Everything at once everywhere at the same time.by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, made history at the 95th Oscar Ceremony. Not only did it win seven awards, including Best PictureBest Director and three of the major acting categories. It also became the first science fiction feature film to win. But what was it that made the film by the filmmaking team called the Daniels more than a Hollywood oddity?
The feature film is a mix between an exploration of the future, human nature and spiritual good. All from the concept of multiverses. But, unlike Marvelwhich still tries to translate the idea of multiple realities to film without much success, the Daniels succeeded with ease. The film explores the identity of its characters carefully through their decisions. Again and again, each possibility becomes an alternate world that leads to completely unknown places.
But, in the end, it is the story of a family. The story incorporates love into the familiar trope of travel between dimensions and universes. A theme that stands out amidst the action scenes and multiversal jumps.
A new outlook for unconventional cinema.

But the production also has a second layer that could explain its triumph with the often conservative Oscar voters. Over the past few months, there was debate that the awards had grown old. A conversation that reached the networks with the hashtag #OscarIsSoOld. In other words, their traditional audience became adult without a new generation showing interest in the choices of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Several of its scenes became challenges on social platforms, where its humor and ironic premise were celebrated. Subversive and irreverent, the film has the ability to make people laugh and reflect at the same time.
