The New York Critics Circle Awards announcements were done via Twitter yesterday and Kenyan-born international actress Lupita Nyong’o pulled a surprise win for her role in the last movie US.
Lupita scooped ‘Best Actress’ category for her role in US movie that premiered in June 2019.
The Horror film was written and directed by Jordan Peele starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker. The film follows Adelaide Wilson (Nyong’o) and her family, who are attacked by a group of menacing doppelgängers.
The NYCC Awards are chosen by critics from daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and online general-interest publications.
The Golden Globe nominations will be dropped next week and this is a great precursor for the Kenyan actress as we hope she scores some nominations.
