Lupita Nyong’o is officially an Academy Award winning actress.

On Sunday night, the Kenyan beauty took home her very first golden statue for her role as Patsey in Steve McQueen’s, 12 Years a Slave. The poised, Yale graduate, who beat out Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Sally Hawkins and June Squibb was moved to tears when accepting the award for Best Supporting Actress.

“Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. And so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own,” she said.

Nyong’o continued, “Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting in this position this has been the joy of my life,” she said as she broke down. “Chiwetel, thank you for your fearlessness and how deeply you went into telling Solomon’s story.”

“When I look down at this golden statue may it remind me and every little child that no mater where you’re from, you’re dreams are valid.”

Lupita, who stunned in a custom Prada light blue silk gown, has dominated this award season. The 31-year-old, who won her first SAG and Critics Choice Award earlier this year, also took home an Independent Spirit Award on Saturday night.

What an incredible weekend for the star!

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is amazing. I would not be the person I am today with out her.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
