Yeoh’s win marks a significant achievement for Asian actors as she is only the second Asian actor to be nominated in the best-actress category in the Oscars’ history. The actress dedicated her win to “all the little boys and girls who look like me,” calling it a “beacon of hope and possibilities.” Yeoh has been a longtime advocate for Asian representation in film and television.

She has had vital roles in what have been the first large U.S. studio movies in years with all-Asian casts—Marvel Studios’ “Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings” and “Crazy Rich Asians.” Her latest role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” puts the spotlight on Asian immigrant women, and Yeoh hopes the movie will encourage people to notice and give them a voice. She plays the role of an aging Asian woman who is an Asian immigrant wife and mother trying to be everything for everyone, and her performance has drawn attention and accolades for her portrayal of a character who is often invisible.
