The day after: Lupita Nyong'o says she hasn't "slept a wink" since winning an Oscar

Lupita Nyong'o must be floating on cloud nine right now! The Kenyan actress was on Live with Kelly and Michael earlier today & when asked by Kelly Ripa whether she'd build a trophy room for all her awards season wins "I think I have to," replied the actress, before reconsidering.

"I really have to get a two-bedroom apartment!"

24 hours after winning Lupita feels like she's still dreaming. "It hasn't set in," she said. "I haven't even slept! It is overwhelming, but at the same time, this is the thing I dreamed for, it's the thing that I availed myself for. I'm just trying to allow myself to absorb it all."
How brilliant was her acceptance speech? I think I've watched over a million times!

"Twelve midnight came and this," she said, holding her Oscar, "did not disappear." 

Lupita hit the town last night to celebrate her victory & she confesses that she felt a wee bit stingy with her shiny statute "The first half of the night I was being very, very selfish. I wouldn't let anyone even take a picture with it."

"No one was holding it. But then, it's really heavy," she added of letting her guard down a bit.

When Kelly's co-host Michael asked whether he could hold her prize, Nyong'o said he could, "for three seconds!" 

Lol! I love it! Check out the video below:
