And the Oscar Award for Best Supporting Actress Goes to…

Lupita Nyong'o Wins Best Supporting Actress Oscar

Newcomer Lupita Nyong’o walked away with the coveted Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her gut-wrenching performance as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave Sunday night in Los Angeles.

“Yes,” exclaimed the 31-year-old actress as she hugged director Steve McQueen and her co-stars. Lupita thanked her family, her co-stars and her drama school during her emotional acceptance speech.

“It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s,” she said, referring to the suffering of African slaves in America.

“12 Years” was Lupita’s first ever feature film role. She was chosen from 1,000 young actresses who auditioned for the part.

Other major category winners included Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor for Dallas Buyers Club), Cate Blanchett (Best Actress for Blue Jasmine), Jared Leto (Best Supporting actor for Dallas Buyers Club), and actor Will Smith presented the Best Picture Oscar Award to 12 Years a Slave.

    Congrats to Lupita! I was so happy for her last night. She is showing the world a new type of beauty. I love how she plays around with fashion, and her hair.

    I wish people would stop asking how long do we think she is going to last? Stop being so dang negative!

    For the record, I think her dress is beautiful, but that neckline is in need of some chicken cutlets at the very least.

    Butter, they need to stop showcasing her non existent chest is all

  • spiceykay

    Good Morning everyone. I actually think you can’t wear that type of dress if you have big boobs or even medium size ones. It’s a very pretty color for her.

    I never heard of Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew should have won an Oscar years ago. Leo will never win an Oscar until he learns to speak his lines without distracting movie goers with that weird accent of his. :coffee:

    I don’t want to come off as a :hater: but I just don’t like the sternum look. It would just look SEW much better with some :tittays:

    I don’t mind the flat chested look. But I agree with Buttercup; the skeletal sternum look is not sexy. :nono:
