Lupita To Battle Winfrey For Oscar Nominations

Movie critics claim that the Best Supporting Actress race is wide open. The race is 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).

One 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."
