Lupita Nyong'o still can't believe she won the Best Supporting Actress award at Sunday's Oscars.

The 12 Years a Slave star, who gave an emotional and inspirational acceptance speech, spoke with E! News' Catt Sadler after her big victory. "What will you remember most about tonight and this win?" Sadler asked the humble movie star, who is a proud graduate of the Yale University School of Drama.

"I don't know yet. I'm still living it," said Lupita said, still in a daze. "I hope I remember it all."

But there's another moment she'll never forget: being in the most retweeted selfie ever! Host Ellen DeGeneres invited the actress—plus Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie—to pose for a photo op.

Lupita's brother, Peter Nyong'o, photobombed the star-studded snapshot. "I think that's his win for sure," she said. "He got into the most famous selfie in the world. I'm glad I could have facilitated that."

The 31-year-old Non-Stop star felt like the belle of the ball in her Prada gown—and indeed she was! "It was designed for me," Lupita said of the ethereal, bespoke design. "I had a hand in it, and my stylist, and we were inspired by champagne bubbles because this is cause for celebration, don't you think?"

It certainly was, Lupita. It certainly was.
