Ms. Yeoh Wins Best Actor Oscar for “Everything Everywhere All At Once” at the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
Much like her “Everything Everywhere All at Once” character, Michelle Yeoh has become an unstoppable force – especially as she traipses through the 2023 awards circuit.
It was the first time that a woman of Asian origin had won an award for outstanding performance by a female actor at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
“Thank you for giving me a seat at the table because so many of us need this. We want to be seen so we can be heard. And tonight, you have shown us that it is possible, and I am grateful,” she said. In her final shout out, she said that her mom would be “eternally grateful” to see her win the award.
The cast of the film ” Everything Everywhere All at Once” won Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In addition to the awards they won, co-stars Jamie Lee and Ke Ho were also nominated in their categories.
The movie has also earned 11 Oscar nominations, including for best picture and Yeoh for best actress. Yeoh took home a Golden Globe award for her performance in the film last month.
The Malaysian Actress who has kicked ass on and offscreen for decades is now sweeping the Awards for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once.
After picking up a Screen Actors Guild award on Sunday (and dropping a well-timed F-bomb in her acceptance speech), the Oscars are one of her last stops on this impressive run.

How to Get Your Oasis: When I Know You Are Getting Your Peculiar, How Do We Look at Us?
We just have to rock the boat and say, ‘Look at us. Give us a chance. Guess what? We exist in your society. We are part of the society and very, very much an intricate part of this whole community. If we are not able to say, “OK, I’ll turn the other cheek”, then we won’t get more opportunities. Dang — no more turning the other cheek.
It’s not a new thing for her to receive an acknowledgement of her achievements and talent from people who have known her since she began her career. She’s getting her due now, in a world where men and white men tend to be seen as kind of the center of the universe, it’s really nice. But also something a little bit — again, why did it take so long?
