Lupita Nyong’o may be an Oscar winner and People’s “Most Beautiful Woman In The World” — as Gossip Cop was the first to report – 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.”
