When I started my career as a child actor on ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,’ I felt so lucky to be cast. And growing up, I began to wonder if that was it. For many years, I was afraid that I had nothing more to offer, that I would never surpass what I achieved as a child. Fortunately, more than 30 years later, two guys thought of me. They remembered that child, and gave me the chance to try again.”, stated the actor.

Quan will compete with Brian Tyree Henry of “Causeway”; Judd Hirsch of “The Fabelmans”; Brendan Gleeson from “Banshees on Inisherin” and Barry Keoghan from “Banshees of Inisherin.”

In addition to the Quan nomination, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has been nominated for Best Picture, Best Director (Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert), Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh) and Best Actress (Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu). ).
