Lupita Nyong’o Clinches Yet another Prestigious Award

And the awards keep coming…The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) has named Lupita Nyong’o Best Supporting Actress for her role, Patsey, in Steve McQueen’s harrowing slavery drama, 12 Years a Slave.

Founded in 1975, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) is comprised of Los Angeles-based, professional film critics working in the Los Angeles print and electronic media.

Meanwhile, Lupita will receive the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala Jan. 4 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

In February she will co-star with Liam Neeson, Michelle Dockery and Julianne Moore in the Universal Pictures thriller “Non-Stop.”

Film Festival Chairman Harold Matzner called her film debut “outstanding.

“She delivers a raw and deeply moving performance that serves as the fulcrum for the film’s message of the inhumanity of slavery,” he said.

Congratulations are in order for this screen goddess.
