Michelle Yeoh Makes History as “Everything Everywhere All at Once” Sweeps Oscars

HeadlineMar 13, 2023

The 95th Academy Awards were handed out in Los Angeles last night. Malaysian-born Michelle Yeoh made history as the first Asian woman to win best actress for her role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” which also won best picture.

Michelle Yeoh: “To all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities.”

Ke Huy Quan won best supporting actor for the same film, marking the first time two Asian actors won Oscars in the same year. Ruth Carter became the first Black woman to win two Oscars, after she took home the costume design trophy for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” last night, four years after winning for “Black Panther.” The winner of the best documentary was “Navalny,” about Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, his 2020 poisoning, imprisonment and his anti-corruption movement.
