Oscars 2023: Michelle Yeoh becomes first Asian best actress winner
Kathmandu: Michelle Yeoh became the first Asian woman to win best actress, as Everything Everywhere All at Once dominated at the Oscars.
The creative multiverse adventure won seven awards including best picture, director and original screenplay.
In the history of the Oscars, no other film has ever won best picture, best director and three acting prizes.
In Everything Everywhere All at Once, Yeoh plays a Chinese-American laundrette owner who is mired in a tax audit, stuck in a crumbling marriage and struggling to connect with her daughter Joy.
Yeoh is only the second woman of colour to win best leading actress, following Halle Berry for Monster’s Ball more than two decades ago.
