From CNN's Lisa Respers France
In his acceptance speech after winning best supporting actor, Ke Huy Quan once again delivered an earnest and emotional speech, which spoke to never giving up on your dreams.
The former child star, who for years worked behind the camera after roles for him dried up, tearfully thanked his mother to start.
"My mom is 84 years old and she’s at home watching," he said. "Mom, I just won an Oscar."
He also thanked her for her sacrifices and paid tribute to his status as a former refugee.
"My journey started on a boat. I spent a year in a refugee camp and somehow I ended up here, on Hollywood’s biggest stage," Quan said. "They say things like this only happen in the movies. I cannot believe this is happening to me. This is the American dream."
He also paid tribute to his wife, Echo, whom he said "month after month, year after year for 20 years told me that one day my time will come."
"Dreams are something you have to believe in. I almost gave up on mine," he said. "To all of you out there, please keep your dreams alive."
Earlier on the red carpet, Quan mentioned that his family, including his brother whom he also thanked, had traveled from Houston to support him on Oscars night.
The actor has been the darling of the awards season as the comeback story of the year, moving many to tears with each of his wins.

Why Tom Cruise and James Cameron aren't at the Oscars
Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel mentioned in his opening monologue that both Tom Cruise and James Cameron were not in attendance, though he joked that perhaps Cruise was there, dressed as nominee Judd Hirsch.
While Cruise's blockbuster "Top Gun: Maverick" is nominated for best film, Deadline reported the star was skipping the show because of work.
Meanwhile, Kimmel mentioned there was some speculation that Cameron sat this one out because he had not been nominated in the directing category for "Avatar: The Way of Water," which is also nominated for best film.
Jimmy Kimmel says this year "the world finally got out of the house" to see movies in the theater

The host entered the stage for his opening monologue via parachute, in a reference to his opening "Top Gun" skit, cracked a joke about adjusting his "danger zone" and teased Nicole Kidman for her viral AMC Theatres campaign.
Kimmel noted there are 16 first-time nominees at this year's Oscars.
