Oscar 2023 live updates: Complete list of winners
And no one was hit.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” dominated the Oscars on Sunday night, winning seven awards, including best picture, best actress, best director, best editing, best supporting actor, best supporting actress and best original screenplay.
“Everything Everywhere” had 11 nominations, heading into the popular night.
During awards season, the film, a major touchstone for Asian representation in US cinema, won for acting, direction and best picture from various categories.
Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert took home the directing award. Michelle Yeoh won best actress, making her the first Asian star to win the award. Kwan and Scheinert won best original screenplay.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” was not nominated for best actor, a category that for the first time since 1935 features five actors who have never been nominated before. Brendan Fraser won for “The Whale.”
Ke Huy Quan won best supporting actor for his role in “Everything Everywhere,” while Jamie Lee Curtis, who has been a movie icon since the 1978 horror classic “Halloween,” won an upset victory.
This year’s ceremony marked the first time that four Asian actors competed across multiple acting categories.
Yeoh, 60, is the first Asian woman to be nominated for best actress. This distinction was made because, technically, Merle Oberon, who was of mixed British and South Asian descent, was the first in 1935 to earn a nomination for her work on the film The Dark Angel, but she hid her heritage out of fear of discrimination in Hollywood at the time.
Ana De Armas was the first Cuban actress to be nominated for Best Actress, for her role as Marilyn Monroe in Netflix movie “Blonde.”
Another first for the ceremony was Angela Bassett, the first actress to be nominated for a role in a Marvel film. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The film won for costume design.
“All Quiet on the Western Front” won four early, especially in the technical categories.
This year’s show attracted more attention after Will Smith beat Chris Rock at last year’s show. The host Jimmy Kimmel brought it up every chance he could on Sunday night.
