Actress Lupita Nyong’o left mouths agape when she strutted onto the Golden Globes red carpet in a stunning caped, Ralph Lauren red number and then once more, in an elegant Gucci turquoise gown at the SAG Awards.

But nothing compares to her younger brother Peter’s reaction when he heard that his sister received an Oscar nomination for her role in 12 Years a Slave.

“I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY SISTER! #HAPPY CLAP ALONG IF YOU FEEL LIKE HAPINESS IS THE TRUTH!! @lupitanyongo GOING TO THE OSCARS #notimeforclothes,” he wrote on Instagram while dancing jubilantly to Pharrell’s “Happy.”

Lupita’s take on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon: “He’s amazing! He lives in an exclamation point!” Watch his super happy reaction above and see if the beauty takes the trophy home when the 86th Oscar Awards air on ABC March 2.
