Oprah’s taking her snub in stride though and taking the time to acknowledge a Hollywood newcomer. Winfrey posted a photo of herself and Lupita N’yongo. N’yongo recently burst onto the scene as Patsy in 12 Years A Slave.

She’s now nominated for Best Supporting Actress and the odds are definitely in her favor. After seeing Oprah’s post, Lupita shared the image with a very grateful message thanking Winfrey for her support.
In other news, Orange Is The New Black star Michelle Hurst recently awoke from a 16-day medically induced coma. According to TMZ, Hurst, who plays Miss Claudette on the show, was placed in the coma so that doctors could operate on her spine to repair injuries she sustained following a car accident. Michelle is said to be recovering in the ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.
