Indiana Jones Stars Harrison Ford and Ke Huy Quan Made Fans Emotional by Sharing a Heartwarming Hug at Oscars

Epic Indiana Jones reunion after 39 years!

The 95th Academy Awards ceremony took place on Sunday, March 12, at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Like every year, the attendees saw many happy, sad, nostalgic, and emotional moments during the show.

One of the most emotional and nostalgic moments that made the guests teary-eyed and broke the internet was the epic reunion between Indiana Jones and The Temple of the Doom actors – Harrison Ford and Kay Huy Quan.

Ford, 80, took the stage to present the award for the Best Picture category, and it went to Everything Everywhere All at Once.

To receive the award, the former child star of Indiana Jones, Kay Huy Quan, joined Harrison on stage along with his castmates and the film’s creative team.

And then everyone witnessed the sweet reunion between him and Harrison as the two shared an emotional hug onstage.

According to PEOPLE, “Ford presented the cast and directors with the award and embraced Quan when he went onstage. An excited Quan jumped up and down before appearing to happily give Ford a kiss on the cheek.”

Quan also received an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for the same movie.

“oh my god, Ke Huy Quan immediately running up and hugging Harrison Ford,” one wrote on Twitter.

“Steven Spielberg watching Harrison Ford and Ke Huy Quan. I’m crying!” a second wrote,

“ke huy quan hugging harrison ford and spielberg cheering in the crowd what a moment,” a third said.

“Ke Huy Quan and Harrison Ford hugging onstage after the EEAAO win is one of the most joyful full circle moments I’ve ever seen at an awards show,” someone said.

“Find someone who is as happy to see you as Ke Huy Quan is to see Harrison Ford,” said someone else.

“As a child star, Quan made a lasting impression in the second Indiana Jones film when he played a precocious orphan named Short Round.  But after starring in the classic 1985 film The Goonies, Quan’s acting prospects gradually dried up,” wrote Daily Mail.

“He transitioned into roles behind the camera, working as a stunt coordinator and assistant director.”

After the success of Crazy Rich Asians, the 51-year-old The Goonies actor resuscitated his acting career.

Speaking about Quan’s Oscar nomination in January, Ford said,

“I’m so happy for him. He’s a great guy,” he told ET. “He’s a wonderful actor. He was when he was a little kid, and he still is. I’m glad. I’m very happy for him.”
