Actress Patricia Arquette won an Academy Award last night for her role in “Boyhood.” Arquette also won spotlight for her passionate acceptance speech.

In her speech, Arquette said it was time for women to receive equal pay in the workplace. The speech was met with admiration, particularly by actress Meryl Streep, who practically jumped out of her seat with excitement.

In “Boyhood,” Arquette plays a single mom struggling to keep her family happy while still trying to find happiness herself. She received the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the Academy Award ceremony on Feb. 22.
