The 50-year-old actress took home the 2019 SAG Award in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries category for her role in Escape at Dannemora. Taking the stage to accept the honor, Arquette made sure to thank her fellow nominees, her family and all her co-stars profusely before getting down to business.
First, she called on all fellow actors to keep an eye out for “production companies that are not paying people their overtime and meal penalties.” Then, after her SAG/AFTRA business was done, she turned her attention to the White House.
“Thank you to Robert Mueller, and everyone working to make sure that we have sovereignty for the United States of America,” Arquette said, referring to the Special Prosecutor’s investigation into Russian interference related to the election of President Donald Trump.
