Indiana Jones Embraces Cast – Variety

Ke Huy Quan ended an emotional Oscar night by reuniting on stage with his Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom co-star Harrison Ford. Ford presented the final award of the 2023 ceremony, which went to “All at once” for best picture. The two actors and former actors shared an emotional hug as Guan and Ford came face to face as the cast of “Everywhere” took the stage to accept the award. Guan previously won an Oscar for best supporting actor at the ceremony.

Ford has defended Guan’s performance in “Everywhere” throughout awards season. Guan started out as a child actor in Hollywood, making his feature film debut opposite Ford in Steven Spielberg’s 1984 adventure Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

“I am very happy for him. He’s a great guy,” Ford told Entertainment Tonight about Guan’s Oscar nomination in January. “He is a wonderful actor. He was when he was a little boy, and he is now. I’m glad. I am very happy for him.”

Ford previously said before announcing the Oscar nominees that Guan’s bid for best supporting actor would be “well deserved.” Ford added to Uproxx at the time, β€œHe’s really great in his movie. I’m so excited to see him…and what he’s become. I am very happy for him. He is also a very happy boy.”

The Oscars weren’t the first time Guan and Ford had an emotional reunion. The two went viral when they ran into each other and posed for a photo at Disney’s D23 convention last September. Ford was at the event to promote Indiana Jones 5, while Guan was part of the cast of Loki Season 2. Quan told The New York Times that when he asked her if she wanted to reunite, her heart skipped a beat. Ford.

“As I approach, he turns and points the finger at me, and he has that classic, famous, angry Harrison Ford look,” Guan said. “I’m going, ‘Oh my god, she probably thinks I’m a bigot and she’s going to tell me not to go near her.’ But he looks and points at me and says, “Are you Short Round?” I was immediately transported back to 1984, when I was a little kid, and I said, “Yeah, Indy.” He said, “Come here” and hugged me tightly.

Everything Everywhere All At One won a total of seven Oscars, including best director. Guan’s co-stars Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis won Oscars for best actress and supporting actress, respectively.
