Everything Everywhere All at Once Wins Big at 2023 Oscars

Here is a list of all of the Academy Awards 2023 winners, with Everything Everywhere All at Once winning seven Oscars. / Everything, Everywhere All at Once Finds Meaning in the Multiverse life value family Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert Michelle Yeoh

Everything Everywhere All at Once was indeed everything and everywhere at this year’s Oscars, being among the big winners at the 2023 Academy Awards. The sci-if / action / family drama took home not only the award for Best Picture and Best Screenplay, but every acting category it was nominated in and gave “the Daniels” tiny golden men in the Best Director category. Basically, it won and it won big in seven categories. Obviously, this is another big win for cinema starring Asian actors, which has seen a surge of success in cinemas — even prompting EEAO‘s Ke Huy Quan to return to acting — and follows in the footsteps of 2019 Best Picture winner Parasite.

Aside from the domination of EEAO, the Academy Awards 2023 winners list featured very few surprises. Brendan Fraser, who has been the frontrunner for the award for his performance in The Whale since awards season started, scooped up the Oscar as was expected. All Quiet on the Western Front, Netflix’s World War I adaptation, quietly pulled in a few wins, including Best Cinematography, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever netted Marvel a win with a Best Costume nod, though Angela Bassett did not win Best Actress.

What stood out the most this ceremony? The actors winning all felt incredibly heartfelt and powerful. It was just a slew of people with long careers or making comebacks who probably never thought this would ever happen, and it felt more real than any Oscars has in a long while. It’s well worth a look at their acceptance speeches if you feel like tearing up a bit this morning.

Most importantly, however, is that we can all now watch RRR and say we are watching an Academy Award-winning film. The absolute banger “Naatu Naatu” from the film won Best Song. Feel free to get it stuck in your head while you read through the rest of the winners.
