The News Minute | February 23, 2015 | 10:06 am IST  Patricia Arquette who won the Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress trophy for "Boyhood", could perhaps also be awarded for the best Oscar speech this year.  When she went to stage to accept her award, she took out a piece of paper to read out her speech. She began by thanking her family and colleagues and then went on to talk on a topic which perhaps is often side-lined- equal wages for men and women.  Arquette said, “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights,” she said. “It is our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America!” Best moment of #Oscars2015 so far: #PatricaArquette's speech.
