Patricia — who played a struggling single mom in ‘Boyhood’ — beat out other A-list actresses including Emma Stone (‘Birdman’), Imelda Staunton (‘Pride’), Keira Knightley (‘The Imitation Game’) and Rene Russo (‘Nightcrawler’) at the annual British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards show in London.
“Thank you so much my incredible fellow nominees it’s such an honor to be nominated with you,” she said in her speech.

“Thank you for including me among these beautiful performances both British — Felicity, Rosamund — and American — Amy and Reese — I’m honored to be honored with you tonight,” she said.
“To the five Scottish women who poured love into me — my great-aunts May, Mary and Cissy, my grandmother Flora and my mother Anne — this is for you,” she continued.
