2023’s best supporting actress Oscar goes to Jamie Lee Curtis.
Jamie Lee Curtis is part of a lengthy history of actors, and now she has given her family an Oscar.
After winning the award for best supporting actress for her work as Deirdre Beaubeirdre in the hugely successful independent film “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Curtis paid tribute to her Oscar-nominated parents, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis. She portrays an IRS agent who assumes several identities while travelling through various multiverse timelines.
The seasoned performer earned her long-awaited first Oscar nomination.
Curtis stated as she won the trophy, “My mother and my father were both nominated for Oscars in various categories. I just scored an Oscar!
Backstage, when asked if her family are proudly keeping a close eye on her, Curtis responded with some genuine truth.
She declared, “I don’t think there’s a society where people are looking down on us. “In my opinion, we resemble them in our thoughts, deeds, and behaviours. We construct our own. We pass them on to our offspring, and life carries on as usual. They have produced me. I am happy to be their offspring. They would be so wonderfully proud of me, I know.
The nomination for Curtis comes over 60 years after the nomination for her mother’s supporting performance in “Psycho.” In 1959, “The Defiant Ones” earned her father a nomination for best actor.
The 64-year-old Jamie Lee Curtis became the eighth-oldest winner in the category’s history. Judi Dench, who formerly held the position for her part in “Shakespeare in Love,” was surpassed.
Who is Jamie Lee Curtis, who won Oscar at the 95th Academy Awards show?
American actress, producer, and author Jamie Lee Curtis, Baroness Haden-Guest, was born on November 22, 1958. She is considered a scream queen and is well known for her roles in both film and television. She is one of the most active actors in the horror and slasher genres. In addition to nominations for an Emmy and a Grammy, Curtis has won numerous awards, along with an Academy Award, a BAFTA, two Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a BAFTA. In 1998, she was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Not bad for Curtis, who had all but accepted the fact that she would never receive an Oscar nomination throughout her career. In a picture that she later shared on Instagram, the actor had a look of surprise on her face as she received the news of her nomination.
In addition to the “Halloween” franchise movies that began in 1978, Curtis has also starred in important movies like “Trading Places,” “My Girl,” “True Lies,” “A Fish Named Wanda,” “Freaky Friday,” and “Knives Out.” Yet, it was her role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once” that cemented her place in Oscar history.
Curtis yelled as she held her award, “To all the individuals that have backed the theme of movies I’ve done for all these years – the millions, thousands and thousands of individuals – we just received an Oscar together.
Last month, Curtis won the SAG Awards for best supporting actress.
In the competition, Curtis outperformed Hong Chau, Kerry Condon, Angela Bassett, and Stephanie Hsu.
