Last night, Oscar-nominee Lupita Nyong’o beat out Jennifer Lawrence to win the Critics Choice Award for ‘Best Supporting Actress’, leaving the audience ‘in tears' as she dedicated the award to her uncle saying:
"I’d like to dedicate this to my uncle …who always came to watch every single play I was in … and on one of the last performances he saw me in, he said ‘You’re good, but let’s see what Hollywood thinks of you. “He didn’t live to see this day, but I’m sure he’s proud of me.”
