The 95th Academy Awards held on the 12th of March, at the Dolby Theater, in Los Angeles with Jimmy Kimmel returning as the host. History was made, with filmmakers and actors alike getting recognized for the amazing work they put in the previous year. On the downside, some nominees that were being rooted for lost in their categories. Thankfully, it was less scandalous than last year’s.

It was a good night for the A24 studios and its movie “Everything, Everywhere All at Once” as they swept up quite a number of awards. The categories won include best picture, director, original screenplay, lead actress, supporting actress, supporting actor, and editing. This made it the most awarded movie at the Oscars since 2008’s “Slumdog Millionaire” which had 8 awards. The lead actress for “Everything Everywhere”, Michelle Yeoh, became the first Asian woman to win an Oscar for the best actress category.

The German war drama, “All Quiet on the Western Front” was the next most-awarded movie of the night. It won in four out of the nine categories in which it had nominations – best international feature, best score, best production design, and best cinematography.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Angela Bassett lost the best supporting actress category to Jamie Lee Curtis. This left a lot of fans disappointed as they were rooting for the Wakanda Forever star.

Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tems, had the song “Lift Me Up” nominated for best original song, but sadly lost the category to “Naatu Naatu”, from the movie “RRR”. This did not stop the singer from making headlines thanks to her flamboyant outfit. Though she stunned on the red carpet, the dress sparked a variety of reactions as many people accused her of being inconsiderate of the people sitting next to her while others defended her.

It seemed like a good and exciting night, and I look forward to what the world of movies has in store for the following year.
