Exclusive: Surprised? Oprah Winfrey Reveals Her Favorite Film Of 2013

Oprah Winfrey isn’t shy to admit that she loves her own film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler.

While on the red carpet for the 20th Annual Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, the TV mogul, who was nominated for her role as Gloria Gaines in the Lee Daniels’ directed flick, shared with HIpHollywood that her favorite film of 2013 was The Butler.”And 12 Years a Slave and 12 Years a Slave,” she added.

12 Years a Slave, a top contender this award season, was nominated for 4 SAG awards, but walked away with just one victory. Newcomer and rising star, Lupita Nyong’o was recognized by her fellow SAG members for her role as Patsey in the historical adaptation.

“Being recognized by fellow actors is an honor of the highest order and I want to thank all of you so much,” she said as she accepted her award. “I want to thank the man without whom this would not be possible at all, Solomon Northup. Thank you so much for a life well lived a story hard to tell but told so well.”

“Thank you Steve McQueen,” the actress continued. “Thank you for taking a flashlight and shining it underneath the floor boards of this nation and reminding us on what it is we stand on.”

On Friday, Fox Searchlight re-released 12 Years a Slave into 700 theaters nationwide just in time for Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. King gave his “I have a dream” speech not far from where Solomon Northup was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841.

So while on the red carpet, HipHollywood caught up with a few stars about what the late Dr. King meant to them. “He sought to make us all better and make us all kind of connect in a more honest way and accept that we are different,” 12 Years a Slave co-star said.

“Freedom, civil rights,” Boardwalk Empire star, Michael Kenneth Williams, told HH. “In my heart I believe that partly why I’m here I owe it to him to be accepted as an equal and to be given a chance to express my talents in what I love to do.”

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
