Many of Hollywood’s biggest stars gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night. Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the stars in attendance (March 12, 2023).
The actress who appeared on Halloween was recognized for her work in Everything, Everywhere, All at Once, the film that took home the top award of the evening. She triumphed over her co-star Stephanie Hsu to win the Best Supporting Actress prize and the Oscar.
“My mother and my father were nominated for Oscars in different categories,” Curtis explained in her acceptance speech. “I just won an Oscar,” a tearful Jamie Lee Curtis tells the audience.
A Winner Of An Oscar, Was Janet Leigh Ever?
The legendary actress Janet Leigh is Jamie Lee Curtis’s mother, making her a member of Hollywood’s most illustrious acting family.
Janet Leigh received just one Oscar nomination in the same category as her husband but was never awarded the prize. Due to her work in the 1960 film Psycho, Leigh received a nomination for the award for Best Supporting Actress.

Is Tony Curtis An Oscar Winner?
No, Tony Curtis did not take home any Oscars during his career. After a career that spanned sixty years, the late actor was considered one of Hollywood’s most famous actors.
The roles that Curtis played in some of the most successful movies of the 1950s and 1960s brought him most of his fame. His filmography includes roles in films such as Some Like It Hot, Spartacus, and Sweet Smell of Success, in which he played opposite Marilyn Monroe.
Tony Curtis received his only nomination for an Academy Award in the year 1959. Because of his work in “The Defiant Ones,” he was considered for a nomination in the “Best Actor” category.
Sidney Poitier, a Hollywood icon and Oscar winner who made history, was nominated for this award alongside Curtis, who played his co-star in the film. Curtis and Poitier were unsuccessful in their bids to win the prize for Best Actor, which was ultimately given to David Niven for his work in Separate Tables.
