Jamie Lee Curtis shares sweet reason she gave her Oscar statuette they/them pronouns

Jamie Lee Curtis is on a high that no one can take away from her following the Oscars.

The Everything Everywhere All at Once star visited the Today show earlier in March to discuss her great achievement, her experience as the proud owner of a coveted Academy Award, and her plans for referring to her statue.


Curtis remarked, “The desire for recognition and admiration for your efforts is universal.” “No matter what job you do, you want to be valued by someone.” And this is a really beautiful, glittery thank-you gesture.

The 64-year-old actor’s performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once earned her her first Academy Award.


“Both my dad and my mother received Oscar nominations in separate categories,” Curtis remarked. “I won an Oscar right now!”

She thanked her family and everyone who has supported her “genre movies” since she started her career in 1977 during an emotional acceptance speech.

Curtis made a virtual appearance on the Today show on March 14 and told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie that she was still in shock.


“I’m really touched by the entire thing, and I never in a million years imagined that I would have these few days.”


Curtis gave a beautiful explanation for her decision not to give the statuette a name when asked if she had come up with one.

She would be referring to her Oscar statuette as they/them in remembrance of her 26-year-old daughter Ruby—Curtis disclosed in 2021 that her youngest child was transgender.

The actor declared, “I’m having them be a they/them in support of my daughter Ruby.” “They are doing fantastic; I’m just going to refer to them as ‘them,’ they/them.”

They’re getting settled in.

Sad revelation

According to Jamie Lee, there is a significant learning curve when a youngster comes out as transgender.

She remarked, “It’s speaking a new language.” It involves picking up new vocabulary and jargon. I’ve never done it before. I’m not trying to act like I know a lot about it. I’m going to fail at it, too.

“I’m prone to making errors. She then on, “I would like to try to avoid making big mistakes.”

“You still make mistakes; I’ve made two mistakes today. Because we are human.

However, it will have been worthwhile if just one person reads this, sees a photo of Ruby and me, and decides, “I feel free to say this is who I am.”

Ruby, who hails from a Hollywood dynasty, has lived a private life and is currently employed as a video editor for a YouTube gamer celebrity.

“I was aware that Ruby had a boyfriend. Ruby had used the word “bi,” and I knew that. But sexual orientation and gender identity are two different things, according to the two-time Golden Globe winner.

Jamie, aww! We’re very happy that you’ve prevailed. It was greatly earned and had been a long time coming.
