Michelle Yeoh may have violated the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' "References to Other Nominees" rule after posting Vogue article about fellow Best Actress nominee and two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett.
"Detractors would say that Blanchett’s is the stronger performance — the acting veteran is, indisputably, incredible as the prolific conductor Lydia Tár — but it should be noted that she already has two Oscars,” read the article.
“Meanwhile, for Yeoh, an Oscar would be life-changing: Her name would forever be preceded by the phrase ‘Academy Award winner,’ and it should result in her getting meatier parts, after a decade of being criminally underused in Hollywood,” continued the piece.

It’s my turn!
Where have we heard that before?
Rule don’t matter so much if the person wronged is white and the person violating the rule isn’t. I think the Oscars will turn a blind eye.
What’s an “Oscar”?
What difference at this point does it make??
And why should I care?
Maybe not Oscar worthy, But Ms. Yeoh definitely knows how to rock a frumpy sweater:
Yeoh should check her privilege. Many talented actresses never attain Yeoh's privileged status.
I thought “Everything Everywhere All at Once” was crap, and the underlying theme was that her failure to accept her lesbian daughter turned her into an evil nemesis, and she just had to accept her as she was to save the world. Typical of the crap coming out of Hollywood these days. At least Jamie Lee Curtis’ role was fun.
The non White will win.
Who’s Michelle Yeoh?
Yeah, I guess I could read the article. If I cared that much. 😏
I wanna an award
What’s the Oscars?
“life changing”. Hum, Remember when Nobel Prize committee thought giving Obama the Peace Prize (before he accomplished ‘anything’) would keep him from becoming a war monger? Yes. Right afterwards he droned thousands of Muslims and people of color ‘cause he could and just felt like it. (Obviously channeling his 1/2 evil white side).
We got hungry for a everything bagel!
Yeoh obviously needs an Oscars Participation Trophy.
