2014 Best Supporting Actress Winner

Boyhood

7-19-2014Boyhood

I couldn’t help but notice that my nominations here differ from the critical consensus more than all of my other acting awards do, and yet my final winner is the same as everyone’s.  I would suggest that Arquette has managed this awards run by tapping into some universal truth about motherhood, but I don’t actually think that’s the case.  Rather I think she’s been appealing to people by having created a very specific and very interesting character that becomes recognizable in her specificity.  Oh, and that last scene before Mason goes to college, powerful stuff.
