Everything Everywhere All At Once has absolutely cleaned up at the 95th Academy Awards.
The quirky, mind-bending movie directed by The Daniels went into tonight's glitzy ceremony with a whopping 11 nominations.
It was the film that had the most nominations compared to any other represented at the annual event.
The A24 movie was up for Best Director, Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress (twice), Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Original Score, Best Original Song, and Best Costume Design.
Everything Everywhere All At Once was bound to win a couple of awards here and there, however it has absolutely dominated this year's Oscars.
Out of the 11 categories it was nominated for, it walked away with seven awards.
It won Best Picture, The Daniels won Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, Michelle Yeoh won Best Actress, Jamie Lee Curtis won Best Supporting Actress, Ke Huy Quan won Best Supporting Actor, and Paul Rogers won Best Editing.
It was a huge moment for Yeoh, who became the first Asian woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Similarly, Quan's win marked his humungous Hollywood comeback after a decades-long hiatus from being in front of the camera.
It was Curtis' first every nomination in her more than four decade-long career and she took out the top prize in a category that was stacked full of talent.
The closest competitor on the night was All Quiet on the Western Front, which won four awards.
The Whale took home two, and Top Gun: Maverick, Avatar: The Way of Water and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever won one each.
Everything Everywhere All At Once's performance tonight is the biggest sweep at an Academy Awards since 2008's incredible film Slumdog Millionaire.
That story of the Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums to become a contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? captivated audiences around the world nearly 15 years ago.
It was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and walked away with eight, including Best Picture, Best Director (Danny Boyle), Best Adapted Screenplay (Simon Beaufoy), Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Score, Best Song (‘Jai Ho’) and Best Sound Mixing.
But the award for the movie that has been nominated for and taken home the highest number of trophies at the Academy Awards goes to....*drum roll please*
It was 2003's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which won 11 awards from 11 nominations.
