Ke Huy Quan takes home the win for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once. He beat out Oscar hopefuls Brendan Gleeson (The Banshees of Inisherin), Brian Tyree Henry (Causeway), Judd Hirsch (The Fablemans) and Barry Keoghan (The Banshees of Inisherin). The award was presented by Troy Kotsur and Ariana DeBose, who won Oscars in the same category in 2022.

Everything Everywhere All At Once is directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, collectively known as Daniels. The film is both a family drama and sci-fi action adventure, about a Chinese American woman’s estranged relationship with her daughter Joy.

Quan played Evelyn’s husband, Waymond Wang, and captured the hearts of audiences everywhere. Quan has had an amazing awards season, taking home the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and many others for his role in Everything Everywhere All At Once.

The actor has been very candid about his acting journey, and the difficulties he had finding work in Hollywood. He was last seen in The Goonies and Indiana Jones, and took a 40 year break from acting after that. Even after filming Everything Everywhere All At Once, Quan mentioned that he didn’t get a single job, nor callback. That’s all about to change now that he’s an Academy Award winner.
