Everything Everywhere All At Once nearly swept the film categories at the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night as Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ke Huy Quan were all recognized with Brendan Fraser enjoying his comeback moment with a tearful speech as he earned a top honor.

The American absurdist comedy-drama film also earned the top award of the night Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the star-studded event which took place place at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Century City, California.

The film beat out star-studded casts including: Babylon, The Banshees Of Inisherin, The Fabelmans, and Women Talking.

Yeoh, Curtis, and Quan all gave brief speeches before allowing ‘patriarch and friend’ James Hong to take the mic for most of the final acceptance speech.

The 94-year-old acting legend said: ‘I got my first SAG card 70 years ago. My first movie was with Clark Gable but back in those days I have to tell you the leading role was played by guys with their eyes taped up and they talked like this because the producer said Asians are not good enough and they are not box office, but look at us now, huh?

‘We’re not all Chinese but Jamie Lee is a good Chinese name… I feel very akin to her and I’ve never had such a good time as I did with these jerks on the movie.’

The film is centered around a middle-aged Chinese immigrant named Evelyn Wang (played by Yeoh) who is swept up into an insane adventure in which she alone can save existence by exploring other universes and connecting with the lives she could have led.

Yeoh, 60, became the first ever Asian actress to earn Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role as she triumphed over: Cate Blanchett -Tar, Viola Davis – The Woman King, Ana de Armas – Blonde, and Danielle Deadwyler – Till.

Earlier in the night Jamie Lee Curtis, 64, planted a big smooch on Yeoh shortly after her name was announced as the winner of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

Curtis won over an impressive field including: Angela Bassett – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Hong Chau – The Whale, Kerry Condon – The Banshees of Inisherin, and Stephanie Hsu – Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Meanwhile castmate Ke Huy Quan earned Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for the same American absurdist comedy-drama film.

The 51-year-old actor got emotional as he revealed that he was the first Asian male actor to ever win the award.

Though Everything Everywhere All At Once earned four of the main five film awards, Brendan Fraser continued his comeback tour in emotional fashion as he earned top honor Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for The Whale.

The 54-year-old acting veteran got tearful during his acceptance speech as he said: ‘I treasure this, but never more than when I treasured what I used to keep in my wallet, which was my SAG card that I earned in 1991. It made me feel like I belonged.

‘As actors, we all want to belong to a tribe and that’s when I found where I belong. And if you told that guy back then that I’d be standing right here right now, I would not have believed you.’

Fraser triumphed over Austin Butler – Elvis, Colin Farrell – The Banshees Of Inisherin, Bill Nighy – Living, and Adam Sandler – Hustle.

In The Whale, Brendan portrays Charlie a reclusive, morbidly obese English teacher attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter.

The White Lotus was the biggest winner on the television side as the HBO series earned Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in addition to a Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series win for Jennifer Coolidge.

The 61-year-old acting veteran got emotional while recalling a childhood anecdote during her acceptance speech at the 2023 Screen Actors Guild awards.
