PATRICIA ARQUETTE: Oh, my God! I can’t tell you what this means to me. I’m a fourth generation actor. My family has been committed to acting for over a century, through feast or famine. My father, Lewis Arquette, taught me to approach work with compassion and gratitude, and taught me also how hard it is to make a living as an actor.
Rosanna, Richmand, Alexis, David, you were my first scene partners and my most powerful coaches. To all my acting teachers and coaches. I’d like to acknowledge my fellow nominees for their beautiful and solid work. Our cast and crew, Ethan Hawke,for your fierce commitment; Ellar Coltrane for your purity; Lorelei Linklater for your strength and your vulnerability. Richard Linklater,for showing me the beauty of this human experience, and how we all matter.
Thanks to IFC, Josh Sapan, Jonathan Sehring, John Sloss, Cathleen Sutherland, David DiCamillo, Molly Madden, Eric White. To my kids Enzo and Harlow, you are both perfect, the perfect kids for me. To my mother, Olivia, you are my hummingbird, you’re always with me. Thank you. [applause]
