"I'm probably going to take a break from social media for awhile after tomorrow," Kwan wrote. "The last thing I ask of any fans of our film is to be gracious and kind tomorrow, especially if we don't pick up awards that you might have felt we deserved. I love every one of the films we are up against for different reasons, and more importantly, I have grown to love and appreciate the people behind each of the films as I have gotten to know them this season," he continued. "Just know, I already have everything I could ever want, and there is no need to be angry on our behalf. No movie deserves to sweep, no matter how good it is, and I am rooting whole heartedly for my fellow nominees. Thank you for coming along with me on this wild ride, all of your support has meant the world to me. Byeeeeeee"

According to The New York Times, The Daniels watched the Oscar nomination announcements with the film's stars Yeoh and Quan on a video call, and they continuously celebrated as the film raked in their nominations. 

"It was so loud, we could barely hear what anyone was saying," Quan told the outlet. "I was jumping up and down, screaming at the top of my voice, exactly the same way that I did when I got the phone call from my agent that the Daniels wanted me to play Waymond...It's so surreal. I am ecstatic."
