A24, ‘Everything Everywhere’ sweeps film category at 2023 SAG Awards2 min read
A24 just won the Screen Actors Guild Award.
Rounding out the night thanks to “Everything Everywhere All at Once” (the multiverse movie took home four wins at the 2023 SAG Awards ceremony) and Brendan Frasier’s win for “The Whale.” It thus marks the first time in history that one studio has captured every major film award (the stunt award went to “Top Gun: Maverick”).
The big night kicked off with Jamie Lee Curtis (who won for supporting actress) for the feature “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. Kay Huey Kwan later took home the trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. Next up was Michelle Yeoh, who won for Actress in a Leading Role and then closed the show with a win for Best. A performance by a cast in a motion picture. Those four wins for “Everything Everywhere All at Once” broke the SAG record for most wins by a single film at the show.
And that’s not the only historic moment that happened during the SAG Awards thanks to the film. Kwan’s win makes him the first Asian male to win the film acting award at the annual guild ceremony since its inception in 1994. “It actually feels a lot different now than it did before,” a tearful Kwan said on stage. “So a big thank you to everyone in this room who contributed to these changes.”
Yeo became the first Asian actress to win a film award for a leading role. “It’s not just for me, it’s for every little girl who looks like me,” Yeoh told the crowd.
