Ironically, Nyong’o was the last Black actor or actress to receive the award which she got for her supporting role in 12 Years A Slave. The Kenyan/Mexican actress stated in an Instagram post that she was “disappointed by the lack of inclusion in this year’s Academy Awards nominations.” In conclusion, she said, “I stand with my peers who are calling for change in expanding the stories that are told and recognition of the people who tell them.”
