Michelle Yeoh wore Gucci at the Spirit Awards & happily posed with Cate Blanchett

For much of the awards season, it felt like Tar was marching towards an inevitable sweep of Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture. I’m biased because I loved the movie and I was actually quite pleased that it looked like Cate Blanchett would sweep the big awards. But then something really shifted in recent weeks – Everything Everywhere All at Once started to surge, big-time. At the SAGs – a huge indicator for how the acting Oscars will go – Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan picked up individual SAGs and the film picked up Best Ensemble. At this weekend’s Spirit Awards, I once again thought that Tar would be super-competitive. It was not – it was another sweep for EEAAO, which picked up awards for Best Feature, Best Director, Lead Performance (the acting categories were genderless) and Supporting Performance (Ke Huy Quan).

So… I’m starting to feel like Michelle Yeoh might need to get her Oscar speech ready. I also feel like Cate is fine with it. While Cate is incredibly proud of Tar – as she should be! – she’s also been there, done that with awards seasons and winning Oscars. It feels amazing to see Yeoh get her proverbial flowers after so many years.

Fashion notes: Michelle wore Gucci, a sculptural piece in a beautiful shade of blue. Cate wore another repeat – a Loewe look she’s had in her closet for years. Michelle and Cate posed together on the Spirit Awards carpet too. I love them. They absolutely need to make a lesbian drama or a murder mystery together. Or a lesbian noir!! Come on, that writes itself.
