Chinese fans are celebrating the Oscar nomination of Michelle Yeoh for Best Actress, with some calling her "the pride of Chinese people everywhere".

Yeoh was nominated for her starring role in Everything Everywhere All At Once, which also earned her a Golden Globes win earlier this month.

News of the Asian superstar's Oscar nod trended on Chinese social media platform Weibo as many fans rejoiced.

She will become the first Asian woman to triumph in her category if she wins.

Yeoh is the first Malaysian and also the first woman of Chinese descent to gain an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

This year's Academy Awards nominations have been particularly fruitful for stars of Asian descent, with Everything Everywhere All At Once earning 11 nominations.

Yeoh's co-stars Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu, as well as director Daniel Kwan, were similarly honoured.
