Michelle Yeoh Everything Everywhere All At Once Oscars 2023

It is no surprise that Everything Everywhere All At Once has earned this many accolades. The movie is emotionally touching and has a unique artistic ambition and style. It is also a deep exploration of parent-child relationships and the Asian-American experience. It also became the first A24 movie to cross US$100 million globally and its lead star Michelle Yeoh, has become the first Asian best actress nominee in the Oscars.

Yeoh and her co-star Ke Huy Quan also made history at the SAG awards. Yeoh became the first Asian best actress film winner in SAG history, while Quan became the first Asian male to win the outstanding supporting actor award in film. 

Currently at the Oscars alone, Everything Everywhere All At Once has 11 nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, Best Original Score and more. Fans can catch the Oscars and likely see the movie win more awards on 13 March 2023.
