“Everything Everywhere All at Once” Wins Big at The Oscars
Sunday night, 12 March, saw “Everything Everywhere at Once” (EEAAO) walk away with a historical Oscar haul at the 95th Academy Awards
The much-lauded, 2022 absurdist dramedy won seven statuettes out of 11 nominations at the prestigious awards ceremony which was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
EEAAO made a clean sweep of the Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing categories.
Actress Michelle Yeoh became the first woman of Asian descent to win Best Actress in a Leading Role – a historic moment as she became the second person of colour to win the category (after Halle Berry for her work in 2001’s “Monster’s Ball”).
Ke Huy Quan could not hide his overwhelming gratitude upon accepting his supporting actor award. The 51-year-old actor started his career as a child actor in the ‘80s, appearing in popular films such as “The Goonies” and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”; Quan had left acting for roughly two decades before starring in EEAAO.
“Dreams are something you have to believe in. I almost gave up on mine. To all of you out there, please keep your dreams alive,” he said joyfully.
