Everything Everywhere All at Once won best picture at the 2023 Oscars on Sunday night, one of seven Academy Awards it received, including prizes for its direction, original screenplay, editing and performances from actors Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Michelle Yeoh takes home the Oscar for Best Actress at the 95th Academy Awards for her performance in the absurdist comedy-drama, Everything Everywhere All at Once. Yeoh found herself up against the likes of Cate Blanchett for Tár, Ana de Armas for Blonde, Andrea Riseborough for To Leslie, and Michelle Williams for The Fabelmans.
Brendan Fraser won best actor for another A24 film, The Whale. His performance in the film has been considered a comeback for the actor who once appeared in Encino Man alongside fellow Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan. "I started in this business 30 years ago," said Fraser in his acceptance speech. "Things didn’t come easily to me, but there was a facility that I didn’t appreciate at the time until it stopped.".
Ke Huy Quan won the Oscar for best supporting actor for his role in Everything Everywhere, delivering an emotional speech to a standing ovation from the audience. "Mom, I just won an Oscar!" he said, noting that his road to the Oscars was long and unexpected. "My journey started on a boat," said Quan, who fled Vietnam with his parents in 1978. "I spent a year in a refugee camp, and somehow, I ended up here on Hollywood’s biggest stage. Stories like this only happen in the movies."
Jamie Lee Curtis took the Oscar for best supporting actress for the A24 film. "I know it looks like I’m standing up here by myself, but I am not, I am hundreds of people," said Curtis, who noted that her parents Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh were both nominated for Oscars, but neither won. She also called out the fans of the Halloween franchise, which made her a star after the first film was released in 1978. "To all of the people who have supported the genre movies that I’ve made for all these years , the thousands, the hundreds of thousands , we just won an Oscar!"
