Michelle Yeoh made history at the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday when she became the first Asian woman to win Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor Leading Role.
"Every one of you know, the journey, the rollercoaster ride, the ups and downs. But most important, we never give up." she said.
"This is not just for me, this is for every little girl that looks like me. Thank you for giving me a seat at the table because so many of us need this. We want to be seen, we want to be heard."
Going into the awards, "The Banshees of Inisherin" and "Everything Everywhere All at Once" both led with five nominations each, including four individual acting nods and one for ensemble. The two films tied a record previously set by 'Shakespeare in Love' (1998), 'Chicago' (2002), and 'Doubt' (2008).
'Everything Everywhere All at Once' took home the ensemble award, plus trophies for stars Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
The only film awards the movie didn't take out were Best Actor, which went to Brendan Fraser for "The Whale", and Best Stunt Ensemble which went to "Top Gun: Maverick".
Other winners at the Producers Guild of America awards ceremony Saturday night include Navalny, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, The Bear and The White Lotus.
