The Multiverse Makes a Splash at the Oscars with “Everything Everywhere All At Once”
A Clean Sweep
The multiverse was a major hit at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday night (March 12). The genre-twisting science fiction film “Everything Everywhere All At Once” swept most of the major categories, winning Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Editing and Best Original Screenplay.
A Refreshing Romp into Multiverse Madness
“Everything Everywhere All At Once” is a refreshing romp into multiverse madness, a domain mainly inhabited by the Marvel Cinematic Universe of late, but here the interdimensional fun was employed to tell the ingenious tale of an Asian-American immigrant who learns that her destiny lies in saving the fate of the universe.
Best Picture and a Multitude of Categories
Capping the night with a well-deserved Best Picture win over films like “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Avatar: The Way of Water,” “The Banshees of Inisherin,” “All Quiet on the Western Front,” “The Fabelmans,” “Elvis,” and others, “Everything Everywhere All At Once” shone in a multitude of categories.
The Daniels Take Home Best Director and Best Original Screenplay
“Swiss Army Man” filmmakers Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as The Daniels, were awarded the prize for Best Director against formidable opponents like Steven Spielberg, Todd Field, Martin McDonagh and Ruben Ostlund. The directing pair also won for Best Original Screenplay.
Brendan Fraser Takes Best Actor
The only acting category not won by “Everything” was Best Actor, which went to Brendan Fraser for “The Whale.”
Paul Rogers Wins for Best Editing
Rounding out the sci-fi spectacle’s seven-win night, Paul Rogers was honored for his adept cinematic cutting. He accepted the Oscar for Best Editing against acclaimed nominees like “Elvis,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Tár” and “The Banshees of Inisherin.”
