So, Patricia Arquette is... everything. Not only was she able to let loose, have a little fun and celebrate the night with a couple (read: many?) drinks, she also gave an incredibly empowering acceptance speech when picking up her Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in Boyhood.
"To every woman who gave birth to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else's equal rights," Arquette said. "It's our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America."
We weren't the only ones who rejoiced—Meryl Streep kind of lost it, demonstrating exactly how we were feeling. Oh, and Jennifer Lopez's reaction is not to be forgotten, either.
