Oscars 2023: Ke Huy Quan’s emotional speech in tears

There is nothing that Hollywood likes more than a good “comeback”, the return to fame of a star after having lived a moment and, Ke Huy Quan’s moving speech between tears at the Oscars 2023, is the best argument.

“My mother is 84 years old and she’s watching at home. Mom, she just won an Oscar,” the actor began, statuette in hand, before listening to the dedication. “My journey started on a boat. I spent a year in a refugee camp and suddenly I’m here.” The American Dream.

We met Ke Huy Quan thanks to Steven Spielberg when he played a little Stopper in ‘Indiana Jones’ and the Temple of Doom in 1984, and in the oblivion trap expert in ‘The Goonies’ (Richard Donner, 1985). “Disappeared” since then, returned stronger than ever as the main character’s husband (played by Michael Yeoh) in “Everything Together Everywhere”.

“Fables like this can only happen in a movie, but it happened to me,” he exclaims to the audience. “This is the American dream. Thank you to the university for this once-in-a-lifetime honor. Thank you to my mother for the sacrifices you made me today. Thank you to my brother who calls me every day. .

“My brother forever from ‘The Goonies,'” Jeff Coen said, referring to his memorable co-star Gord. “I owe everything to my love, to my wife Corinna, who month and month and year, and for 20 years, always told me that one day my time would come.”

“Dreams are something you have to believe in, and I almost gave up on myself,” he said before giving the final touch that marked the best speech of the night. “To all of you out there: keep dreaming, keep living your dreams. Thank you for giving me this new favorite. I love you. Thank you.” Invincible

In an interview with Ke Huy Quan in PHOTOGRAM, the actor explained his departure from the industry when he discovered that there were no suitable parts for “young Asians”, something that changed when “Crazy Rich Asians” was released (Jon M. Chu, 2018). “I realized that maybe something had to change in the industry and that for years I had refused to acknowledge the obvious: I had lost my agency,” he admitted to us. “I asked the agent, and a little later, ‘Everything at once.’

And now, Ke Huy Quan, the Oscar winner, coincides again with Michelle Yeoh in “A Chinese-born American”, an action series directed by Destin Cretton (‘Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings) that we can see on Disney+.
