This Black girl rocks! After an incredible awards season and slaying the red carpet with her flawless fashion, actress Lupita Nyong’o took the gold, winning Best Supporting Actress for her role in “12 Years A Slave.”
Looking like an ebony dipped Cinderella in a sky blue Prada gown, the visibly shaken actress thanked director Steve McQueen, and co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender.
Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. 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. So I want to salute the spirt of Patsy for her guidance. And to Solomon for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting me in this position. This has been the joy of my life. I’m certain that the dead are standing about you and watching and they are grateful and so am I.
Congrats to Lupita! Well done!
