Everything Everywhere All at Once dominated Sunday night’s Oscars with seven awards, including best picture.
The time-twisting sci-fi film picked up the best actress trophy for Michelle Yeoh; best supporting actress for Jamie Lee Curtis; best supporting actor for Ke Huy Quan; best directing for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert; as well as best original screenplay and best editing.
Yeoh made history as the first Asian performer to win the best actress award.
While Asian actors made a strong showing, Black performers were shut out of the winners circle.
Going into the 95th Academy Awards, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Angela Bassett and Causeway actor Brian Tyree Henry were both nominated. Unfortunately, neither won.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever costume designer Ruth Carter made history with her Oscar in the best costume design category, and is now the first Black woman to win two career Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Sunday night.
Carter previously won for designing the costumes for Black Panther.
In her acceptance speech Sunday night, she paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, and her mother who died “this past week.”
The awards came a year after one of the most shocking moments in Oscars history, when eventual best actor winner Will Smith walked on stage and infamously slapped presenter Chris Rock for a joke Rock told about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Smith is banned from the ceremony for ten years, but he made it into Sunday night’s conversation.
Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted this year’s telecast, briefly joked about the actor while warning the celebrity-filled audience inside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to behave.
“We want you to have fun, we want you to feel safe and, most importantly, we want me to feel safe,” Kimmel said. “And if any of you get mad at a joke and decide you want to come up here and get jiggy with it, it’s not gonna be easy.”
The night also included performances by the nominees in the best original song category, including Rihanna and Lady Gaga.The trophy in that category went to the song “Naatu Naatu” from Indian action film RRR.
