Jamie Lee Curtis wins for her performance as Deirdre Beaubeirdra in The Daniels’ Everything Everywhere All At Once. She bested Oscar contenders Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin) and Hong Chau (The Whale). This is Curtis’ first Oscar nomination and win in a 4 decade career. The award was presented by Troy Kotsur and Ariana DeBose, who took home the Oscar last year in the same categories.
Everything Everywhere All At Once is both a family drama and sci-fi action adventure, about a Chinese American woman’s estranged relationship with her daughter Joy, played by fellow Best Supporting Actress nominee Stephanie Hsu.
Curtis was predicted to take home the win, especially after winning the SAG award for Best Supporting Actress. She got a standing ovation as she took to the stage to accept her award.
When receiving the award, Curtis delivered a heartfelt speech, dedicating her award to “all of the people who have supported the genre movies I have made all these years, the hundreds and thousands of people: we just won an Oscar! Together!” She ended her speech by saying: “I just won an Oscar!”
