They’ve conquered the top prizes at the PGAs, DGAs and SAG Awards and two Golden Globes and this afternoon, A24’s highest grossing movie of all-time and 11x Oscar nominated Everything Everywhere All at Once tookseven out of its eight Film Independent Spirit Award noms as wins, including Best Picture. The only nom the movie didn’t get as an award was Jamie Lee Curtis who was competing against Key Huy Quan in Best Supporting Performance.
Everything Everywhere All at Once beat out Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All, Todd Field’s Tar, Sarah Polley’s Women Talking and Ellie Foumbi’s Our Father, The Devil in the Best Pic Indie Spirit category.
A very emotional Michelle Yeoh continued her Best Actress win blaze with a win for Best Lead Performance (“I promise, no swearing tonight”). This after collecting Best Actress Comedy/Musical win at the Golden Globes, a Female Actor Lead at last weekend’s SAGs, and an ensemble win too.
The irony for the highest grossing indie movie of last year which grossed over $104M: Its journey started a year ago at its world premiere at the SXSW film festival.
The Spirits were gender neutral in their acting awards this year with men and women competing for supporting and lead awards.
Kicking off today, Key Huy Quan took Best Supporting Performance. He was one of ten nominated, even beating out fellow Best Supporting Everywhere nominee Jamie Lee Curtis.
Said the former Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Goonies star-turned Everywhere star, “I am so incredibly proud to be part of the Everything Everywhere All at Once family. I want to emphasize the word ‘family’ because everyone on set, and especially our amazing crew, took such great care of each other [that we] never felt like we worked for
