Lupita Nyong'o, Oscars

With this Oscar season finally winding down, it's about time we take a look at what's next for our winning director, writers and actors. While Cate Blanchett has already finished two Terrence Malick films and another "Hobbit" sequel, America's sweetheart Lupita Nyong'o is just getting started. Check out upcoming projects below: 

Alfonso Cuaron - Best Director for "Gravity"
Fresh off his win for Gravity, Cuaron's next project will be playing on a much smaller screen. "Believe", the show created by Cuaron and Mark Friedman, as well as being Exec Produced by JJ Abrams, will have a special preview at 10 pm on March 10 before premiering at its 9 pm Sunday time slot on March 16. Insiders say he's also working on a much smaller film, a complete 180 from the spectacle that was "Gravity", as well as producing his son Jonas' project, "Deseirto."

John Ridley - Best Adapted Screenplay for "12 Years a Slave"
Only the second African-American to win the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, Ridley has many options for his next move, but has an eye fixed on getting back into television. ABC has ordered a drama pilot that was written and co-executive produced by Ridley. Titled "American Crime," the show follows the personal lives of the players involved in a racially charged trial as their worlds are turned upside down. Ridley also wrote and directed "All is By My Side," a biographical film about Jimi Hendrix that screened in the Special Presentation section at the Toronto Film Festival, and will be screened at South by Southwest before being released in the UK this summer. 

Spike Jonze - Best Original Screenplay for "Her"
The notoriously picky Jonze, whose film "Her" has been revered by many within the screenwriting community, has yet to choose his next project, but we'll be waiting with bated breath for the announcement. 

Cate Blanchett - Best Actress for "Blue Jasmine" 
Blanchett was definitely the one to beat at this years Oscars for her devastating performance in Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine." Still, there's no sign of the Australian actress stopping anytime soon. Blanchett has already wrapped up filming for "The Hobbit," two of Terrence Malick's upcoming films and Disney's live-action "Cinderella." She'll also appear in Todd Haynes' ("Far From Heaven" and I'm Not Here") "Carol," about a young department store employee (Rooney Mara) who falls in love with an older, married woman, to be played by Blanchett. Shooting starts this month.

Matthew McConaughey - Best Actor for "Dallas Buyers Club" 
Undoubtedly one of the busiest working actors today, McConaughey has a lot lined up. With "True Detective" about to wrap its first season on HBO, you'd think McConaughey would want a break. It's not so. The Texas actor will appear in Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama "Interstellar," which will be released on November 7. He's also starring in Gus Van Sant's ("Milk" and "Good Will Hunting") drama "Sea of Leaves," about two men who meet in Japan's notorious "suicide forest." 

Lupita Nyong'o - Best Supporting Actress for "12 Years a Slave"
America's latest sweetheart Nyong'o is all anyone is really talking about. Still, the actress, whose first role was in "12 Years A Slave", hasn't been confirmed for anything new. She currently appears in a small role in the thriller "Non-Stop" alongside Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore, but for now she has nothing else slated. That will probably change very soon.

Jared Leto - Best Supporting Actor for "Dallas Buyers Club"
After a nice break from acting, Leto wowed critics and audiences alike for his performance in "Dallas Buyers Club." As of now, Leto isn't set to star in anything new, but will instead continue touring with his band 30 Seconds To Mars, who also released an album in 2013.
