Jamie Lee Curtis has won her first ever Academy Award.
She scored Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in Everything Everywhere All At Once.
The room inside The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood leapt to a standing ovation when her name was read out.
Curtis was up against some stuff competition in the category and was competing against the likes of Angela Bassett (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin), Hong Chau (The Whale) and Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All At Once).
The actor was quick to mention that while she's standing on the stage by herself, there were many people who helped her get to this point.
She credited the cast and crew of the A24 movie she was a part of, her incredible team, her family, and the fans who have supported her through the 'genre movies' that she's made over the years.
Curtis then ended her speech mentioning her parents, who had both been nominated for Oscars in different categories, and choked back tears as she drank in her moment.
