Jamie Lee Curtis gives Oscar trophy “they/they” pronouns in support of daughter Ruby

Jamie Lee Curtis gave her 2023 Oscar trophy gender-neutral pronouns in “support” of her youngest daughter Ruby.

The newly crowned Oscar winner won her first Best Supporting Actress Oscar on Sunday (March 12) for her role in Best Picture. Everything everywhere at once.

While speaking to NBC’s Today The show’s co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie introduced the golden statue to Curtis on Tuesday (March 14) and said, “Here they are.”

“Have we given her a name? Does she have a name?” Guthrie asked before Curtis quickly corrected her and said, “In support of my daughter Ruby, I’m letting her be a ‘she/her.’ I’ll just call her “they”.

“You’re doing great. They’re settling in,” she added, looking visibly emotional.

“I never thought in my life that I would have those few days and I’m very moved by the whole thing.”

Following her win that night, Curtis shared her thoughts on the “complicated” issue of gender-neutral awards in the Oscars press room.

She described the win as “surreal” and said she would like to see more women nominated in the future, while wondering how to ensure those who don’t respect gender division feel included.

“Inclusivity then of course involves the larger question of how do you include everyone when there are binary choices?” she asked.

“[It’s] very difficult and as a mother of a trans daughter I totally understand that.

“And yet I fear that de-gendering the category will narrow opportunities for more women, which is something I’ve worked hard to try to encourage.”

Curtis and her husband, American-British screenwriter and director Christopher Guest, share two daughters Annie, 36, and Ruby, 27.

In 2021, Ruby publicly revealed that she was transgender.
