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.
