Patricia Arquette Oscars - H 2015

The Oscar-winning actress will present her new series 'CSI: Cyber' at the festival.

Oscar-, Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Patricia Arquette will add a new trophy to her display case this week. 

The Monte Carlo Television Festival will honor the Boyhood actress with a lifetime achievement award. Arquette will receive the honor, the Crystal Nymph Award, at the opening ceremony for the 55th Monte Carlo festival on Saturday.

Arquette is traveling to Monaco to present her latest small-screen effort, CSI: Cyber. A spin-off of the CSI franchise, it stars Arquette as agent Avery Ryan, a cyber-psychologist who works with the FBI to solve crimes.

"Patricia is one of today’s most talented dramatic actresses, and it is an honor to present our prestigious award to an Academy, Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning performer," said festival CEO Laurent Puons. "Patricia is a truly international actress, and she will add star wattage to this milestone edition of the Monte Carlo Television Festival."

International television audiences also know the 47-year-old actress for her long-running role as Alison DuBois on Medium, for which she won the best actress Emmy in 2005.
