The 95th Academy Awards came to a close with seven victories for the hot favourite Everything Everywhere All at Once and an eagerly anticipated triumph for India’s own RRR in the Best Original Song category. In their film The Elephant Whisperers, India earned a second Oscar victory in the Best Documentary Feature category. All that Breathes, directed by Shaunak Sen, was up for Best Documentary Feature but fell short to Navalny.
Here are the major winners at this year’s Oscars, and where to watch them:
Everything Everywhere All at Once – SonyLIV
The genre-bending picture is directed by the Daniels and stars Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu, and Jamie Lee Curtis. EEAAO received seven Oscars, the most of any film this year, and had long been considered a favourite. It is also a box office hit, grossing more than $100 million worldwide.
RRR – Netflix, Disney+ Hotstar and ZEE5
SS Rajamouli’s RRR is a huge box-office success, but it owes a lot to streaming services. Only after it made its Netflix premiere, although in the Hindi form with dubbing, did it become a viral sensation in the US. The Tamil-dubbed version is accessible on Disney+ Hotstar, and the original Telugu version can be found on ZEE5.
The Elephant Whisperers – Netflix
The short documentary about a couple that cares for an orphaned elephant, which was directed by Kartiki Gonsalves and was produced by Guneet Monga, is one of the numerous works on human connections to animals that received praise last year. The Banshees of Inisherin, whose donkey cast member made a cameo at the Oscars, is another, as is the documentary Wildcat and the Best International Feature candidate EO.
