The Complete List of This Year’s Oscar Winners

Michelle Yeoh and Brendan Fraser

Comebacks, Everywhere, All At Once

If last year’s Oscars were marked by chaos and controversy, this year’s awards signaled a major course correction — not to mention several emotional returns to the limelight.

While not every favorite won quite as big as they maybe deserved (RIP, Banshees and Austin Butler), things went largely as expected. There were no wild upsets, and Will Smith’s pointed absence (he’s been banned for 10 years following last year’s infamous slap) saw to it that everyone’s tempers were kept well in check.

Brendan’s back

Brendan Fraser’s Best Actor win for the controversial The Whale solidified a Hollywood comeback decades in the making.

“So this is what the multiverse looks like!” he gasped as he arrived on stage, before thanking director Darren Aronofsky for “throwing me a creative lifeline.”

The 54-year-old has mainly kept a low profile since his late-90s heyday. He’s partly attributed his absence to injuries he picked up as an action star in movies like The Mummy — but he’s also alluded to his alleged sexual assault by former eight-term HFPA president Philip Berk.

The incident — which Berk denies — “was causing me emotional distress; it was causing me personal distress,” Fraser told Lee Cowan on CBS Mornings.

Awards, Everywhere, All at Once

As predicted, Everything Everywhere All At Once won big, scooping seven awards — including Best Picture, Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh, Best Supporting Actor for Ke Huy Quan, and Best Director for Daniel Scheinert. In a similar vein to Fraser’s, Quan’s acceptance speech was one of the night’s highlights.

“My mum is 84 years old and she’s at home watching. Mum, I just won an Oscar!” he began, speaking over a rapturous standing ovation.

“My journey started on a boat. I spent a year in a refugee camp and, somehow, I ended up here on Hollywood’s biggest stage. They say stories like this only happen in the movies – I cannot believe it’s happening to me. This is the American Dream.”

Quan referred to his long stint out of the limelight since his turn as Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom aged 12, and his role in The Goonies the following year.

“I owe everything to the love of my life, my wife Echo, who month after month, year after year for 20 years told me that one day, my time will come. Dreams are something you have to believe in. I almost gave up on mine,” he said.

“To all of you out there, please keep your dreams alive. Thank you so much for welcoming me back. I love you.”

Quan also gave a shout-out to Yeoh, who last night became the first Asian woman to win an Oscar for best actress.

“For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight, this is a beacon of hope and possibilities,” she said during her own acceptance speech. “This is proof that … dream big, and dreams do come true. And ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you are ever past your prime. Never give up.”
