Stars of the film seemingly couldn’t hold back their excitement as they all took to the stage to accept the coveted Best Picture award, the last gong of the night.

Everything Everywhere All at Once beat out major blockbusters including Elvis and Top Gun: Maverick for the Best Picture gong.

“I just want to say thank you so much to everyone here. You’ve all inspired me,” co-director Daniel Kwan said, after he made his final appearance on stage.

“One of the things that I realised growing up was one of the best things we can do for each other is shelter each other from the chaos from this crazy world we live in.”

The film won seven of its 11 Oscar nominations at the 2023 Academy Awards, including Best Actress, Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.

The award-sweeping film trails closely behind some of the most iconic movies of all time, including Titanic and Ben Hur, which both made history with 11 Oscar wins in total.

Director Kwan also spoke pensively about the state of movies and Hollywood while accepting his film’s final win of the night.

“The world is changing rapidly. I fear that our stories are not keeping that pace. Sometimes it’s a little scary knowing that movies move at the rate of years and the world on the internet is moving the rate of the milliseconds,” he said.

“I have great faith in the stories. These stories have changed my life. They’ve done that for generations. I know we’ll get through this. Have a great night guys.”

The film also made history at the 95th Academy Awards, after Best Actress winner Yeoh became the first Asian woman in history to take home that award.
