The Academy Award for Best Actress will feature the names of Yang Tze-chung, Yang Tze-chong, who starred in "Every Thing Every Wear All at Once."

Family and fans watching the awards ceremony in Malaysia erupted in cheers.

[Yang Tze-chung/Best Actress winner: My award is a testament to hope and possibility. Don't let others tell you that your prime is past your prime. Never give up.]

On social media, Halle Berry and Yang Tze-chung, who won the Best Actress award for "Monster Ball" in 2002, compared photos of Yang Tze-chung, pointing out that it took 74 years for a person of color to win the award and 95 years for an Asian woman.

Born in Malaysia from overseas Chinese, Yang Tze-chung is one of Hong Kong's leading action actors who played in the 80s and 90s, and is familiar to us from the Yes Madame series and Waho Chang Ryong.

Every Thing All at Once, about the tumult of a first-generation American immigrant family across multiple universes, featured a slew of Asian actors and won the most awards, sweeping seven categories, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress for a male or female filmmaker.

The cute boy from Indiana Jones 1 and the Goonies, Kihoi Kwando also lifted the trophy.

This year's Academy Awards are a testament to the transformation of the Oscars, which were stripped of the stigma of being a white-only feast with director Bong Joon-ho's four-time winner in 7 for "Parasite."
