Michelle Yeoh and her Everywhere, Everything, All At Once co-star Ke Huy Quan experienced a historic SAG Awards night on Sunday. For her depiction of Evelyn Wang, Yeoh earned the first Asian Best Actress Film winner in SAG history, while Quan became the first Asian Best Supporting Actor Film winner.
The A4 movie secured its position as the front-runner going into the Oscars by winning four awards tonight, including Best Film Ensemble.
Yeoh gained notoriety as an action actress in the 1980s and 1990s, performing many of her own stunts, before reaching a global audience with movies like Tomorrow Never Dies, a James Bond film, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, directed by Ang Lee.
Although Yeoh was moving up the ladder, Quan was a rising young star. Among other memorable appearances, he is well known for his portrayals as Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Data in The Goonies. Before working behind the scenes, he took a sabbatical from Hollywood to acquire a film degree from USC.
With Everything Everywhere All at Once, he made a dramatic comeback as an actor, and ever since, he’s been the talk of the awards season.
