Patricia Arquette on Oscar win: I keep forgetting it happened

If you ask Patricia Arquette what she thinks about her Oscar win, you'll likely be reminding her she won an Academy Award in the first place.

While on a set visit for her CBS TV series "CSI: Cyber" in Los Angeles last week, we asked the recently-minted Oscar winner how she feels months after taking home the best supporting actress honor for the coming-of-age film, "Boyhood."

"I really keep forgetting it happened!" she told CBS News, adding, "It's like some really weird, mirage dream thing."

It marked Arquette's first Academy Award nomination and win. She also won a Golden Globe, along with Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and a New York Film Critics Circle honors for her role in the critically acclaimed movie. The film, which co-stars Ethan Hawke, was directed by Richard Linklater and shot in spurts over the course of 12 years.

"I knew when he [Linklater] first opened his mouth and told me about it that it was going to be something special. Now if it was going to be something anyone would see, I definitely didn't know that," said Arquette, who said she still stays in touch with Linklater and her fellow cast members.

Arquette, meanwhile, is busy shooting "CSI: Cyber," which returns for a second season on Oct. 4.
