12 Years A Slave star, Lupita Nyong’O is Critics’ Choice Best Supporting actress for 2014. The fast rising star trashed down 2012 Oscars Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence as well as TV mogul Oprah Winfrey to grab the lone award.

Nyong’O who dazzled in a white sleeveless gown, flawless make up and signature dark natural hair couldn't help holding back tears over her big win.

It’s for certain that the small Kenyan native is making a big splash in Hollywood and there seems to be no stopping her as she prepares for the forthcoming Oscar Awards with her film, 12 Years A Slave,  scoring 9 solid nominations.

Well, at least she got a genuine congratulatory hug from the famous black entertainment billionaire herself – Oprah Winfrey – as a sign of encouragement and support for her hard work.
