Nominated for the Oscar for Best Actress opposite Cate Blanchett this year, Michelle Yeoh shared and then deleted an article on her Instagram account, in which it was recalled that her rival has already won the precious statuette twice.
True legend of Hollywood cinema, Michelle Yeoh was nominated in the Best Actress category at the Oscars 2023, for her performance in the hit film Everything Everywhere All at Ounce. While she hopes to finally win the precious statuette, what would make her the first person of Asian descent to win the Best Actress Oscar, Michelle Yeoh will have to face serious competitors this year, in the forefront of which we find Cate Blanchett. Already an Oscar winner in the past, the actress is also nominated in the best actress category, for her performance in the title role of the film Tar.
For memory, Cate Blanchett has already won the Oscar for best actress twice, For the movie Tea Airman in 2005, as well as for the feature film Blue Jasmine in 2014. Therefore, is it really necessary that she receive a 3rd Oscar? In any case, this is the question that was asked withinan article that Michelle Yeoh shared on her Instagram account, before quickly deleting it. “Detractors will say that Blanchett’s performance is the strongest – she is, without question, incredible as the prolific conductor Lydia Tár – but it should be noted that she already has two Oscars. A third would perhaps confirm his status as an industry titan but, given his expansive and unparalleled body of work, do we still need further confirmation?“, is it written in this famous paper.

“In the meantime, for Michelle Yeoh, an Oscar would change her life : his name would forever be preceded by the expression ‘Oscar-winning’, and this should allow him to obtain more fleshed out roles, after a decade of criminal underuse in Hollywood“, also added the author of the article shared by the rival of Cate Blanchett. Would Michelle Yeoh be jealous of the success of her colleague? In the meantime, the fact of having shared this article could cause him harm, since the regulations of the Academy of the Oscars state that “public communication by anyone directly associated with an eligible film attempting to cast a negative or derogatory light on a competing film or achievement will not be tolerated“.
