And the Oscar for Best Picture Goes to…

First, it was Nomadland. Then, it was CODA. And now, the Academy just honored another lucky film with the most highly coveted award.

Tonight, the 95th annual Oscars took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, , Everything Everywhere All at Once took home the statuette for Best Picture 2023.

The movie beat out 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.

The Academy Award for Best Picture has been around since the Oscars debuted in 1929. The statuette is given to the producer(s)—not the cast. Last year’s award went to CODA, which was up against Belfast, Don’t Look Up, Dune, Drive My Car, King Richard, Licorice Pizza, Nightmare Alley, The Power of the Dog and West Side Story.
