Michelle Yeoh is the first Asian woman to win Best Actress at the Oscars in 2023.
The Oscars were dominated by 'Everything Everywhere All at Once', and Michelle Yeoh became the first Asian woman to win best actress.
Seven honors were given to the imaginative multiverse journey, including the best picture, director, and original script. "For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching today, this is a beacon of hope and potential," Yeoh said as she accepted her statuette.
"And ladies, don't let anybody tell you that you are ever past your prime."
Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis, who both starred alongside Yeoh, took up the awards for supporting actor and actress, respectively. There has never been another movie in Oscar history to win best picture, best director, and three acting awards.
She received her Oscar award alongside co-star Ke Huy Quan, who delivered an emotional speech on stage.
The 60-year-old eventually overtook early front-runner Cate Blanchett after seeing a late surge in momentum in this year's Oscar contest.
Only Halle Berry, who won for Monster's Ball more than 20 years ago, and Yeoh are women of color to get the award for best leading actress.
