    What has happened to Patricia Arquette since she won the Oscar? Usually actors will take advantage of the win and have great material to choose from.

    She was on the now-canceled CSI: Cyber from 2015-2016 (which premiered right after she won). I just looked at her IMDb and it says she has one movie in post-production, and three movies in pre-production, including Toy Story 4 and Kirsten Dunst’s The Bell Jar. 

    I don’t think that’s too bad, she simply chose to focus on tv immediately following her win.

    When your Best Supporting Actress win is a lifetime achievement award from the Academy not having a substantial follow up is pretty standard. Some people claim this means the category is cursed. Nope. Nature of award season creates hysteria over talent Hollywood is not invested in making happen. No different than minority and foreign newcomers in the mix. Nobody takes them too seriously for sustaining a film career afterwards. They can take their nod or win and go to a streaming or TV production to cash in. As there is very little for those groups to do in standard Hollywood fare.

    She didn’t even deserve the nomiation anyway, let alone a win. Poor it.

    She was fully deserving of her oscar. I don’t think she’s someone who qualifies for a lifetime achievement award.

    Don’t take the usage so literally. For a starlet in midlife to get their first and likely only Oscar nod and win it’s equivalent to a gold watch for their veteran status. The performance itself is a formality.

    It’s not that she chose tv “instead”. She was already more than signed to that show and filmed probably a couple of episodes when the whole campaign began. Same as Marcia Gay Harden when she won with that Richard Dreyfuss show.

    Also, Patricia Arquette is a very…particular…kind of actress, getting awards from a bunch of orgs doesn’t change that. She’s still the same type of actress. I don’t know if offers were just going to pour because of her win/s. And she also had this show that limited her right after her win.

    I’m not quite sure what this is supposed to mean but it’s clear to me that Arquette’s win was based on performance alone. There is no evidence that the Academy was particularly interested in her career beforehand. She swept the season largely because of her dedication to the role throughout 12 years, and because she gave the most moving performance in the film. Sometimes it really is that simple.

    No evidence? Actors know her. She’s a veteran starlet in midlife. She’s worked with major filmmakers and costars. The Academy wasn’t waiting for a special opportunity to award her no. But once an actor has a vehicle getting late career notices to warrant awards attention — especially in a transient category like supporting actress — it is as much about her career as it was for Streep in The Iron Lady. Another example Kim Basinger. Well liked veteran starlet who made good in midlife . Her win over Julianne Moore wasn’t performance based it was career narrative.

    I thought Patricia Arquette was the best of the five nominees when she won. I have always been a fan. I guess she was committed to CSI Cyber which limited her ability to do any other film. I know she is also busy with her humanitarian work as well.

    I know she has a coming-of-age comedy with Rainn Wilson set in the 80s in post-production and a couple of other projects in post-production as well, so she has been working. An Oscar win usually guarantees you a lifetime of work.

    Oops I just accidentally liked my own post. Just in case anyone thought I was an arrogant douche. I’m sure I’m not the first to suggest an unlike function.

    So are we claiming Mo’Nique was lying when she was told she was blackballed by Hollywood after her Oscar win?
