“I know it looks like I’m standing up here by myself but I am not, I am hundreds of people. I’m hundreds of people. Where are the Daniels?” she asked in her emotional acceptance speech, starting to list all the people who helped her.

“Halloween” director John Carpenter was one of the first to congratulate the longtime horror star, twittering “Congratulations Jamie Lee! You are the bomb!”

“To all the people who have supported the genre Movies that I’ve made for these years, the thousands and hundreds of thousands of people, we just won an Oscar together!” she stated.
The actress then invoked her repo-baby status in her acceptance speech, mentioning her parents and their own Oscar nominations, and shouted the news of her win to the heavens.  “And to my mother and my father, who were both nominated for Oscars in different categories — I just won an Oscar!”
Curtis, the daughter of two Oscar-nominated actors, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, finally received her first Oscar nomination this year after a nearly five-decade career.

Curtis' achievement comes after she picked up the SAG Award for best supporting actress a month ago, following a host of other nominations for her hot dog-fingered performance, such as the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Independent Spirit Award.
The beloved actress was also nominated for a People's Choice award for reprising her role as Laurie Strode in Halloween Ends," the latest - and allegedly final - chapter in the "Halloween" franchise, which started in 1978 and turned Curtis into one of the greatest scream queens.
