Lupita accepted her award in a white Calvin Klein gown that accentuated her glowing brown skin. The crowd roared with applause after she gave an emotional speech thanking Julia Roberts for taking a picture with her brother and acknowledged her competitors.
Afterwards, Lupita posed for a picture with Oprah who posted the image on her Instagram with the caption, “My favorite photo of the night at Broadcast Critics Award.
