Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o was all smiles as she waded through a sea of paparazzi at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) today. Nyong’o, 31, won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her role in 12 Years a Slave on Sunday. Lupita was upstaged by her lesser famous sibling Peter Nyong’o, who attends Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. Peter photo bombed a star-studded Selfie that was tweeted by Ellen Degeneres, who hosted the Oscars.

Ellen joked with Lupita on her talk show, saying, “Your brother is very famous now.”
“He upstaged me,” Lupita said. “He’s quite the performer.” Lupita said her brother “lives life in an exclamation point,” and he couldn’t avoid photo bombing Ellen’s Selfie.
“You can see him more than just about anybody,” DeGeneres said, referring to Peter obscuring both Lupita and Angelina Jolie in the Selfie that was retweeted over 3 million times on Twitter.com. The Selfie easily shattered President Obama’s previous record for most retweets.
