`Everything Everywhere All At Once`, `The White Lotus` sweep SAG Awards
The metaverse adventure film “Everything Everywhere All At Once” won the Best Ensemble Award at the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night, Variety reports.
Michelle Yeoh’s lead actor also broke records, becoming the biggest film winner in the show’s history, in almost every category, Variety adds.
But SAG emphasizes the small screen as well as the big one, Variety notes. The awards season favorite, Abbott Elementary, a sitcom about teachers at an underfunded public school, won the picture for best TV comedy ensemble. Another award-winning series, “The White Lotus,” a sharp look at the overprivileged guests of an Italian resort, took home the honor for Best TV Drama Ensemble.
`Everything Everywhere Everything at once‘, one of the few recent indies to break through in a big way at the box office, dominated the evening with four wins, followed by ‘The White Lotus’, who will be remembered by Jennifer Coolidge, with two wins.
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” continued to gain momentum through a marathon awards season, taking top prizes heading towards the Oscars in two weeks, adds “Variety.”
This weekend it scooped the Producers Guild Award and last weekend it won the Directors Guild Award for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the film duo behind the absurdist story of a laundromat owner whose life crosses parallel universes.

An emotional Michelle Yeoh was named best actress for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” and it took her a while to get on stage what her win meant for other Asian film fans, according to “Variety.”
“This isn’t just for me,” she said. “This is for every little girl who looks like me.” Yeoh went on to say that artists of color and actors from underrepresented communities want a “seat at the table.” She said, “So many of us need this. We want to be seen. We want to be heard.”
Brendan Fraser earned Best Actor honors for his work as a morbidly obese man in “The Whale.” While fighting back tears, Fraser referenced his professional highs and lows in a film life that took him from the A-list in the 1990s and early years to a career downturn that saw him disappear from the marquee, notes “ Variety op. “I’ve been riding that wave lately and I’ve also had that wave slam me into the ocean floor,” Fraser said.
