Watch Oscar winners
The big winner was Amazon Prime Video with one film that not only won an Oscar statuette for best picture, but also a series of other awards for the actors and creators. But Netflix also has nothing to complain about, with prices for six different films. In that respect, Apple TV+'s profit this year is somewhat meager: only one Oscar for best animated film. Not the great success of last year with CODA, but still a nice bonus. Want to check out all these award winners this weekend? Then we tell you below which streaming video services you should go to!
Everything Everywhere All At Once
On display at: Amazon Prime Video
With 7 Oscars ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ this year's biggest winner. The film was voted best picture and there were Oscars for best actress (Michelle Yeoh), best supporting actor (Ke Huy Quan) and best supporting actress (an almost unrecognizable Jamie Lee Curtis). But it didn't stop there, because ’the Daniels’ (Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert) and the other makers received Oscars for best script, best direction and best editing.
As a movie ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ also very special. Chinese immigrant Evelyn (Michelle Yeoh) and her husband Waymond (Key Hun Quan) run a not-so-successful laundromat, a rebellious daughter and a tax return that just doesn't seem to end. Exactly when it all gets too much, the universe splits into an infinite number and Evelyn is no longer just a laundromat owner, but also an internationally known movie star, kung fu master, chef or maybe the hero everyone has been needing all along. had.

It is based on the book of the same name by Charlie Mackesy. The film previously won a BAFTA Film Award, four Annie Awards (including Best Special Production) and a NAACP Image Awards nomination for Outstanding Short Form (Animated) Film. We previously wrote about the Oscar for ‘The Boy, The Mole, etc’.
