The multiverse fantasy Everything Everywhere All at Once has swept the 2023 Academy Awards. Its score of seven Oscars includes many of the major categories: best picture, best director and best original screenplay for the Daniels duo (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), best actress for Michelle Yeoh, best supporting actress for Jamie Lee Curtis and best supporting actor for Ke Huy Quan.

It made for a historic night for Asian and Asian American representation at the awards, with Yeoh the first Asian to win best actress and Ke Huy Quan the first Vietnam-born actor to win an acting prize.

The German war drama All Quiet on the Western Front won four Oscars, including best international film, best cinematography, best production design and best score.

Best actor went to Brendan Fraser for The Whale.

Among the winning films that first screened to UK audiences at the BFI London Film Festival are The Whale; Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio, which won best animated feature; and Women Talking, which won Sarah Polley the award for best adapted screenplay.
