Lupita Nyong'o Oscars Nominees Luncheon Quotes

Lupita Nyong'o Keeps Showing Off How Worldly and Charming She Is

This year's Oscar nominees are hitting the annual Nominees Luncheon today to be celebrated ahead of the big March 2 show and to answer a few questions from the press. Breakout 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o stopped by the interview room and demurely answered a couple of questions — but the best answer came when she spoke in Spanish. When she was asked by a Spanish-speaking reporter about her Mexican roots (Nyong'o was born in Mexico City), Nyong'o at first answered in Spanish and then replied in English: "I have a warm place in my heart for Mexico, as I do for my other country as well, Kenya. I have been celebrated in both places and also America, as well, and that's a humbling experience. . . . That is the beauty of film, that it brings people closer together."

Nyong'o also talked about her expectations for her award-season experience, and she humbly answered, "I didn't expect anything. There's no way that I could have dreamt any of this stuff up. It has just been an incredible journey, and it just continues to be that. It's an adventure and an exciting one . . . and a very revealing one."
