The absurd multiverse sci-fi comedy secured an incredible Oscars sweep with seven wins, including the highest honour of all: Best Picture. Capping off a major night for Asian and Asian American representation, the the film's ultimately expected reveal as the night’s big winner was received to rapturous applause after it had already claimed wins for its editor Paul Rogers, two for its writer-director duo The Daniels, and a trio of wins for its incredible cast.

Former eighties child star turned Oscar-winning supporting actor Ke Huy Quan secured a comeback story only Hollywood could script, Jamie Lee Curtis cemented her status as a screen legend winning best supporting actress, and Michelle Yeoh made history as she became the first Asian best actress winner.

The only acting category it didn’t win was one in which it didn’t receive a nomination as, in another beautiful comeback story, Brendan Fraser was named best actor. Facing strong competition from Aftersun’s Paul Mescal, Living’s Bill Nighy, The Banshees Of Inisherin’s Colin Farrell, and Austin Butler, who’s performance as Elvis won over BAFTA, it was in fact Fraser who completed The Brenaissance and triumphed for his breathtaking, transformative performance in The Whale.

BAFTA big winners All Quiet On The Western Front and The Banshees Of Inisherin were somewhat snubbed across the pond. While the German anti-war epic did follow its seven BAFTA wins with four Oscar wins of its nine nominations, for Production Design, Cinematography, Original Score, and Best International Feature, it was a very disappointing night for Martin McDonagh’s back comedy starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, which was also nominated for nine awards, but left empty-handed.

There was recognition for the two biggest films of the year that brought audiences flooding back to cinemas with Top Gun: Maverick receiving an Oscar for its incredible achievement in Sound and Avatar: The Way Of Water for its groundbreaking Visual Effects.
