'Everything Everywhere All at Once' appears to have won everything at every award show all at once, capping off an incredible season by making history at the Academy Awards and becoming the most-awarded Best Picture winner since 2008's 'Slumdog Millionaire.' In addition to Best Picture, the Asian-led film picked up Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh—who was the first Asian person to ever win the award—Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan, Best Supporting Actress for Jamie Lee Curtis, along with Best Director, Film Editing, and Original Screenplay.
That's a total of seven Oscars, which comes close to the eight 'Slumdog Millionaire' picked up in 2009. Only three other films have passed that number in Oscars history ('Ben-Hur,' 'Titanic,' and 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King'). 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' was actually nominated for a total of 11 awards, but had two actresses in the same category so it would have been impossible to win them all anyway. The night was a historic moment for Asian stars who celebrated from around the world.
The impact of Asian actors and filmmakers, and actors and filmmakers of Asian descent, has never been so prominent. With no fewer than four Asian actors nominated for prestigious Academy Awards and even more for behind-the-camera recognition, the gifts that different perspectives can bring are as clear as ever. Of course though, this isn't the first time that Asians and people of Asian descent have made their mark on the world of Hollywood.
Let's take a look at just a few of the greatest Asian talents that you need to look out for on the big and small screens. Simply click on!
