O Actor Ke Huy Quan has received attention over the past year for his outstanding performance in the film Everything Everywhere All at Once. He made his acting debut as the young sidekick Short Round in the star-studded blockbuster Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), despite spending many years away from the spotlight. Harrison Ford was chosen to give the Oscar for Best Picture at the 95th Academy Awards, which Quan won for Best Supporting Actor. Indiana Jones and Short Round were reunited on the Oscars stage as EEAAO won the night’s top prize, adding the perfect finishing touch to an evening filled with poignant moments.
Although though Ford and Quan have rejoined in recent years before—they were seen together at Disney’s D23 Expo in September 2022—this was unquestionably in a totally different setting. The cast and crew of EEAAO stood up to claim the prize after Ford unzipped the envelope and revealed the winner.
In addition to Quan and Ford’s reunion, Steven Spielberg, the filmmaker of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, was also present. The renowned director, whom Quan had previously hailed for launching his career, was present at the Oscars for his own movie The Fabelmans, but he was obviously pleased with Quan’s progress. The moment Quan won and hugged Ford, the cameras cut to Spielberg grinning.
Photographers at the ceremony were able to catch the hug from an angle that mirrored a scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in which Ford and Quan’s characters embrace. As if the moment wasn’t heartwarming enough on its own. This led to an emotional side-by-side comparison that had been building for almost 40 years. Quan, who has always been renowned for his positivity, genuineness, and profound respect for his castmates, finally experienced a full circle moment.
