“Everywhere All at Once” Wins 7 Oscars, Including Best Picture (Full Winners List)

Oscar Winners 2023 List

Oscar Winners 2023 List

On March 12, 2023, at the 95th Academy Awards, “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” capped up an unlikely awards season by taking home the top prize.

The film’s makers, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert won a combined seven awards including original writing and direction, for their zany tale of a Chinese-American laundrette proprietor facing an IRS audit and extraterrestrial invaders (collectively known as the Daniels).

This is a huge win for A24, the independent studio that helped propel the offbeat film to a staggering $100 million at the box office. This is especially noteworthy considering the declining market for arthouse films.

The studio also accomplished the unprecedented accomplishment of taking home all four acting awards, three of which went to “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” and one to “The Whale.”

Who are the Winners of the Oscars Awards in 2023?

Many people made their way back or reevaluated their positions that evening. Michelle Yeoh, star of “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” made history by being the first Asian woman to win best actress for a major motion picture.

After a successful career in martial arts and action films like “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and “Yes, Madam!” she was finally recognized for her efforts. She said:

“Ladies, don’t ever let anyone tell you that you are past your prime. For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibility”.

In “The Whale,” Brendan Fraser played a morbidly obese man who tries to get in touch with his estranged daughter. He won the award for best actor for his performance.

Fraser, who was once a popular actor thanks to his roles in popcorn movies like “George of the Jungle” and “The Mummy,” had spent the past decade and a half away from the public coping with health and personal issues.

His victory extends his incredible comeback streak. Fraser said:

“I started in this business 30 years ago and this – they certainly didn’t come easily to me, but there was a facility that I didn’t appreciate at the time until it stopped. He thanked his director Darren Aronofsky for throwing me a creative lifeline and hauling me aboard.”

Ke Huy Quan’s performance as Yeoh’s frantic husband in “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once” earned him a nomination for best-supporting actor.

Quan, a former child actor who had roles in films like “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “The Goonies” had stopped performing due to a lack of work. While accepting the medal, he choked back emotions as he talked about his life.

He said:

“My journey started on a boat. I spent a year in a refugee camp and somehow I ended up here on Hollywood’s biggest stage. They say stories like this only happen in the movies. I cannot believe it’s happening to me. This is the American dream.”

He added:

“Dreams are something that you have to believe in. I almost gave up on mine. To all of you out there, please keep your dreams alive.”

Jamie Lee Curtis, daughter of Hollywood royalty Janet Lee and Tony Curtis and a seasoned lead in horror films like “Halloween,” won best supporting actress for her role as an Internal Revenue Service inspector in “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.”

Curtis addressed her family’s entertainment heritage, saying, “my mother and my father were both nominated for Oscars in various categories,” before dedicating her statue to “all of the individuals who have supported the genre movies that I’ve created for all these years.”

She finished her speech with a choked-up “I just won an Oscar”.
