Why I love that Everything Everywhere All At Once won big at the Oscars

The 95th Academy Awards were held last night, where Everything Everywhere All At Once emerged victorious, with seven Oscars, for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing and three out of the four acting awards (Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan all won). And I’m thrilled about it. Why? Because Everything Everywhere is weird

At an awards ceremony that habitually bestows the bulk of its awards on high-profile biopics, historical dramas, well-timed ‘issue’ films and polished blockbusters, it was delightful to see a film that features hot dog fingers, googly-eyed rocks, a fight scene featuring a butt plug, a dimensional void inside a bagel, and a visibly animatronic raccoon voiced by Randy Newman run away with all the glory. (Check out these Cinema 4D tutorials if you're feeling inspired).
