Nigeria’s renowned international actor Chiwetel Ejiofor last night failed to grab an individual Oscar but he shared in the glory as 12 Years a Slave, the film that brought him to global acclaim, won three awards at the colourful event held in Los Angeles.

Ejiofor (shown in photo), last month won the best actor’s award at both the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards and the 2014 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards. He, however, lost the Oscar Best Actor Award to Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club).

That notwithstanding, Ejiofor had much to celebrate when 12 Years a Slave won the Best Picture award in addition to one of the cast, Lupita Nyong’o, winning the Best Actress in a Supporting Role award and 12 Years a Slave also picking the Best Adapted Screenplay award.
