Ke Huy Quan turned emotional upon receiving the award, and after taking a few moments to compose himself, sent a message to his 84-year-old mother.

“Thank you, thank you…my mom is 84 years old, and she is at home watching. Mom, I just won an Oscar!” cried an emotional Quan, causing the audience to cheer on the loving gesture. “…[Thank you] to my little brother, David, who calls me every day just to remind me to take care of myself. I love you, brother,” added Quan.

Quan spoke about how his life had started on a boat, and he had to spend a year in a refugee camp, only to wind up here on the biggest stage of Hollywood. He called it the ‘Great American Dream’ and reminded viewers to never give up on their dreams.

Everything Everywhere All At Once leading the room with eleven nominations

Everything Everywhere All At Once swept the SAG Awards earlier with a record-breaking four wins, to which fans reacted largely cryptically, saying that the SAG Awards were setting them up for an Oscar bust, as has been the case with most movies, although the sci-fi comedy-drama fully deserves to go the distance at the Oscars.
