Tan Sri Michelle Yeoh's mum, Datin Janet Yeoh said “Malaysia Boleh!” when asked of her hope about Michelle's chance of winning Best Actress at the Oscars.

The 84-year-old couldn’t stop smiling while walking the red carpet at an exclusive viewing party of the 95th Academy Awards at Dadi Cinema in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, hosted by the Yeoh family this morning.

Janet's guest Tan Sri Vincent Tan said at the red carpet: “I believe Michelle Yeoh will win as she had won so many now. So in this finale, God willing (she will).

"We all should be very proud. I think not only Malaysians but all Asians should be very proud of her, because this is the first time we have an Asian nominee for best actress.”

Another guest at the viewing party, actress Nasha Aziz was equally happy with Michelle's Oscar nomination, calling the movie Everything Everywhere All At Once as “amazing” and that Ipoh-born star gave an incredible performance in it.

Actress Sangeeta Krishnasamy, who was also an invited guest, said at the red carpet: “I'm confident that we've all been waiting for this moment. And it's finally here. We’re all rooting for her. I watched Everything Everywhere twice. Yeah, I absolutely loved her performance in it.

“We all believe she deserves it. And I hope that she goes home with an Oscar today.”
