Quentin Tarantino's penultimate film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and of course, Bong Joon-ho's masterful (best picture winner), Parasite. All these films had great performances from seasoned actors, along with a few novices as well, but what's next for these actors/actresses?

Brad Pitt snatched the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for playing Cliff Booth alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

His next actor role is rumored to be in Damien Chazelle's next film Babylon starring Pitt, and Emma Stone, details of the film are unknown, but the release date is sometime next year. Apart from this Pitt will most likely continue off screen as a producer for many upcoming projects.

Laura Dern took home an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for playing the smart, and sharp divorce lawyer, Nora Fanshaw, in Marriage Story across from Scarlett Johansson, and Adam Driver. Before this she was most notably known for her role in the original Jurassic Park, and this is exactly where you might see her next. Jurrassic World 3 will be the conclusion of the series, so it's only fitting that we see a reemergence of the classic cast, Dern included, the film is set to come out sometime next year.

Bong Joon-ho

Bong Joon-ho absolutely stole the show with not one, not two, but three Oscar wins. One for directing, one for original screenplay, and of course, one for Best Picture. Parasite swiped up the award season with Joon-ho's masterclass in directing, and writing. The win was a monumental moment for Joon-ho, and foreign films alike for its title as The first foreign film to ever win a Best Picture Oscar. Joon-Ho plans on remaining behind the camera as he works on the upcoming HBO adaptation of Parasite as a series.
