Everything Everywhere All at Once dominated the 95th Academy Awards, which were held on Sunday night at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre.
Michelle Yeoh took home the Best Actress prize, becoming the first Asian woman and only second woman of colour to win the trophy. The film also won Best Picture, and Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for writer/directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.
Brendan Fraser cemented his comeback with a Best Actor win for The Whale, while Everything Everywhere stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan picked up Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor, respectively.
The night was not without controversy, with criticism aimed at Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Malala and a painful encounter between model Ashley Graham and an “obnoxious” Hugh Grant.
Many also felt that Angela Bassett deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. The award instead went to Jamie Lee Curtis, prompting what many viewers described as a “real” reaction from Bassett.
There were plenty of bold looks on the “champagne” carpet this year, including Rihanna who turned up in a T-shirt, trainers and bucket hat.

Who was the woman in the big white dress at the Oscars?

While many of us might be bummed we were only able to tune into the Oscars live broadcast, rather than experience the excitement in person, there are some positives to this.
Number one: our views of the stage were unobstructed! The same can’t be said for some audience members…
One woman made headlines for her beautiful white dress, although perhaps not for the reasons she might have hoped.
Wearing a gorgeous number, outfitted with a full-on shoulder flare (?) , Nigerian singer-songwriter Tems, who was nominated for her contribution as a songwriter on “Lift Me Up”, the song featured in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, became a major talking point of the night.
Twitter users couldn’t help but point out that her dress completely blocked the view of the stage from those sitting behind her.

The 2023 Oscars might not have been the Irish takeover the country had been rooting for. Nevertheless, Ireland prevailed in the Best Short Film category.
President Michael D Higgins has marked Ireland’s success at the Oscars by hailing a “remarkable” year for the Irish film industry.
The Irish President congratulated those behind An Irish Goodbye which took the award for best short film, as well as Richard Baneham, who was among those who won the Oscar for visual effects for Avatar: The Way Of Water.
