"To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else's rights" Arquette said, accepting the award.

Boyhood might just be Arquette's breakthrough movie role, after she made a name in television with roles like in the TV crime series CSI and her Emmy-winning turn as a psychic in Medium. In 2002, she was cast in Richard Linklater's ambitious project Boyhood, which was intended to film the story of young boy growing to adulthood in real time.
