The 95th Oscars Bowed To Everything Everywhere All At Once
It's really been Everything Everywhere All At Once last night at the 95th Academy Awards ceremony, as this sci-fi comedy snatched seven Oscars in major categories, including Best Picture, Best Directing, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role, and Best Film Editing.
It is indeed a fabulous year for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (sollectivelly called The Daniels) who created not only an original and engaging story on the screens but also gathered an increadible film cast whose performance has been acknowledged as the best. "Ladies, don't let anybody tell you you are past your prime," a 60-year old Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh has told the crowd in her Oscar acceptance speech after she has beaten the tough competition in the category of the Best Actress in a Leading Role along with such amazing actresses as Cate Blanchett, Ana de Armas, Michelle Williams, and Andrea Riseborough. Her co-star in the movie Jamie Lee Curtis triumphed in the Best Actress in Supporting Role category, whereas Ke Huz Quan who has played alongside with Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones when being a child but then dropped out of the Hollywodian industry for a long period, celebrated his comeback with the Oscar for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role.
The Best Actor in a Leading Role category featured very strong performances, especially by Austin Butler nominated for embodying Elvis, Colin Farrell for his stunning performance in The Banshees of Inisherin, and Brendan Fraser who played the obese man trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter in The Whale. The Academy was in favour of the latter marking Fraser's fantastic resurgence.
The German movie streming on the Netflix platform All Quiet on the Western Front won in the category of the Best International Feature Film. It was also acknowledged in other three categories: Best Cinematography, Best Music (Original Score), and Best Production Design.
Guillermo di Torro's Pinocchio won the Oscar for the Best Animated Feature Film, Navalny - the Best Documentary Feature Film.
