Lupita Nyong’o Receives Standing Ovation During ‘Critics Choice’ Win [Video]


Lupita Nyong'o wins Critic's Choice Awards
We were sad to see Lupita Nyong’o overlooked at last Sunday’s Golden Globes, but yesterday, we were relieved to see the red carpet darling finally win an award for her powerful work in 12 Years A Slave.

Dressed in a killer Calvin Klein gown, the Yale graduate took the stage at the Critic’s Choice Awards to receive her “Best Supporting Actress” win. Once she got over her stage fright, Lupita gave an eloquent and adorable acceptance speech that had everyone, including Oprah, on their feet.

Watch the beautiful moment below.
