Los Angeles: Actress Lupita Nyong'o says winning Oscar for her debut film was so overwhelming that she could not even sleep at the night.

The 31-year-old actress won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role in '12 Years a Slave', reported People magazine.

"It hasn't set in. I haven't even slept! It is overwhelming, but at the same time, this is the thing I dreamt for, it's the thing that I availed myself for. I'm just trying to allow myself to absorb it all," Lupita said.

Lupita Nyong'o says winning Oscar for her debut film was so overwhelming that she could not even sleep at the night.

The actress was possessive about the golden statuette.

"The first half of the night I was being very, very selfish. I wouldn't let anyone even take a picture with it. No one was holding it. But then, it's really heavy," she said.
