Oscars 2023: The Wins, The Snubs, The Moments

Last night, Hollywood’s biggest stars came together on the freshly debuted champagne carpet to celebrate film and all its different avenues during the 95th annual Oscars. This year, diversity was showcased at its highest capacity throughout the show, with lesser-represented cultural groups winning big and making history while celebrating their artistic achievements in film. Stars such as Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Brendan Fraser, and more gave the public much to talk about from both their respective films and their contributions to the arts.


 


Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the award show kicked off without a hitch with the comedian making light of last year’s infamous slap that occurred between Will Smith and Chris Rock. Past the light opening monologue, the awards began to roll out. For the night’s first televised win for best supporting actor, it was Ke Huy Quan who walked away with the gold for his role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. In a moving speech, the star said “I spent a year in a refugee camp and somehow I ended up here on Hollywood’s biggest stage…This is the American dream!”


Following Ke Huy Quan’s lead, costar Jamie Lee Curtis won her first Oscar for best supporting actress. The veteran actress thanked her supporters and closed out her speech with an earnest “I just won an Oscar.”


 


Sprinkled throughout the show were performances that celebrated last year’s films soundtracks, with Sofia Carson joining Diane Warren for a tribute to women for “Applause”, Lady Gaga singing a stripped-down version of “Hold My Hand” for “Top Gun: Maverick”, and Rihanna sang “Lift Me Up” to celebrate “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”. Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava also lit up the stage with their performance of “Naatu Naatu” from “RRR”, which took home the award for Best Original Song.


 


Other big winners of the night included Brendan Fraser for his lead role in “The Whale” and Michelle Yeoh taking home the award for best lead actress for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”. Both stars gave touching tributes to their past experiences within the film industry and dedicated their awards to those who hope to take home gold someday too. Notably, Yeoh’s win was a historical victory, with the star being the first Asian woman to take home the prestigious award.


 


Overall, it was Everything Everywhere All at Once that swept throughout the night, taking home seven of the 11 awards the film was up for. Big-budget films from last year such as “Elvis”, “Blonde”, and “The Fabelmans” surprisingly left empty-handed. Despite this, last night proved to be a win for many: for the veterans of the industry, those who have been widely unrecognized by the awards committees, and for the artists who have injected a new way of looking at themes and films in a new light.
