Literally Just Appreciation For All The Times Ke Huy Quan's Excitement Made Him The Sweetest Man Ever

Last night, Ke Huy Quan won for Best Supporting Actor at the 2023 Oscars for his role as Waymond Wang in Everything Everywhere All at Once.

The award — and larger recognition for his acting abilities — have been a long time coming. After initially scoring roles as a child actor in classics like The Goonies and Indiana Jones, Quan struggled to find work. Then, in the early aughts, he decided to step away from acting altogether. It wasn't until the release of Crazy Rich Asians that he felt inspired to return.

And people are so glad he did! Throughout the award season, we've been able to watch Ke Huy Quan be celebrated, appreciated, and honored, and he's taken everything with the most infectious joy. We're obsessed, and so is the internet:

1.People couldn't help but smile when he jumped around in excitement after winning the Oscar:

2.The way he celebrated with Harrison Ford, who he previously worked with on Indiana Jones, is entirely too sweet:

3.And his winning speech? I literally cried.

4.Honestly, people think the speech itself deserves an Oscar.

5.He's just so PURE. As one person wrote, "It's truly uncanny how much I adore this random man solely because he's so happy to be alive and is so grateful."

6.His happiness truly rubs off on you.

7.It's been a joy to see him bounce around Hollywood all award season.

8.And never get a chance to sit down because he was earning all of the accolades.

9.And the tears of joy never stopped.

10.No, seriously, he even told Stephen Colbert that he can't stop crying because "things are so different for me now than they were back then... I thought everyone had forgotten about me."

11."But since the movie came out, there's been so much positivity and so much kindness," he continued when speaking on The Late Show.

12.We want nothing but nice things for him. Maybe even ~everything~.

13.Because anyone who refuses to let their dreams pass them by deserves the night they imagined.

14.If we could only just do laundry and taxes with him for the rest of our lives, that would be enough.

Congrats, Ke Huy Quan!
