Even President Joe Biden thinks Ke Huy Quan is a national treasure
May 11th, 2023 under Ke Huy Quan, Politics. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, we fell in love with Ke Huy Quan when he starred in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Goonies.

Then this year, we just adored his sincere delight about being recognized by Hollywood again. He was as excited to see all of the celebrities at events as they were to see him. And he couldn’t control his happiness when he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Everything, Everywhere, All at Once.

His joy made brought joy to all of us. So much so the Vietnam native is an American treasure.

And I hope that is what President Joe Biden declared that yesterday when he met the actor at the White House. How could POTUS not make that declaration after that greeting?

I am sure that little boy on the boat with his family never thought he would someday be invited to the 1600 Penn. But he was! And that is what America is all about.

Quan is living the American dream, and I hope we never wake up from it!


Pauly Shore has a message for his two Encino Man co-stars

Pauly Shore might’ve been the star of Encino Man, but it is his co-stars, Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan, who are nominated for Oscars this year.

How does the comedian feel about them being up for Oscar gold? “I’m very excited for my two costars from Encino Man; both nominated this year for Oscars. It’s quite remarkable. It’s an insane story. These guys — what a comeback. It’s almost like they were in Encino Man, they dethawed them, and they’re coming back to life, he told Good Morning America. “Congratulations, guys. Good luck, bros.”

Shore says he is going to watch the Oscars on Sunday to see if Quan wins Best Supporting Actor for Everything, Everywhere, All at Once and Fraser for Best Actor in The Whale.

Hopefully, they will each bring home an Oscar statuette and decide to make Encino Man 2 with Shore and past Oscar nominee Sean Astin. Maybe it will get The Weasle a nom from the Academy Awards so that he can have one like his co-stars.

Who would’ve thought that Encino Man would turn out so many people worthy of Oscars?


Who would’ve thought that 2 actors from Encino Man would get Oscar noms?
January 24th, 2023 under Brendan Fraser, Ke Huy Quan, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]

Encino Man was a fun movie. However, there was nothing Oscar-caliber about it.

Alas, that was 30 years ago, and today Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan found out that they are Oscar-worthy. Fraser is nominated for Best Lead Actor for The Whale, and Quan could take home Best Supporting Actor for Everything, Everywhere, All At Once. Not bad for a defrosted caveman and a computer nerd!

They are not the only actors from the 1992 film to receive a nomination from the Academy Awards. Sean Astin was nominated in 1995 for Best Short Film, Live Action for Kangaroo Court.

How is Pauly Shore going to weasel his way into getting a nomination? We shall see!

A mini-Goonies reunion!
December 21st, 2022 under Ke Huy Quan, Mackenzie and Sean Astin, Reunions. [ Comments: none ]

They say that Goonies never die, and neither does their friendship. Sean Astin and Jeff Cohen came out to support their friend Ke Huy Quan at the 20th annual Unforgettable Gala which celebrates the achievements of the Asian and Pacific Islander community in entertainment.

This event started 17 years after their little movie came out. So, it just goes to show you special their brotherhood, and that movie is. Even though it has been 37 years, nothing can come between them and our love for them in that whimsical film.

Now, give us a sequel.


The cast of Goonies reunited!

Back in 1985, the Goonies took over the big screen, and they have won the hearts of kids ever since then. That is why the love of the movie will never die.

So over the weekend, Corey Feldman, Josh Brolin, Ke Huy Quan, Keri Green, Jeff Cohen, and bad guy Robert Davi reunited to honor their late director Richard Donner.

Seeing them all together makes me wish they would finally make a sequel. This way, us, kids at heart, can feel like kids all over again with them.
