The honor makes Michelle Yeoh the second Asian actress to win the category, following Awkwafina in 2020 for The Farewell.
In her acceptance speech, she lamented the age issue that cannot be avoided in her acting career.
“Time goes by, I turned 60 last year, and I think all the women in this room understand that, because as you get older, the opportunities get smaller,” she said. "Who would have thought that there would be another village where the willows are dark and the flowers are bright, and "The Universe in a Moment" found me."
In fact, since the end of the last century when she appeared as a Bond girl in 007, her acting skills have gradually been recognized by Western audiences. In recent years, Michelle Yeoh has more and more opportunities to appear in Hollywood. From Hollywood productions to streaming TV dramas, her role is nowhere.

"When I first came to Hollywood, it felt like a dream come true, but then reality hit me in the face. It's the face," she jokes. "I was told I was in the minority, and I was asked 'do you speak English?' and I said, 'Yes, it takes about 13 hours to fly over, and that's enough for me to learn.'"
Like the proprietress of "The Instant Universe" and even all Chinese,Michelle Yeoh came here with the "American Dream" in her heart, and today Chinese people all over the world have witnessed the proud moment of her dream come true.
“For me, this film is a tribute to the silent, sometimes invisible, giving of women around us, whose dedication we take for granted,” she said."Because the movie is also about chasing the American dream, there's a lot that resonates. ... We all know immigration is hard. I think any immigrant who's been here will tell you how hard it is, and sometimes it fails. , and even lost oneself.”
