“Everything Everywhere All at Once” capped its remarkable run through the Hollywood awards season Sunday evening by winning seven Oscars, including best picture.
The time- and space-twisting sci-fi tale had been nominated in a leading 11 categories. Besides best picture, it also won trophies for best actress, Michelle Yeoh; best supporting actress, Jamie Lee Curtis; best supporting actor, Ke Huy Quan; best directing, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert; best original screenplay, Kwan and Scheinert; and best editing.
Brendan Fraser won the best actor award for “The Whale,” beating out favorite Austin Butler in “Elvis.”
The World War I saga “All Quiet on the Western Front”, meanwhile, captured four Oscars on Sunday night — including best international feature film and cinematography — as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences handed out its awards at the Dolby Theatre.
“All Quiet” brought nine nominations into the evening, as did the Irish dark comedy “The Banshees of Inisherin” including best picture nods for both — but “Banshees” was shut out on this night.
“The Fabelmans” — Steven Spielberg’s largely autobiographical movie about a young boy who dreams of becoming a filmmaker — took seven nominations into the show, including best picture, best director, best actress (Michelle Williams) and best supporting actor (Judd Hirsch) — but it, too, was blanked.
Meanwhile, the best original song Oscar went to “Naatu Naatu,” from “RRR,” with music by M.M. Keeravaani and lyrics by Chandrabose. It beat out a couple of favorites — Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand,” from “Top Gun: Maverick,” and Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” among other nominees.
In a surprise, Lady Gaga performed “Hold My Hand” on the broadcast after it was originally announced she would be unavailable while shooting a movie.
Sunday night’s Oscars also came a year after eventual best actor winner Will Smith infamously smacked presenter Chris Rock for jokes Rock made at the expense of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Will Smith was subsequently banned from the Oscar ceremony for 10 years.
Jimmy Kimmel hosted Sunday’s show, which aired live on ABC.
