On Sunday night, Hollywood's elite gathered at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles for the 95th Academy Awards, an annual ceremony that honors the best in the film industry. This year's awards ceremony was filled with surprises, but perhaps the biggest winner of the night was the proudly weird sci-fi movie, "Everything Everywhere All at Once," directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. The film swept most of the top categories, including best picture and directing, leaving audiences in awe.

"Everything Everywhere All at Once" was not the only surprise of the night. Michelle Yeoh, who starred in the movie, won the best actress award, making her the first Asian actress to win that honor in the history of the Academy Awards. Another first-time winner was Brendan Fraser, who won the best actor award for his role in "The Whale." Both of these actors gave powerful performances in their respective films, and it was a joy to see them receive recognition for their hard work.

A24, the studio behind both "Everything Everywhere All at Once" and "The Whale," also had a big night. The studio's success proved that smaller studios can still compete with the big players in the industry.

Other winners of the night included "Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio" for best animated feature, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis for supporting roles in "Everything Everywhere All at Once," "Navalny" for best documentary feature, Ruth E. Carter for costume design in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," and Sarah Polley for best adapted screenplay for "Women Talking."

"All Quiet on the Western Front" also won several awards in the first half of the show, including best international feature, production design, and cinematography. The film is a classic from 1930 that has stood the test of time.

The 95th Academy Awards showcased the talent and creativity of the film industry. It was a night of surprises and first-time winners, proving that anyone can achieve success with hard work and dedication. Congratulations to all the winners of the night, and we look forward to seeing what the future holds for the film industry.
