For her portrayal as Patsey, Nyong'o received the Academy Award® in the category of "Best Supporting Actress" as well as multiple accolades including the Screen Actors Guild Award, the Critics' Choice Award, the Independent Spirit Award, and NAACP Award. She was last seen in the action thriller NON-STOP, opposite Liam Neeson, Michelle Dockery and Julianne Moore. Nyong'o is also a filmmaker, having served as the creator, director, editor, and producer of the award-winning feature-length documentary, IN MY GENES. A recent graduate of the Yale School of Drama's acting program, Nyongo's stage credits include playing Perdita in THE WINTER'S TALE (Yale Repertory Theater), Sonya in UNCLE VANYA Katherine in THE TAMING OF THE SHREW as well as being in the original production of Michael Mitnick's ELIJAH.
