Oscars 2023 winners: Ratings, latest news, viewership, snubs and reactions to Academy Awards


Jimmy Kimmel, Everything Everywhere and a donkey: Highlights of the Oscars 2023

Everything Everywhere All at Once dominated the 95th Academy Awards, which were held on Sunday night at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre.

Michelle Yeoh took home the Best Actress prize, becoming the first Asian woman and only second woman of colour to win the trophy. The film also won Best Picture, and Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for writer/directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

Brendan Fraser cemented his comeback with a Best Actor win for The Whale, while Everything Everywhere stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan picked up Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor, respectively.

The night was not without controversy, with criticism aimed at Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Malala and a painful encounter between model Ashley Graham and an “obnoxious” Hugh Grant.

Many also felt that Angela Bassett deserved the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. The award instead went to Jamie Lee Curtis, prompting what many viewers described as a “real” reaction from Bassett.

There were plenty of bold looks on the “champagne” carpet this year, including Rihanna who turned up in a T-shirt, trainers and bucket hat.

A full list of tonight’s winners can be found here.

Why were all the stars wearing blue ribbons?

Were you wondering why all the guests were wearing blue ribbons last night? Well, turns out they were in support of refugees.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees said donning the #WithRefugees ribbons would send “a powerful visual message that everyone has the right to seek safety, whoever, wherever, whenever”.

Malala responded: “I only talk about peace.”

Voices: Why Chris Rock is wrong about Jada Pinkett Smith

“I don’t care if Rock wasn’t aware of Pinkett Smith’s alopecia beforehand; he had about as much right to make fun of a Black woman’s lack of hair as Smith had the right to walk up and slap Rock across the face,” Inga Parkel writes for The Independent.

“A year later, claiming that his GI Jane remark was intended to shut down a so-called feud she ‘started’ years ago is not the succinct comeback he may have intended. I’m sorry to tell you, Chris Rock, but I would argue that you didn’t ‘finish it’, Will Smith finished it for you.

If Michelle Yeoh’s Oscar speech jibe was directed at Don Lemon, the CNN anchor took no notice.

During her acceptance speech, Yeoh said: “Ladies, don’t ever let anyone tell you you are ever past your prime!”

Lemon recently came under fire for suggesting that women were in their “prime” in their “twenties and thirties and maybe forties”.
