The Ipoh-born star beat Australian actress and 2-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, who was said to be her closest contender, for the coveted acting prize.

In her speech, Yeoh dedicated the award to “all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight”.

“This is the beacon of hope and possibility. Dreams do come true. And ladies: don’t let anybody ever tell you you are past your prime.”

She finished by thanking her mother, who was watching back at home, and “all the mums in the world because they are really the superheroes and without them none of us would be here tonight”.

Yeoh’s victory at the Oscars is seen as a historic moment for the Asian community in the entertainment industry.

The award is simply yet another award Yeoh has won in the past couple of months which include the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild and the Independent Spirit Awards.

Meanwhile, ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ also won the Oscar for best picture at the Academy Awards.


Congratulations to Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh for making us Malaysians proud once again by making history!
