On Sunday night, “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” won seven Oscars, including best picture, best actress, best director, best editing, best supporting actor, best supporting actress, and best original screenplay as captured by glamsquad
“Everything, Everywhere” had 11 nominations and was a heavy favorite going into the night.
Throughout the awards season, the film, which has become a major touchstone for Asian representation in American cinema, received nominations for acting, directing, and best picture from a variety of organizations.
Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert won the directing award. Michelle Yeoh was named best actress, making her the first Asian actress to receive the honor. Kwan and Scheinert took home the award for best original screenplay.
“Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” was not nominated for best actor, a category that features five actors who have never been nominated before for the first time since 1935. Brendan Fraser took home the award for “The Whale.”
Ke Huy Quan was named best supporting actor for his role in “Everything, Everything,” and Jamie Lee Curtis, who has been a film icon since the 1978 horror classic “Halloween,” won an upset.
This year’s ceremony featured four Asian actors competing in multiple acting categories for the first time.
Yeoh, 60, is the first woman of Asian descent to be nominated for best actress. This distinction has been made because, technically, Merle Oberon, who was of mixed British and South Asian descent, was the first to receive an Oscar nomination in 1935 for her work on the film.
Ana De Armas was the first Cuban actress nominated for best actress for her performance as Marilyn Monroe in the Netflix film “Blonde.”
Angela Bassett also made history at the ceremony by becoming the first actor to be nominated for a role in a Marvel film. Her performance as Queen Ramonda in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” earned her a nomination for best supporting actress. The film received an award for costume design.
Early on, “All Quiet on the Western Front” won four awards, mostly in technical categories.
This year’s ceremony received extra attention after Will Smith smacked Chris Rock during the previous year’s ceremony. Sunday night, host Jimmy Kimmel brought it up at every opportunity.
