Lupita Nyong’o may be an Oscar winner and People’s “Most Beautiful Woman In The World,” but Jimmy Kimmel pointed out how news reporters are still mangling her name.


“Lupita is unquestionably beautiful but her name is not easy to pronounce, which made it a tough day for our nation’s news anchors,” the late night host explained.

On Wednesday, the editing team at “Jimmy Kimmel Live” pieced together a hilarious montage of broadcasters butchering the star’s unique name.

“I wish people had asked John Travolta to announce Lupita Nyong’o's name,” Kimmel jokingly added. “He did such a nice job at the Oscars.”
