MANILA, Philippines – Patricia Arquette took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as single mother Olivia Evans in Boyhood. The awards show was held Sunday, February 22 (February 23 in Manila).
“To every woman who gave birth, to every citizen and taxpayer, it’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women of the United States of America!” she said in her speech, using the opportunity to speak for her cause, while thanking those involved with the film.
In the film, Olivia Evans is a single mother who raises daughter Sam (Lorelei Linklater) and Mason Evans, Jr. (Ellar Coltrane), kids from her previous marriage to Mason Evans, Sr. (Ethan Hawke). Ethan himself is a Best Supporting Actor nominee. Boyhood was shot over 12 years, with the actors aging along with the story as time passes.
Her previous roles include playing medium Allison Dubois on tv series Medium, which earned her an Emmy win in 2005. She also starred in films like Bringing Out The Dead, Stigmata, and Hi-Lo Country. She is currently starring as cyber-psychologist Avery Ryan on CSI spinoff CSI: Cyber.
