Everything Everywhere All at Once has already won six Golden Globes awards and is gearing up for March 12 when the Academy Awards take place. The movie's success is no doubt why the auction run by entertainment company A24 has also brought in an impressive amount of money to be disbursed among several charities.

What types of movie props were auctioned?

Among the 43 items from the filming of Everything Everywhere All at Once that were included in the A24 auction, there were costumes pieces, a trophy, a raccoon puppet, and a googly-eyed rock. The movie's plot centers around a Chinese laundromat owner who's facing a grueling tax audit and begins connecting with parallel universe versions of herself to save the multiverse.

The majority of auctioned items came from the film's costume department. Pieces of costumes worn by the lead character Evelyn (played by Michelle Yeoh, Evelyn's daughter Joy, and Waymond Wang — played by Ke Huy Quan) were among those auctioned to raise money.

By far the most valuable auctioned item, at least according to those who were willing to place a bid, was the animatronic raccoon puppet. Raccaccoonie was the name of the puppet in the film, used in a similar role to the rat "Ratatouille" in the film by the same name, controlling a chef's actions in a restaurant kitchen. CNN reports that Raccaccoonie went for a bid of $90,000.

What is the strangest item to be auctioned off from the movie?

Everything Everywhere All at Once is such a unique movie with an unusual number of settings and costume choices, so it isn't a surprise that the items auctioned off likely all seem a bit weird. One stunt double auctioned off was the Rockverse Rock, complete with googly eyes, which brought in 15 bidders and ended with a bid of $13,200.
