SAG Awards 2023 “Everything Everywhere at Once as well as Michelle Yeoh Win Big

The film was awarded the highest prize, as well as the lead actress, and two supporting trophies. “Abbott Elementary” and “The White Lotus” were voted the best television shows.

The Screen Actors Guild handed its the top prize for outstanding cast at the end of Sunday’s ceremony for “Everything Everything Everywhere at Once,” the hit sci-fi comedy which recently took the lead at in the Directors and Producers Guild Awards and is now an excellent frontrunner for best picture in the Oscars. Four of four acting awards went the “Everything Everywhere” actors, too.

However, will they also win in the face of Oscar?

The most secure option to do a repeat of the show will be “Everything Everywhere” comedian Ke Huy Quan, who has won the award for supporting actor in the form of SAG in the past and is collecting statuettes in the category throughout the season. On Sunday’s episode that aired live through YouTube and will be streamed exclusively on Netflix in the coming year, 51-year-old Quan delivered the most emotional speech to date.

After gaining fame as an actor for children in films such as “The Goonies” and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,”” Quan found few roles that were available to Asian actors. He also worked in the background, performing stunt choreography. He still made his SAG dues each the year hoping, and waiting his time to experience the resurgence that he’s now seeing.

“To all the people in the home watching, trying to get recognized,” Quan said, “please persevere because the spotlight may someday be able to find you.”

In a surprise win Co-star Quan Jamie Lee Curtis won the support-actress award against Golden Globe winner Angela Bassett (“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”) and BAFTA winner Kerry Condon (“The Banshees of Inisherin”) which suggests that this could be the most fluid season acting race.

“I realize that you stare at me like you’re thinking nepobaby, and I totally understand,” said a thrilled Curtis. “But the fact to the point is that I’m 64 years old , and this is truly incredible!”

Then, later in the evening, “Everything Everywhere” leading lady Michelle Yeoh won a crucial best-actress trophy against “Tar” Star Cate Blanchett, whom she recognized as a giant on stage.

“Thank you for allowing me a place at the table, because we all require such a place,” Yeoh told the crowd. “We are looking to be heard and to be heard. Tonight you’ve shown us that it’s feasible.”

While the SAGs have been a prestigious award for Asian actors from television series, Yeoh was the first Asian woman to win the award for best actress in a category for a movie as well as Quan is the only Asian male performer to be recognized for films as well.

The sole actor from film to win the award who wasn’t the film “Everything All Over the World” Was Brendan Fraser, who mounted a comeback to the best actor category by transforming his character of “The The Whale.” While “Elvis” Star Austin Butler earned best-actor prizes at BAFTA and the Golden Globes, Fraser wasn’t likely to be a winner at the latter event, because he repeatedly accused the former Globes director Philip Berk of groping him in 2003, and had stated that he would not attend the awards ceremony. (Berk denied the allegations.)

As with other night’s top performers, Fraser spoke about the highs and lows of the Hollywood profession “I’ve been on that wave recently and it’s been strong and great,” he said, “and I’ve had it knock me down to the ocean bottom.”

The track record of SAG’s involvement in the Oscars is a bit shaky, but not entirely untrue. In the past the four SAG winners won during the Oscars and Jessica Chastain’s SAG award with “The The Eyes of Tammy Fye” has helped propel her to the top of the broad-ranging best-actress category. However, the year prior just two out of four SAG winners went on to win in the Oscars.

However, the most significant conclusion of this year’s SAG event is the fact the fact that “Everything everywhere,” which cost only $14.3 million and earned around $100 million in the world It is most likely going to win best picture The films that won top awards at the DGA Awards, the PGAs along with the SAGsin other words the three main guilds just Ron Howard’s “Apollo 13” (1995) did not achieve an Oscar.

The season kicked off in the beginning “Everything Everywhere” directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan were shocked to learn that their quirky film was drawing awards talk. However, with just two weeks until the most prestigious night of Hollywood The real surprise will be if “Everything Everywhere” is the Oscars final winner.
