`Everything Everywhere All At Once`, `The White Lotus` sweep SAG Awards


Metaverse adventure film ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ won the top prize at the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday evening, reported ‘Variety’.

The Michelle Yeoh-starrer also broke records, becoming the biggest film winner in the show’s history, sweeping nearly every category, adds “Variety.”

But SAG highlights the small screen, as well as the big, notes ‘variety’. Awards-season favorite “Abbot Elementary,” a sitcom about teachers at an underfunded public school, won the best TV comedy ensemble statue. Another series taking home the award, ‘The White Lotus’, an epic look at over-the-top guests at an Italian resort, took home the honor for best TV drama ensemble.

`Everything everywhere at once‘, one of the few recent indies to perform big at the box office, dominated the evening with four wins, followed by ‘The White Lotus’, which will be remembered for Jennifer Coolidge with two wins.

‘Everything Everything All at One’ continues to build momentum during the marathon awards season, collecting top prizes in the two weeks leading up to the Oscars, adds ‘Variety’.

This weekend, it won the Producers Guild Award and last weekend it won the Directors Guild Award for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the filmmaking duo behind the absurd story of a laundromat owner whose life intersects with parallel universes.

“It’s not just for me,” he said. “This is for every little girl who looks like me.” Yeoh added that artists of color and actors from under-represented communities want a “seat at the table.” He said: “A lot of us need this. We want to be seen. We want to be heard.”

Brandon Fraser Won Best Actor for his performance as a fat man in ‘The Whale’. Fighting back tears, Fraser recounted in the film his professional highs and lows in a life that took him from the A-list in the 1990s to a career decline for early reasons that pushed him off the marquee, noting ‘ Variety’. “I’ve been riding that wave recently, and I’ve had that wave break me to the bottom of the ocean,” Fraser said.
