The 95th Academy Awards concluded successfully at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. In 2023, films produced by A24, an indie studio, made ripples during the awards season. The studio produced films like ‘The Whale’, ‘Marcel the Shell with Shoes On’, Paul Mescal starrer ‘Aftersun’, and many others. But, during the Oscars ceremony, ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’, produced by A24, emerged as the biggest winner.

There was no way a small, independent film like ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ could have emerged victorious in the last decade. With visibility, inclusion, and representation, the film became one of the trailblazers in Asian representation.
However, the merit of the film superseded every other aspect which was a bonus. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Tsu, Ke Huy Quan, and others. It was meritorious for the fact that it infused the multiverse theme with emotions dealing with migration anxiety and familial complexities.
During the 95th Academy Awards, every ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ win was special for the individuals and community as a whole. When Michelle Yeoh won the award in the ‘Best Actress’ category, she became the second woman of color to win the statuette.
During her speech, she said, “For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight this is a beacon of hope and possibility.” She added, “Ladies don’t ever let anyone tell you you are past your prime.”
Ke Huy Quan, the Vietnamese American actor also won the coveted trophy in the ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role’ category. At the top of his speech, he said, “Mom, I just won an Oscar.” Quan added, “They say stories like this only happen in the movies, I cannot believe this is happening to me.” Jamie Lee Curtis won her first Oscar in the ‘Best Actress in a Supporting Role’ category.
