A few moments before bursting into tears, she honoured her late parents, Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, with a tribute. "Both my parents won Oscars in different categories, but I just won one," she said. Curtis' father, Tony Curtis, earned a nomination for Best Actor for The Defiant Ones in 1959. 

Her iconic role in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho earned her the Best Supporting Actress nomination in 1961. The actress expressed her feelings about being nominated for the same award as her mother earlier this month by saying it felt like a lineage connection.

During the Independent Spirit Awards speech

In his speech at the Independent Spirit Awards, Curtis admitted that he hadn't considered that. "I knew it, I was aware of it," Curtis said. "I never imagined this would happen. My parents' fame and stardom were so legendary that I never imagined I would be able to reach their level. This is a beautiful link. It's a lineage link." 

His first Academy Award nomination and win were for Everything Everywhere All At Once. For Everything Everywhere All at Once, she defeated Angela Bassett, Hong Chau, Kerry Condon, costar Stephanie Hsu, and other nominees Angela Bassett, Hong Chau, and Kerry Condon.
