Oscar 2023 minute by minute

"Everything Everywhere at the Same Time" won the Best Picture award

Jimmy Kimmel arrived by parachute, this Sunday, March 12, on the stage of the Oscar 2023. “Welcome to the 95th edition of the Oscars. We did it! ”, He said to start a monologue that lasted for more than 10 minutes.

After mentioning various aspects related to the celebrities present, he announced that in this edition "there are 16 nominees for the first time." With jokes that involved actors and movies, the animator managed to get applause and laughter with a boring entrance, stoned by the excess script.

“If someone commits an act of violence they will be nominated and they will win the award for Best Actor and they will be able to give a 19-minute speech,” he said, mocking the moment in 2022 in which Will Smith took the award.

Continuing with his intervention, Jimmy warned that “if something violent happens, nothing will happen, maybe they will receive a hug. But if they come to the stage they will have to fight several of my friends first, face Spider-Man, The Mandalorian and even Michelle Yeoh… to finally fight Guillermo, who is my right hand man, and not Del Toro," he commented, referring to to a guarura

"All the categories are back, we will show the 23, except one that was for 'All Quiet Front', which was delivered earlier," he commented, referring to Best Foreign Film (Germany).

Some dancers came in to get the entertainer out.

Yes now…

Following Kimmel's departure, the show kicked off with the announcement of Best Animated Feature Film for Guillermo del Toro for "Pinocchio," with a Netflix-produced reinterpretation of the character. “Let's keep the animation within the conversation. I dedicate this award to my wife, children, mother and father who are still with me”.

As is customary, the Best Supporting Actor award was announced, which unsurprisingly went to Ke Huy Quan for “Everything Everywhere at the Same Time”. “My mother is 84 years old and is at home. Mom I just won an Oscar. My journey started on a boat, I spent a year in a refugee camp and somehow ended up here in Hollywood… This is the American dream,” the Vietnamese immigrant said through tears. “One day my time would come. I almost gave up on my dream. All of you keep your dreams alive. Thanks for welcoming me back. I love you, thank you, thank you, thank you."

For the women and their great performances, the winner for Best Supporting Actress was revealed, which Jamie Lee Curtis took after her first Oscar nomination for "Everything, everywhere and at the same time." “Stop. I have 45 seconds and I promised I was going to do well. I am here and I am hundreds of people, ”she said, referring to everyone who worked on the film. “We won an Oscar. To my family, my beautiful husband, our daughters, my sister, to all the people who have supported the movies I've made over the years: we won an Oscar together. To my mom and dad nominated in different categories: I just won an Oscar, ”she said crying.

Sophia Carlson and Diane Warren were the first to musically defend their nomination on stage for “Applause”, a theme from the film “Tell It Like a Woman”. The first with voice, the second on piano, they achieved a sublime interpretation, full of charisma, of the incredible ballad.
