It’s another glorious moment for every Malaysian as Michelle Yeoh won Best Actress at the 95th Academy Awards (Oscar)! Michelle really embodies the ‘Malaysia Boleh’ spirit wherever she goes!
We’ve been rooting for Michelle’s success since the nominees for Oscar were nominated months ago. Before bagging the Best Actress category early this morning, Michelle took home numerous awards for her outstanding performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once, a sci-fi and heartwrenching movie that became a phenomenon last year. Many predicted Michelle would win this award, and she did!
The ceremony was celebrated by many amazing stars with win-worthy movies in the nominations. However, Michelle made history as the first Asian to win the award and the second person of color after Halle Berry!
