Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis
“Everything Everywhere All at Once” stars clear up
Double win at the Oscars! Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis from Everything Everywhere All at Once are Best Supporting Actors.
Right at the beginning of the 95th Oscar ceremony, the winners from last year, “West Side Story” star Ariana DeBose (32) and “Coda” actor Troy Kotsur (54), presented the categories “Best Supporting Actor” and “Best Supporting Actress”. . There was a double win for “Everything Everywhere All at Once”.
Ke Huy Quan realizes the “American Dream”
Ke Huy Quan (51) was awarded “Best Supporting Actor”. The visibly touched actor, who got his career back on track after decades, couldn’t hold back his tears. “Mom, I just won an Oscar,” he said to the camera. At home, his 84-year-old mother would watch the ceremony, Quan said. The native Vietnamese recalled his time in a refugee camp on stage. He never thought he would be on the Oscars stage today.
Finally, the former child star (known from ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’ and ‘The Goonies’) appealed to local audiences and TV viewers: “Please keep your dreams alive.” His own had just come true.
Ke Huy Quan prevailed against strong competition. Next to him were Brendan Gleeson (67) and Barry Keoghan (30) for “The Banshees of Inisherin”, Brian Tyree Henry (40) for “Causeway” and Judd Hirsch (87) for “The Fabelmans”.
Jamie Lee Curtis cleans up
It was just as emotional and quite surprising with the winner in the category “Best Supporting Actress”. Jamie Lee Curtis (64) was nominated for the first time in her more than 40-year film career and was awarded directly. She received an Oscar for her role as a petty civil servant in Everything Everywhere All at Once. With tears, she thanked the film crew, her team and her family. The 64-year-old also remembered her late parents Tony Curtis (1925-2010) and Janet Leigh (1927-2004), who were both nominated for Oscars.
Curtis’ biggest competitors were probably Angela Bassett (64) for her role in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” colleague Stephanie Hsu (32). Hong Chau (43, “The Whale”) and Kerry Condon (40, “The Banshees of Inisherin”) were also hoping for an Oscar.
