Everything Everywhere All At Once won Best Picture at the 2023 Oscars on Sunday night, following wins for Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh, Best Director for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, and Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan.
Having already given several speeches over the course of the night, co-director Daniel Kwan kept his speech brief, saying “One of the best things we can do for each other is shelter each other from the chaos of this world.”
Everything Everywhere beat out nine other films nominated for Best Picture this year: The Fabelmans, Top Gun: Maverick, All Quiet on the Western Front, Tar, The Banshees of Inisherin, Triangle of Sadness, Elvis, and Women Talking.Though it didn’t manage to nab Best Picture, Netflix’s German World War I movie, All Quiet on the Western Front, was another big winner of the night, taking home four Oscars, including Best International Feature, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Score. But it couldn’t keep up with Everything Everywhere, which took home seven Oscars, including Best Director for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. Check out the full list of 2023 Oscar winners to see the other awards for the night.
The award for Best Picture was presented by Harrison Ford, and, in a fun moment, Ke Huy Quan reunited with his Indiana Jones co-star on stage to accept the award, giving the presenter a big kiss on the cheek. Stop, it’s too adorable! Finally, justice for Short Round!

It was a return to form for the Academy Awards, as the Academy attempted to redeem itself for what it described as an “inadequate” response to Oscar-winner Will Smith slapping presenter Chris Rock, an incident that shocked and rattled the A-list guests. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view) the 2023 Oscars featured no unexpected displays of violence.
And that’s a wrap on the 2023 Oscar season! Now, who’s ready to leave those stuffy Oscar movies behind and dive into summer movie season? Let’s go watch Adam Driver fight dinosaurs in 65!
