19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards - Roaming Show

Lupita Nyong’o has started the year on a high note. Not only did she get an Oscar nomination yesterday for best Supporting Actress, she also took home a trophy for Best Supporting Actress at the Critics Choice Awards 2014 for her role in “12 Years a Slave”.

In a tearful acceptance speech, she dedicated the trophy to her late uncle Aggrey Nyong’o. “I’d like to dedicate this to my uncle Aggrey Nyong’o who always came to watch every single play I was in … and on one of the last performances he saw me in, he said ‘You’re good, but let’s see what Hollywood thinks of you,’.He didn’t live to see this day, but I’m sure he’s proud of me.”

You can watch the rest of her acceptance speech in the video below.
