Lupita Nyong’o, the awards show darling and everyone’s favorite to win, has just taken home her first Oscar!
Everyone was rallying for Lupita’s win. After her name was called, literally EVERYONE wanted to squeeze her.
Director Steve McQueen.
Co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Brad and Angie.
Even Liza Minnelli weirdly snatched her up after her win.
