When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid. -Lupita Nyong'o

Today I just want to bask in the beauty and grace that is Lupita Nyong'o. A true Cinderella story, dressed like the fairy tale princess in Prada, she won the Oscar last night for Best Supporting Actress for her role in 12 Years a Slave. She is an inspiration in the truest form. Congratulations, Lupita!



  1. I have yet to see that movie but I prefer to watch things that I think are emotional. The scenes they showed last night had me a little emotional as well. I'm so glad she won, and more importantly I'm so glad that she spans across for all women it's a beautiful thing. She deserves this so much, and I'm glad she's been slaying during all of these awards big and small.
