It's unlikely that anyone had a better award season than 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o, but if we had to come up with someone, it would be her younger brother, Peter Jr. We were first introduced to Peter when the actress brought him as her date to the Palm Springs Film Festival back in January. Since then, Peter has supported his famous family member at multiple award season events and was by her side on Sunday night, when she took home the Oscar for best supporting actress.

One only needs to look to Peter Jr.'s Instagram page to see that he's having just as exciting a year as his sister; he's gotten to go to some pretty sweet industry events, where he's mixed and mingled with A-listers like Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (he even made sure to get in on that record-breaking Oscars selfie!). Just like anyone in his position would do, he's been documenting his brushes with Hollywood heavyweights through social media. You're doing strong work, Peter Nyong'o Jr — and we salute you. Here are 18reasons why Lupita's little brother owned award season.
