Patricia Arquette took home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Boyhood.

“Thank you to the Academy, to my beautiful, powerful nominees,” said Arquette at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles on Sunday in acceptance of her award.

The award, one of the most coveted of the evening, was presented to her by Jared Leto. This is the first Oscar of her career.

Up against incredibly stiff competition, Arquette, 46, beat out Laura Dern for Wild, Keira Knightley for The Imitation Game, Emma Stone for Birdman and Meryl Streep for Into the Woods.
