Best Actress in a Supporting Role

  • Sally Hawkins's (Blue Jasmine) parents were children's book authors.
  • Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA.
  • Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) received a master's from Yale School of Drama.
  • Julia Roberts's (August: Osage County) family knew Martin Luther King Jr.'s family. Coretta Scott King actually paid for Julia's mother's hospital bill when the actress was born, because the widow's children attended the acting school the Roberts family ran.
  • June Squibb (Nebraska) could be the oldest person to win an acting Oscar at 84, beating out Christopher Plummer, who won for Beginners at 82.
