When the producer Jonathan Wang took the stage to accept the award, 

he began by expressing gratitude to A24 for supporting their quirky film in theaters for a year.  

He then thanked his father, who unfortunately passed away 

at a young age like many immigrant parents. 

Wang shared that his father was proud of him not because of the trophy in his hands,  

but because of the movie they made together. His father had taught him an important lesson: 

that profits should never come before people and that everyone should be treated equally. 

The highly acclaimed film, Everything Everywhere All at Once, written and directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert,  

led the pack with an impressive 11 nominations going into the night - the most of any film. 

It faced tough competition from other notable films such as All Quiet on the Western Front, 

Avatar: The Way of Water, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, The Fabelmans, Tár, Top Gun: Maverick, Triangle of Sadness, and Women Talking.
