On Sunday, Lupita won an Oscar for being the best supporting actress for her role in the movie 12 Years A Slave, becoming the first Kenyan to win the prestigious award. What she achieved in such a short time sometimes takes others a life time. Some cannot even imagine it leave alone dream it. The likes of Brad Pitt, Will Smith and Leonardo Dicaprio have never won an Oscar. Now you know why Kenyans are so excited.
Anyway, Lupita is all grateful to her family, friends and fans. This was her thank you note on Facebook.
I WON!!! It still has not registered that I am the proud recipient of the#AcademyAward for Best Actress in A Supporting Role. What a magnificent day. Thank you again to the Academy and to all who put their time and good energy into rooting for me.
