Not only did The Critics’ Choice give “12 Years a Slave” the top award for best picture, Lupita Nyong’o wowed the audience with her acceptance speech as she accepted her award for best supporting actress. Her speech brought Oprah Winfrey to tears and received a standing ovation from the audience.
If there was ever any apropos time to say bow down, this is.
By the way, Lupita knows that we think she’s flawless!
