The apex of award show season is ending but not before the biggest night of Hollywood gets its shine. The 95th Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, aired Sunday, March 12th live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles hosted by Jimmy Kimmel; for the third time. The event honored the best in film from 2022 in categories that range Best Actor, Original Song, Best Supporting Actress, Costume Design, and the coveted Best Picture.
Everything Everywhere All at Once (EEAAO) was the big winner of the night taking home seven awards out of the eleven categories the film was nominated in including the top honor, Best Picture. Michelle Yeoh took home her first Oscar for her role as Evelyn Wang in EEAAO making her the first Asian actress to win in the Best Actress category and second woman of color to win in the category after Halle Berry’s 2002 win for Monster’s Ball. Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan also won their first Oscars for their roles as Deirdre Beaubeirdre and Waymond Wang, respectively, in EEAAO in the Supporting Actress and Actor categories.
All Quiet On The Western Front came in second, winning the most Oscars with four wins, and The Whale took home two including Brendan Fraser’s first win as Best Actor. Ruth E. Carter became the first Black woman to win a second Academy Award taking home an honor for Costume Design for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She won her first Oscar doing costume work for Black Panther in 2019.
Of course, there were some upsets of the night. Angela Bassett was the first actress to be nominated for a Marvel movie role as Ramonda in Black Panther and many thought she would take home the Best Supporting Actress award, but she didn’t. Austin Butler’s role in Elvis was also predicted to win an Oscar but he was not announced for Best Actor. Tár, The Banshees of Inisherin, Aftersun, and The Fabelmans all noticeably didn’t take home any Oscars. The night however was incident free as Hollywood celebrated film.
