I don't usually care too much about awards shows, but I couldn't be happier with how this year's Oscars turned out. In 1992, Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan worked together on Encino Man. Thirty-one years later, the two were honored at the Academy Awards, with Mr. Fraser winning Best Actor for his performance in The Whale and Mr. Quan winning Best Supporting Actor for Everything Everywhere All At Once.
The hits continued for Everything Everywhere All At Once with two of my favorite actresses of all time winning their first Oscar - Jamie Lee Curtis for Best Supporting Actress, and Michelle Yeoh for Best Actress.
Everything Everywhere All At Once won a total of seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. I loved The Banshees Of Inisherin, but Everything Everywhere All At Once was absolutely deserving of all of the awards associated with it, and there was no one more deserving of Best Actor this year than Brendan Fraser.
