After nabbing the gold for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave at last night’s 86th Annual Oscars, actress Lupita N’yongo couldn’t find the words to express her emotions about her primetime victory.

“I don’t know yet. I am still living it, you know? I hope I remember it all.” the Yale graduate told E! News.

She was not the only one winning on Oscar night. Her brother, Peter, got to photobomb the night’s most retweeted selfie with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, and Kevin Spacey.

“I think that’s his win for sure,” she said. “He got into the most famous selfie in the world. I’m glad I could have facilitated that.”
