Earlier this week, we reported on a few controversial headlines announcing 12 Years a Slave’s major Oscar win at the 86th Annual Academy Awards. It appears that the Denver Post and the News-Gazette are in company.

Variety tweeted: “Slave” Actress Lupita Nyong’o Wins Oscar in Film Debut.”


Maybe people were so overcome with emotion for the film and its actors that they lost all ability to think clearly.

Thoughts on these headlines?
