“Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” won “Best Picture” at the 95th Academy Awards, completing an amazing awards season with the greatest honor in the film business. The picture won a total of seven Oscars in a variety of categories. Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, Original Screenplay, and Editing were awarded to the picture.
Michelle Yeoh of “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” is the first Asian to win the Oscar for Best Actress. Following a lengthy career in martial arts and action films such as “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Yes, Madam,” the recipient received the prize. According to Variety, Yeoh declared from the stage, “For all the little boys and girls who look like me and are watching tonight, this is a light of hope and possibility.”
Ke Huy Quan got the award for best supporting actor for his depiction of Yeoh’s stressed spouse in Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. Quan, a former child actor who starred in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies,” quit performing due to a lack of possibilities in recent years. As he collected his medal and revealed his personal experience, he fought back tears. “My adventure began on a boat,” he explained. “After spending a year in a refugee camp, I found myself on the largest platform in Hollywood. They claim that such events only occur in the movies. I cannot believe that this is occurring to me. The American dream.”
“Dreams are something in which you must have faith,” he continued. “I almost gave up on mine. Please continue to pursue your aspirations, everyone.” Jamie Lee Curtis received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She received the award for her performance in “Everything, Everywhere, Everything at Once.”
Jamie went up against Stephanie Hsu of Everything, Everywhere, All at Once, Hong Chau of The Whale, Angela Bassett of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Kerry Condon of The Banshees of Inisherin. She acknowledged the victory to “everyone who has supported the genre films I’ve created over the years.”
The wacky science-fiction comedy, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, focuses on Yeoh’s Evelyn Wang, a middle-aged laundromat owner who discovers she must connect with versions of herself from parallel universes to prevent catastrophic destruction while being audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
