New York — Looking back, Lupita Nyong'o says the moments after she won her Academy Award this year were a blur and time stood still.

"It's not cute if you follow Jennifer Lawrence — it's not cute if you're the second one!" she laughed, referring to Lawrence's famous stumble while collecting her best-actress Oscar the year before.

The 31-year-old actress has a steady path ahead of her.

She will voice a character in Jon Favreau's take on Disney's The Jungle Book and landed a role in Star Wars: Episode VII. Plus she's going to co-produce and star in an adaption of the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie book Americanah, saying the story blew her away.
