 In the new interview, Lupita opens up about how she felt in the moments before she took home Oscar gold. "I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy," she tells the mag. "It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital."

She certainly has become Hollywood's new "It" girl, and she describes the past year as "phenomenal." 

"As brilliant as it was, onward ho. I hope that I will get to work soon," she admits. "In due time, what I should do next and what I want to do next will reveal themselves. I am not in the business of trying to top this year – that’s virtually impossible. I’d have to be pronounced the queen of England or something."

We can't wait to see what this young star does next!
