Everything Everywhere wins best picture at the Oscars
Everything Everywhere All at Once has won the coveted best picture trophy at the 95th Academy Awards as Hollywood embraced an off-kilter story about a Chinese-American family working out their problems across multiple dimensions.
The movie claimed seven awards overall, including three of the four acting Oscars for stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis. Yeoh, the first Asian woman to win best actress, played the lead role of a stressed-out laundromat owner who finds she has superpowers in alternative universes.
“For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities,” the 60-year-old Malaysian actress said on stage. “And ladies, don’t let anybody ever tell you you are ever past your prime.”
Yeoh defeated Cate Blanchett, who was nominated for her role in Tar, in what was a rough Sunday night for Australian nominees at the Dolby Theatre.
