Oscars 2023: Film Diversity Celebration

Michelle Yeoh’s historic win as the first Asian winner for Best Actress brought Asian viewers to tears of happiness and smirks. The All, Everywhere, All At Once co-stars have brought the total number of Asians who have won an Oscar for acting to six in the awards’ 95-year history. For many Asian Americans, the seven Oscars, including Best Picture, seem like a watershed moment. Rebecca Loeffler, Screen International’s French film and television correspondent, has joined FRANCE 24 to learn more about the “celebration of film diversity” at the Oscars. And for Miss. Leffler, “variety” is all-encompassing: “For me, “Everything, Everywhere, and All at Once” really represents the diversity of the subject, and not just talent. It’s downright creative, weird, wild and crazy and really represents contemporary cinema!”
