‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Wins Best Picture Oscar
Maybe the title Everything Everywhere All at Once was a premonition, referring to how the film was going to do at the Academy Awards.
Ultimately, the multiversal comedy became the top prizewinner at the 95th Academy Awards. It took home seven Oscars — including Best Picture. It also won Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for the Daniels, and it almost swept the acting categories, winning Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Best Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis), and Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan). (The only acting prize it didn’t win was Best Actor, which went to Brendan Fraser in The Whale.)
The film triumphed over a very competitive field of nominees: Steven Spielberg’s The Fabelmans, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water, Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin, All Quiet on the Western Front, Tar, Top Gun: Maverick, Triangle of Sadness, and Women Talking. And it capped off a huge night for the film; all the aforementioned wins plus Best Editing.
