“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is now the most-awarded film ever from major critics organizations, according to IGN.
This was announced ahead of the Oscars that are set to take place this Sunday.
The film is decorated with 158 accolades from critics organizations such as the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guilds Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards.
It overtakes “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” which has 101 major accolades according to IGN’s calculations. If every award and nomination were to be counted, Everything Everywhere All at Once would still beat out The Return of the King, according to IGN.
Currently, Everything Everywhere All at Once leads the 95th Academy Awards with 11 nominations, notably for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Lead Actress.
The film also made history at the Screen Actors Guild Awards with Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan becoming the first Asians to win in their respective categories of Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.
Everything Everywhere All At Once also swept the Independent Spirit Awards this past Saturday, winning every category it was nominated for including best feature, best director and the major acting categories.
