Oscars 2023: 'Everything Everywhere' All-Conquering At Oscars

The 95th Academy Awards were held Sunday night at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. “Everything Everywhere All At Once,” the proudly weird sci-fi movie from Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, swept most of the top categories, including best picture and directing.

Michelle Yeoh, that movie’s star, won the best actress award, becoming the first Asian actress ever to win that honor. The other lead acting prize went to Brendan Fraser for (“The Whale”), also a first-time winner.

Earlier victories went to “Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio,” which won for best animated feature; Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis, each first-time winners for supporting roles in “everything everywhere all at once”; “Navalny,” which picked up the best documentary feature statuette; the costume Designer Ruth E. Carter, who became the first black woman to have won two Oscars (this time for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”); “all quiet on the Western Front,” which won several awards in the first half of the show, including for best international feature, production design and cinematography; and Sarah Polley, who won the best adapted screenplay honor for “women talking.”
