Five years ago, The Act was released on Hulu to wide acclaim, and Patricia Arquette even won a Primetime Emmy Award for her supporting role on the eight-part miniseries. Fast forward to today, and the show has emerged as one of Hulu’s hottest shows currently streaming, thanks to its subject, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, being back in the headlines after her release from prison.
