The 95th Academy Awards were highly dominated by the sci-fi comedy Everything Everywhere All At Once, with Michelle Yeoh becoming the first Asian woman to win best actress. Seven honors were given to the film altogether, three of which went to the actors Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

While the majority of the internet celebrated Yeoh for becoming the first Asian woman to win the Best Actress prize, some people were disappointed that Cate Blanchett didn’t win. Several others even stated that the actress’ failure to receive an Oscar for her performance in Tar “was an actual crime”.
