Remember When Lupita's Brother Had the Best Award Season Ever?

It's unlikely that anyone had a better 2014 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 of last year. After that, Peter supported his famous family member at multiple award season events and was by her side at the Academy Awards, when she took home the Oscar for best supporting actress. Ahead of this year's big ceremony, Lupita shared a sweet throwback photo on Instagram of herself and Junior, saying, "Fond Memories... #Oscars 2014 with my chivalrous brother."

One only needs to look to Peter Jr.'s Instagram page to see that he had just as exciting a year as his sister; he's got to go to some pretty sweet industry events, where he 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 documented his brushes with Hollywood heavyweights through social media. You did strong work, Peter Nyong'o Jr — and we miss you. Here are 18 reasons why Lupita's little brother owned the 2014 award season.
