Fans are obsessed with Michelle Yeoh threatening to beat up the producers of the Golden Globes

Michelle Yeoh can and will annihilate you.

Cinema icon Michelle Yeoh had a great night at the Golden Globes yesterday, strolling away with a richly deserved award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture — Musical or Comedy for Everything Everywhere All at Once. Anyone who’s seen the movie will know why she won, with the multiversal adventure a showcase for her dramatic, comedic and action chops.

Fortunately, Yeoh wasn’t having any of it. She pointedly told them to “shut up” and then reminded them of her long history of martial arts expertise: “I can beat you up, okay? And that’s serious.”

If you haven’t already checked out Everything Everywhere All at Once, you really should get around to it, as it’s a phenomenally entertaining and imaginative movie, unlike anything you’ll have seen before. We’re over the moon that Yeoh got some recognition for her work on it, and wonder whether Oscars success might follow.

Everything Everywhere All at Once is available to stream on Showtime and can be rented from Apple TV, Amazon and Hulu.
