David Arquette wore his emotions on his sleeve on Sunday as he interviewed sister Patricia Arquette ahead of the Oscars.

Patricia is nominated for her work in Richard Linklater‘s “Boyhood,” making her the first member of the Arquette clan to be so recognized. During the interview, David asked how the pair’s mother, Brenda “Mandi” Arquette, who died in 1997 after a battle with breast cancer, informed her character in the film.
