Everything Everywhere All at Once wins best picture Oscar

By Randall Yip, AsAmNews Executive Editor

Hailed as the film that would bring more young people back to the theater and more of our youth to watch the Academy Awards, Everything Everywhere All at Once dominated Oscar night with 7 victories, including the prestigious best picture award.

Producer Jonathan Wang took time to honor his father “who like so many immigrant parents died young,” he said.

“He’s so proud of me. Not because of this, but because we made this movie with what he taught me to do, which is no person is more important than profits, and no one is more important than anyone else. And these weirdos right here supported me in doing that,” he said.

All the stars of the film including 94-year-old James Hong joined him on stage. Hong was singled out earlier in the night by host Jimmy Kimmel for appearing in over 600 movies and TV shows.

The Daniels got the last word in when they followed Wang on stage during the Best Picture presentation.

“The world is changing rapidly and I fear our stories are not keeping pace. Sometimes it’s a little scary that movies move at the rate of years and the world on the internet is moving at the rate of milliseconds,” said Kwan.

Along with best picture, the A24 film won for Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh), Best Supporting Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis), Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), Best Original Screenplay (The Daniels), Best Editing (Paul Rogers), and Best directors (The Daniels).
