Milton's Jenny Slate celebrates Oscar-winner 'Everything Everywhere All at Once'
By Dana Barbuto, The Patriot Ledger,
Milton native Jenny Slate didn't win an Academy Award for her stop-motion animated film "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On," but she still got a chance to celebrate onstage with the cast of the night's big winner, "Everything Everywhere All at Once."
Slate plays “Debbie the Dog Mom” and appears in some pivotal parts of “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” which won seven Oscars, including best picture, along with awards for Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Slate, who was valedictorian of her Milton Academy class in 2000, was all smiles and happy tears as she hugged her co-stars on stage during producer Jonathan Wang's acceptance speech. She rocked Hollywood's biggest night wearing a custom-made Thom Browne black silk faille corset and lace-up skirt with intricate beading. She attended the illustrious Vanity Fair Oscars after-party with her husband, Ben Shattuck.
