Patricia Arquette has bagged the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the 2015 Oscars for playing Olivia Evans in Boyhood.

Seems like years and years of hard work finally paid off, when Arquette decided to be part of Richard Linklater's magnum opus. The actress portrayed the role of mother to Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and Samantha (Lorelei Linklater) over the course of 12 years. It was a tough part to play and Arquette nailed it with her portrayal of a single mother raising two kids the best way she can. Richard Linklater directed the movie and Ethan Hawke also stars in the film as Mason Sr., the father who is an occasional presence in the lives of his chidren.

This is Arquette's first Oscar win. She also won the BAFTA, Critics' Choice, Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award for the role this year.

Arquette also thanked "every woman who gave birth" and spoke for the equality of women, and wages in the United States of America.
