Jaime Lee Curtis beats Angela Bassett for Best Supporting Actress

Although it was one of the most evenly matched awards of the night, the Academy finally went for the actress considered the “scream queen” for her roles in the Halloween saga. The favorite in this category was Angela Bassett, nominated for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but Curtis’ work won out.


“Dad, Mom, I just won an Oscar!” exclaimed the actress as she held the award in her hands, being true to her usual good humor but with a quick speech in which, unlike Ke Huy Quan’s, there was less room for drama and more for fun.

Without a doubt, Everything Everywhere All at Once has become the film of the night. The Daniels’ film has managed to reach the top thanks to its good work as a revolutionary film of a genre. Undoubtedly, it has been one of the last big news for Hollywood in recent years.
