March 3 (Bloomberg) -- Lupita Nyong’o, who plays an abused field hand on a Louisiana plantation in “12 Years a Slave,” was awarded the Oscar for best supporting actress.

Nyong’o prevailed over four others including last year’s best actress, Jennifer Lawrence, nominated for playing the estranged wife of a con artist in “American Hustle,” and 2001 winner Julia Roberts, in the hunt this year for playing the daughter of a pill-addicted mother in “August: Osage County.”

The 86th Academy Awards ceremony is being hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and broadcast live on the ABC network from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
