Ke Huy Quan thanks Steven Spielberg for giving him his start in Hollywood after winning Golden Globe

The Everything Everywhere All at Once star held back tears as he accepted his award.

Ke Huy Quan has won a Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Everything Everywhere All at Once.

The actor looked over the moon as he got on stage to accept the prestigious trophy and even looked like he was holding back tears at one point.

While he won the gong for a 2022 movie, Quan gave a shoutout to the man who gave him his first big shot at Hollywood fame.

"I was raised to never forget where I came from and to always remember who gave me my first opportunity," the 51-year-old said.

"I am so happy to see Steven Spielberg here tonight. Steven, thank you!"

He added: "When I started my career as a child actor in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, I felt so very lucky to have been chosen.

"As I grew older, I started to wonder if that was it. If that was just luck.

"For so many years, I was afraid I had nothing more to offer. That no matter what I did, I would never surpass what I achieved as a kid.

“Thankfully, more than 30 years later, two guys thought of me. They remembered that kid. And they gave me an opportunity to try again."

Quan stepped back from the spotlight after landing the Indiana Jones role as well as starring in The Goonies.

His role in Everything Everywhere All at Once marked his big screen comeback and he's been honoured for his performance.

It's certainly helped him restart his Hollywood career as he's scored a role in the 2024 movie The Electric State as well as the TV shows Loki and American Born Chinese.

"Everything that has happened since has been unbelievable," Quan said on stage at the glitzy awards ceremony.

"Dan Kwan, Daniel Sheinert, thank you so, so much for helping me find my answer.

"You have given me more than I could have ever hoped."
