According to Curtis, the desire for approval and admiration for your work is a universal one. “You want someone to value you no matter what you do. And this is a really lovely, sparkly gesture of appreciation.
The 64-year-old performer of Everything Everywhere All at Once took home her first Academy Award for the role.My mother and father were both Oscar nominees in different categories, Curtis added. “I was awarded an Oscar!”
She made a tearful acceptance speech, thanking her family and all of the fans who have supported her “genre flicks” since she started her career in 1977. On March 14, Curtis virtually joined Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie on the Today show. She admitted there that she was still in disbelief.
The speaker remarked, “I never in a million years thought I would have these couple days, and I’m quite moved by the entire event.
Curtis provided the excellent explanation for her decision not to name the figure when asked if she had done so.
She would refer to her Oscar statuette as they/them in honor of her 26-year-old daughter Ruby (Curtis revealed her youngest kid was transgender in 2021).
The actor remarked, “I’m having them be a they/them in support of my daughter Ruby.” They are doing fantastic, so I’ll just refer to them as “them.”
They have settled in.
A painful confession
According to Jamie Lee, there is a high learning curve for a young person coming out as trans.
She explained, “It’s speaking a new language. “It involves picking up new vocabulary and terms. I’ve just started. I don’t profess to be an expert on the subject. I’m going to mess it up.
“I’m going to screw up. I’d like to attempt to steer clear of serious errors,” she added.
“You still make mistakes, and today I made two mistakes. We are people.
But it will have been worthwhile if just one person reads it, sees a photo of Ruby and me, and declares, “I feel free to say this is who I am.”
Ruby, who comes from a Hollywood dynasty and presently works as a video editor for a YouTube gamer, has lived her entire life out of the spotlight.
“I was aware that Ruby had a boyfriend. Ruby had uttered the word “bi,” and I knew it. However, gender identity and sexual orientation are two distinct things, according to the twice-winner of the Golden Globe.
Oh, Jamie! We’re overjoyed that you succeeded in the end. It was greatly merited and long overdue.
