    Yay! Chiwetel my lover!!!
    If Jim Parsons hadn’t been nominated I would have smashed my ipad on the floor. Lol. But on a serious note that guy is a good ACTOR. he makes Big Bang Theory what it is. I hope he wins.
    I see my favorites Downton Abbey and GOT got some love too. Nice. I’m also a fan of House of Cards and Scandal too so I’m happy for them but Big Bang Theory is my all time favorite!

    When will a successful Nigerian with dual citizenship EVER be described in Nigeria and abroad as a Nigerian-British or Nigerian-American? I LOOOOOOOOOVED Chiwetel and Lupita in that movie. That movie was AWESOME to the 10th power.

      He does not acknowledge that he is Nigerian, don’t lose sleep over that honey. Yes, he has Nigerian parents, but in his recent interview, he never acknowledged that. He is addressed the way he wishes to be addressed.

    They were phenomenal in 12 Years a Slave. You could feel their pain in the movie. I am very happy that they are being recognized for their hard work.

    My boo of life! How did I miss this “our” good news? Fantastic and well done, it’s refreshing to see a Nigerian actor (albeit more identified as British) being recognised by the major award committees and you’ve worked hard to get here.
    Congrats to Lupita too, what a great feat for a new African face in Hollywood. However, you’re looking too hawt in that blue number to be around my Chiwetel, please scoot back a few meters to the left…

    CANNOT WAIT TO SEE “12 Years A Slave”!! (It starts showing here in early Jan)

    I’m so happy for this Lupita babe.
    Fashion Police judged her as the Best Dressed for Golden Globes and this is her first Hollywood red carpet event.

    When will a Nigerian actor/actress(born n bred in Nigeria) be recognised by Hollywood?
