Everything Everywhere All At Once Is Biggest Oscar Winner Since Slumdog Millionaire
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” didn't win everything, nor did it win everywhere, but it sure did win a lot, and practically all at once. The high-concept sleeper hit earned over $108 million at the box office and a whopping seven Oscars — it’s not only the biggest Oscar winner probably since “Slumdog Millionaire,” but arguably the biggest Oscar winner in 95 years.
With wins for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress, the film earned the most above-the-line wins in the Academy Awards’ 95-year history The term "above the line" refers to the most prominent creative talent attached to the film, usually the actors, the writer(s), the director(s), and the producer(s).
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” may not have won the most Oscars ever, an honor that still goes to “Titanic,” “The Return of the King,” and “Ben-Hur,” but the film did win most of the biggest Oscars. More importantly, because it won more of those awards than any other film ever, its wins justify its official recognition as 2023’s Best Picture.
