Lupita Nyong'o Gets One of 12 Years a Slave's NINE Oscar Nods!!!

Ugh! What a beautiful woman! Lupita Nyong' o is absolutely gorgeous, and extremely talented. We saw her very raw acting ability in 12 Years A Slave, and it's paid off for her! This morning as the Oscar Noms rolled out, it was obvious that the hit film would be a big player in hollywood's biggest night. 12 Years a Slave earned nine nods, led only by Gravity and American Hustle which tied with ten nods.

All three films are in the Best Film and Best Director categories, which are arguably two of the most coveted of the night, and for good reason. There were many great movies to come out this year, and the competition was fierce, so who wouldn't want to be deemed the best out of them all?!

Considering the historic relevance and at times harshly realistic scenes in 12 Years a Slave, it is great to see it respected by the Oscars. The lead actor in the film, Chiwetel Ejiofor also got a nod for Best Actor which is incredible!

It's going to be a wonderful night for all involved in the film that depicts the story of  freed slave Solomon Northup. This film deserves all of the nominations it received, because this it's not only a roller coaster to watch, but an incredible story that needed to be spread to the masses!
