‘Everything’ wins best picture, is everywhere at Oscars

March 13, 2023

The indie hit, A24’s second best picture winner following “Moonlight,” won seven Oscars in all. Kimmel struggled to find lessons from the year’s prior scandal when Will Smith smacked presenter Chris Rock, and went on to win best actor. Neither Tom Cruise, whose “Top Gun: Maverick” was up for best picture, nor James Cameron, director of best-picture nominee “Avatar: The Way of Water,” were at the ceremony. ADVERTISEMENTLast year, Apple TV’s “CODA” became the first streaming movie to win best picture. But this year, nine of the 10 best picture nominees were theatrical releases.
