Wow, how times have changed!
Look how happy she is!
We saw it when she was photobombing Jared Leto AND being photobombed herself!
Plus, when she won, it was the 12 Years A Slave actress' time to shine and not only did she impress with her humility, but the moment itself was truly inspiring!
We just love EVERYTHING about her!
Lupita showed off her suhhweeeet dance moves with Pharrell!
When LuLu found out she won the award, she broke down with happiness and it was adorable!
Which brought on the infinite hugging of Lupita! Starting with Steve McQueen!
Liza Minnelli got in on the action!
Brad Pitt gave her a squeeze too along with Chiwetel Ejiofor!
And finally, Christoph Waltz got the last hug in when handing Lupita her Oscar!
Plus, hello, she was TOTALLY channeling Cinderella (& Scarlett Johansson) during her walk to get her statue!
When up there, LuLu showed off her adorable smile.
And decided to point out a very real truth about her Oscar-winning role.
She ended her speech with a very raw & inspiring truth, which only made us love her more!
Though, we do have to admit, she DID stiff Ellen Degeneres on the tip for the pizza guy! LOLz!
At least she WAS a good sport when J.Law tried to steal her statue!
And we can't forget her EPIC photobomb of Jared!!
We can't WAIT to see what else Lupita has in store for us in the future!!
