Oh. My. God. The Oscars happened and Everything Everywhere All at Once won not one, not two, but SEVEN awards. They won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Editing, and Best Original Screenplay.

The film is about “[a] middle-aged Chinese immigrant is swept up into an insane adventure in which she alone can save existence by exploring other universes and connecting with the lives she could have led”, according to imdb.com.

Ke Huy Quan, the winner of best supporting actor, gave an emotional speech discussing his past and present career in acting as well as his upbringing. He talked about his life as a child actor and how he never thought he could match the success of his childhood career compared to his adult career. He has come a long way.

The title of Best Supporting Actress was given to Jamie Lee Curtis. This was her first ever Oscar win in her 45 year long career. 

Michelle Yeoh is the first Asian performer to win Best Actress for her role as Evelyn Quan Wang. Yeoh’s career has been active since 1983 and is known for her other movies consisting of Crazy Rich Asians, Minions: The Rise of Gru, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and many more.

These are huge wins for Hollywood history as well as Asian American representation. This year’s Oscars will definitely be one to remember.
