Chiwetel Ejiofor got the surprise of a lifetime at the Oscars!

Ryan Seacrest caught the 12 Years a Slave star off-guard when he presented the actor with a sweet message from Chiwetel's sister Zain Asher, a reporter for CNN.

In the message, Zain wished her brother the best of luck, and her sweet words were accompanied by an image of the Best Actor nominee and his sister when they were children.
