Michelle Yeoh is the first Asian woman to win the Academy Award in the Best Actress category. The award was dedicated to boys and girls from all over the world so that they never stop dreaming big. Kissing the Academy Awards statuette in tears, the actress also thanked mothers from all over the world, true heroines to look up to.
The Times last year included her in the top 100 people with the most influence on the planet but her definitive consecration came as the protagonist of the sci-fi comedy Everything Everywhere at all once. At the age of twenty she won the title of Miss Malaysia, when she filed the path as a dancer after an accident, immediately after she put her physicality at the service of martial arts even in front of the camera.
Michelle Yeoh shared and then deleted a Vogue article whose headline wondered whether or not she would be the first non-white actress to win in 20 years, the third of color, after Halle Berry and Viola Davis. This post would violate the rule that candidates cannot mention contestants.

Upon her Academy nomination, she wrote on Instagram: "I am overwhelmed and overjoyed with happiness! Every single person who worked on this film poured their heart and soul into it, and we are all so grateful to the Academy for recognizing so many from our EEAAO family.
Playing Evelyn Wang has been one of the great privileges of my 40 year career. It is truly the role of a lifetime. Thank you to Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert for seeing me and for this opportunity, I will forever cherish this moment."
