The results are in! Patricia Arquette walked away with the prestigious award of best actress in a supporting role for her part in “Boyhood” at the 2015 Oscars.
Arquette, who portrayed Olivia Evans in the 12-year period film, was up against Laura Dern (“Wild”), Keira Knightley (“The Imitation Game”), Emma Stone (“Birdman") and Meryl Streep (“Into the Woods”) at the 87th annual Academy Awards.
In Arquette's acceptance speech, the actress thanked the Academy and those involved in the making of "Boyhood."
"[Thank you to] our whole cast and crew -- my 'Boyhood' family who I love and admire," the actress began. Arquette concluded her speech by addresing wage equality. "To every woman ... we have fought for everybody else's equal rights. It's our time to have wage equality," she shouted.
The camera then cut to Streep and Jennifer Lopez who went wild with cheers.
