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 Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Original Screenplay.
"Everything Everywhere" had 11 nominations and entered the night as a heavy favorite.
The film, a touchstone of Asian representation in American cinema, received acting, directing and best picture awards from various groups throughout the awards season.
Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert won the director's award. Michelle Yeoh won Best Actress, becoming 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 which for the first time since 1935 includes five actors who had never been nominated before. Brendan Fraser won for The Whale.
Ke Huy Quan won Best Supporting Actor for his role in Everywhere, and Jamie Lee Curtis, a movie icon since the 1978 horror classic Halloween, picked up a surprise win.
This year's ceremony saw four Asian actors compete in multiple acting categories for the first time.
Yeoh, 60, is the first woman of Asian identity to be nominated for Best Actress. This distinction was made because Merle Oberon, who was of mixed British and South Asian descent, was first nominated in 1935 for her work in the film The Dark Angel, but her heritage hid 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 the Netflix movie Blonde.
Angela Bassett also got another scoop at the ceremony, becoming the first actress to receive a nomination for a role in a Marvel movie. 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 at the start, mostly in technical categories.
