Oscars 2014: Lupita Nyong'o has touching reaction to Oscar win (GIF)

The Oscars are known for their interesting moments, and while Ellen’s handing out of pizza during the ceremony was one thing, the acceptance of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar by Lupita Nyong’o was a much more traditionally touching Oscar moment.

She was the slight favorite to win the Oscar but she had Jennifer Lawrence right on her heels the whole race — well, until Nyong’o was finally announced as the winner for her role in 12 Years a Slave.


The role was her first major role ever and it has landed her an Oscar, but she wasn’t anything but humble about the win. It was also the first major win for 12 Years a Slave, which hasn’t been cleaning up awards quite like we thought it would but the win for Nyong’o more than made up for the snubs elsewhere as she was deserving of the award.
