After taking home both a SAG and Critics' Choice Award, Lupita shared her thoughts on fellow red carpet fixture Emma Thompson , calling the iconic actress "a riot" and reflecting on that one time that Emma photobombed her on the red carpet . She also weighed in on the debatable pronunciation of "GIF" and shared adorable stories about her family, including how they reacted to her much-deserved Oscar nomination.
