"To all of the people who have supported the genre movies I have made for all these years, the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people, we just won an Oscar together!" she shouted, alluding to her early career in horror and "Halloween" legacy.
She concluded her speech in tears, referencing her parents Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh saying, "And my mother and father were both nominated in Oscars in different categories ... I just won an Oscar."
This marks Curtis' first Oscars win and nomination. She's received several accolades this awards season for her critically-acclaimed performance in "Everything Everywhere All at Once." In addition to the Oscar, Curtis previously won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
She also received nominations at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards and BAFTA Awards.
