Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh, last week, became the first ever Asian woman to win best actress at Oscars, for her portrayal of an exhausted Chinese laundromat owner embroiled in battle with an inter-dimensional super villain – who happens to be her daughter in the movie “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” The surreal sci-fi film “Everything Everywhere All at Once” dominated the Oscars winning seven golden statuettes including best picture, Hollywood’s most coveted prize.

The unorthodox but beloved movie – which features multiple universes, sex toys and hot dog fingers – also won best director, best actress, best original screenplay, best editing and both the best supporting actor and actress prizes.
