Michelle Yeoh won best actress at the 95th Academy Awards on March 12, becoming the first woman of Asian descent to win the award. 60-year-old Yeoh earned the trophy for her acclaimed performance in "Everything Everywhere All at Once."
Directed by Derek Tsang, the youth melodrama film “Better Days“ (2019) landed a nomination for Best International Feature at the 93rd Academy Awards.
If there is one thing The Farewell and its director Lulu Wang did wrong, it was being too brutally honest, about the in-between-ness of Chinese-American immigrants, the differences between Eastern and Western culture, and the feelings that come as a loved one passes away.
Nezha's attention from the Academy came as somewhat of a surprise. As we look into all the Chinese films that were once nominated for Best Foreign Language Film over the past years, it is easy to find a pattern of taste.
