Lupita vs Oprah and Julia Roberts for Oscar nominations

12 years a slave fassbender

What do Lupita Nyong’o, Oprah Winfrey and Julia Roberts have in common?

They have all been nominated for the Best Supporting Actress for the Oscars.
Some movie critics have claimed that the Best Supporting Actress race between Kenyan actress Lupita Nyongo (12 Years a Slave) and two Hollywood bigwigs Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) and Julia Roberts (August: Osage County) is wide open.

One particular critic wrote: “Nyong’o doesn’t have the same name recognition as Oprah, but if you were to compare the two performances it’s quite obvious, to me at least, who gives the better performance. In fact, I don’t know how Oprah could campaign against Nyong’o and hold her head high. Winfrey could walk around and accept whatever kudos and adulation fall upon her shoulders, but to actively campaign for an Oscar, claiming acting superiority would be rather naive.”
Ms Nyong’o we have your back!
