Michelle Yeoh’s mother crying, proud of the “little princess”

Michelle Yeoh’s mother wept for her “little princess” when the Malaysian actress became the first Asian to win a Best Actress Oscar.

Yeoh’s family and two cabinet ministers were among the supporters cheering on Yeoh’s victory during an Academy Awards ceremony in Malaysia on Monday morning. Her trophy for her performance as a laundress was one of seven Academy Awards for Everything, Everywhere, Everywhere, including Best Picture.

Janet Yeoh, 84, praised the actor as smart, hardworking and a daughter.

“I love my daughter very much and she has made Malaysia proud,” Yeoh said at a press conference after the viewing at a cinema in Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia Poleh (Malaysia Can)! “

Janet Yeoh said she is very proud of her “little princess”, who wanted to be a ballerina before entering the world of cinema. Yeoh said she pulled her daughter out of her cocoon despite the protests of her late husband, a lawyer whom she called “old-fashioned”.

In her acceptance speech, Yoh dedicated her award to her mother and said that “all mothers in the world” are the true superheroes.

“It was an amazing moment. I was speechless, I cried,” said Vicky Yeoh, Michelle Yeoh’s niece, who was at the special screening. “The candidates are really strong, but we have no doubt. We keep telling her you’ll win…you’ll be standing on the stage with the Golden Man.”

Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh, who was at the parade, immediately posted on social media: “The most inspiring quote for all of us from your aunts – ‘Ladies, never let anyone tell you you’re past the lead’ – Michelle Yeoh.”

Lawmakers Sim Tze Sen and Wei Ka Siong thanked Michelle Yeoh for “breaking the glass ceilings” for Asian and Malaysian women, and praised her for being a symbol of resilience and perseverance.

Michelle Yeoh, 60, learned ballet before turning to acting. Her first major Hollywood role was playing a Chinese spy in 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies alongside Pierce Brosnan.

She gained fame for her role in the 2000 martial arts masterpiece Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which was nominated for Best Picture and won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Yeoh has found more success recently with 2018’s Crazy Rich Asians and 2021’s Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

“We are incredibly proud. We hope she will break more records and win more awards,” said her nephew Kelvin Yeoh.
