Up & coming actress Lupita Nyong’o is on a roll!
The 30 year-old looked flawless while posing on the red carpet of the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday, January 16th. Best know for her role as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave, the budding actress took home a trophy after winning the “Best Supporting Actress” category.
At the end of her emotional speech, she dedicated her win to her late uncle who always supported her:
On one of the last performances he saw me in, he said, ‘You’re good. But let’s see what Hollywood thinks of you.’ He didn’t live to see this day, but I’m sure he’s proud of me.
Aside from her Oscar nomination, Nyong’o is up for the “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role” for this year’s 20th Annual SAG Awards, which airs on tomorrow, Saturday, January 18 at 8/7pm CST on TNT and TBS. Let’s see how well she does! More pics after the jump!
