Earlier in the day, Patricia, Ellar, and Richard celebrated the film’s six Oscar nominations at the 2015 Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon, which was also attended by Selma‘s Oprah Winfrey and Common.

“I can appreciate all the beauty of what’s meaningful about it. We gave so much of ourselves for 12 years. It’s such a rare movie. it’s never been done before because we are in a movie business and the concept of asking a financier to give you money 13 years before they can get [the film] is impossible. [Linklater's] movies have a more European sensibility but they’re so much about Americans that they don’t really fit in Europe and they don’t really fit in America. He has championed his own path,” Patricia shared about Boyhood at the luncheon.

FYI: Patricia is wearing Kurt Geiger London heels at The Wrap party.
