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:
His joy is infectious; it makes me smile. https://t.co/GAFnB3H9Oq
2.The way he celebrated with Harrison Ford, who he previously worked with on Indiana Jones, is entirely too sweet:
HES SO CJEBJDBSHDDB
3.And his winning speech? I literally cried.
In case you want to cry again. #Oscars
4.Honestly, people think the speech itself deserves an Oscar.
Can we give Ke Huy Quan a second Oscar for that speech
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."
