The Academy Awards have announced the winner of the Best Picture Oscar: Everything Everywhere All at Once. The wacky superhero comedy was the favourite to take home the big prize at the 2023 Oscars. It was hailed as a milestone for diversity in Hollywood, with Asian-American themes and a predominantly Asian cast.
Everything Everywhere All at Once, starring Michelle Yeoh as a laundromat owner who encounters parallel realities while attempting to resolve her marital and tax issues, was written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, also known as "the Daniels".
With nominations for best film at the Baftas and best film (musical or comedy) at the Golden Globes, Everything Everywhere All at Once has already made a huge impression on the awards circuit. It also won the important Producers Guild best film award. In a competitive field of 10 nominees, Steven Spielberg's The Fabelmans, Cate Blanchett's Tár, and the German military drama All Quiet on the Western Front were all defeated by Everything Everywhere All at Once.
In addition to winning best film, director, original screenplay, lead actress, supporting actress, supporting actor, and editing, Everything Everywhere At Once won a total of seven Oscars at the prestigious event.
The historical epic All Quiet on the Western Front and Martin McDonagh's grim comedy The Banshees of Inisherin, both of which got nine nominations, including best picture, came close behind in terms of overall nominations.
The last time a movie stole the show at the Academy Awards was William Wyler's Ben-Hur, which created history in 1960 by becoming the first best picture winner to win 11 Oscars. Just two previous movies—Titanic in 1988 and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in 2004—have accomplished the same feat.
Everything Everywhere All At Once stars Michelle Yeoh as Evelyn, with Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, Jenny Slate, Harry Shum Jr., James Hong, and Jamie Lee Curtis in supporting roles.
