‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ Dominates Oscars With 7 Wins, Including Best Picture

'Everything Everywhere All at Once' was named best picture at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday, capping off an improbable awards season run by winning the movie business's highest honor.

The film, a gonzo adventure about a Chinese-American laundromat owner grappling with an IRS audit and inter-dimensional attackers, earned seven statues, including original screenplay and directing honors for its creators Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (collectively known as the Daniels). 
The victory is a triumph for A24, the indie studio that pushed the zany film to an impressive 100 million US dollar at the box office, a stunning achievement at a time when the market for arthouse movies has shriveled. The studio also managed the rare feat of nabbing all four acting honors - three of which were won by 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' and one by 'The Whale.'
