Ke Huy Quan and the ‘American Dream’
“My journey started on a boat. I spent a year in a refugee camp – and somehow I ended up here, on Hollywood’s biggest stage. They say stories like this only happen in the movies. I can’t believe this is happening to me,” said Ke Huy Quan, upon winning the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in Everything Everywhere at the Same Time. The moment was, by far, one of the most emotional of the night.
