Jamie Lee Curtis thanks 'Everything Everywhere' castmates, late parents in touching Oscars speech
Jamie Lee Curtis achieved a career milestone with her first Oscar win, but she knows the victory was a team effort.
Curtis, who won the award for best supporting actress during the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday, gave an emotional acceptance speech thanking those who have supported her, both professionally and personally.
"I know it looks like I am standing up here by myself, but I am not. I am hundreds of people," the "Everything Everywhere All at Once" star said. "My bae Michelle (Yeoh), Ke (Huy Quan), Stephanie (Hsu) – the entire group of artists who made this movie – we just won an Oscar."

The 64-year-old actress went on to thank her family – "my beautiful husband Christopher Guest, our daughters Annie and Ruby" – as well as the moviegoers who have supported her throughout her decades-long career.
"To all of the people who have supported the genre movies that I have made for all of these years, the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people, we just won an Oscar together," Curtis continued.
Curtis also gave a heartfelt shoutout to her late parents, actors Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis.
"My mother and my father were both nominated for Oscars in different categories," a teary-eyed Curtis said as she looked upward. "I just won an Oscar."
