In October 2015, California passed one of the most progressive equal pay laws in America. The California Fair Pay Act mandates equal pay for “substantially similar work,” as well as giving all workers the right compare salaries without retribution from employers. According to Patricia Arquette, the law will have a…
This past February, Patricia Arquette made an impassioned and unforgettable speech at the Oscars about the gender wage gap.

Larry Wilmore welcomed a panel of all black women on Thursday night's edition of The Nightly Show to tackle, among other topics, Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech about wage equality.
In troubling internet rumors that won't go away, the chances of a Lupita Nyong'o/Jared Leto courtship is looking more and more like a real possibility. According to sources, Nyong'o "isn't ruling out" a romantic relationship with Leto, but first he has to get his shit together.
Fox News' Stacey Dash thinks Patricia Arquette, winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar, should "do her history" before demanding equal rights. Dash will never be in Arquette's position as an award winner so her weighing in is like a mermaid telling me how to walk to work.
After enjoying a brief period of good will following a rousing , Meryl-approved speech about wage equality, Patricia Arquette, who last night won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Boyhood, took her feminist cause in an unfortunate (and tired) direction by saying that it's time that gay people and…
Patricia Arquette sobered up real quick and won the Oscar tonight for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Boyhood. Here's Arquette accepting her award and making a powerful plea for equal pay.
Here's a disheveled and already drunk Patricia Arquette doing an interview with ABC's Lara Spencer right before the start of the 87th Annual Academy Awards.

The 20 stars nominated for Academy Awards this year represent some of the most talented (or, anyway, famous) actors on screen today. At one point, however, they were slack-jawed, blank-eyed, no-name novices. They’d probably like to forget their often humiliating early work, but thanks to the magic of technology, they…
"It's important to me as an actor to be able to make a living (but) I'm going to tell you something—I paid more money to my babysitter and my dog walker than I made on Boyhood," Patricia Arquette, who just won a Golden Globe for her troubles, told WENN.
Saturday night at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, things were hit and miss on the red carpet. There were ensembles that were very good! But there were also some that were very bad. And a few that were terribly ugly. Let's take a look.
Over the weekend in Washington, DC, celebrities converged at the annual White House Correspondents ' Dinner, rubbing elbows with journalists and political types. What does one wear to hear President Obama make jokes about himself? Full-length gowns and bare shoulders.

- Betty White is on the cover of Parade magazine, and inside, she discusses her views on gay marriage.
On Sunday's premiere of HBO's Boardwalk Empire, an actress wore a pubic wig to compensate for her own modern aesthetic. Mostly, merkins are employed to sidestep more restrictive MPAA ratings, but our collection of famous fake fur is still NSFW.
- Apparently Madonna's 52nd birthday party over the weekend — which cost $100,00 — was incredibly dull.
There was something in the water in California last night, forcing otherwise well-dressed people to deck themselves in shockingly horrible getups. Maybe all of Hollywood lost a bet. All I know is, my jaw is permanently anchored to the floor.
