As Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o puts it, her “permission to land has been denied” and she is still in a “constant state of elevation” after her big win at the Academy Awards two weeks ago thanks to the steady stream of flowers and balloons that are still coming in.
Today the Kenyan actress posted a sweet collage of the men in her life who helped her celebrate and prepare for her success this red carpet season. They include her father Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, brother Peter Nyong’o, best friend Ben Kahn, Academy Award Winner Sidney Poitier, glam squad members, and 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen. Sorry gossipmongers, Jared Leto is not included in the mix.
Besides, who needs a boyfriend when you have so many special men in your life, and an Oscar?!
