Patricia Arquette walks away with Emmy award for best supporting actress

Once again, a StartTV star makes a big impact on the American academy!

On Sunday, September 22, Medium star Patricia Arquette was awarded an Emmy for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the limited Hulu series The Act. The series is based loosely on the real-life story of Gypsy Rose Blanchard, whose mother made false claims concerning her overall health and wellness. Arquette plays Dee Dee Blanchard, Gypsy Rose's mother. Arquette is no stranger to the awards stage; currently, she holds 12 awards from various organizations. In 2005, she even took home an Emmy for her role as Allison DuBois on Medium.

In her heartfelt acceptance speech, Arquette turned her attention toward recognizing another individual in her life.

“In my heart, I’m so sad I lost my sister Alexis and that trans people are still being persecuted,” she reminded the audience, referring to the passing of her sister in 2016. “I’m in mourning every day of my life, Alexis and I will be the rest of my life for you until we change the world so that trans people are not persecuted and give them jobs.”

Arquette then made a request of the crowd as she concluded her advocacy-driven speech. “They are human beings, let’s give them jobs. Let’s get rid of this bias that we have everywhere.”

During many of her acceptance speeches, Arquette takes the opportunity to point the attention at current political climates, always aiming to make inclusivity and acceptance a priority for society. In 2015, Arquette won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Boyhood, a movie filmed over the course of 12 years documenting the life of a growing boy named Mason.

Her acceptance speech during this ceremony was focused on closing the wage gap, a highly controversial topic still being discussed today. Arquette said, “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s time to have wage equality once and for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”
