Like I said at the top of the blog today – no dress punched me in the face with the real and true “best” at this year’s Oscars. Everything felt so … safe. So… subdued. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was a general lack of imagination. I mean, Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock were practically wearing the same thing. Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o went back to burnt orange last night for the premiere of Non-Stop last night in LA. On anyone else, this would have been a tacky mess. On her, it’s exquisite. And once again, her hair is the porn. Two parts and an ode to Bobby Brown.  Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o won Best Supporting Actress at the NAACP Image Awards this weekend. And she could very well be holding on to a Best Supporting Actress Oscar 6 days from now at the Dolby Theatre. I think I might lose my sh-t when she arrives on the carpet. It might be the fashion porn mystery of the season: who will Lupita be wearing? Because everyone wants to dress her. Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o, the brightest star of award season, was on Ellen. Ellen asked about those Jared Leto rumours. You see how quick she was with her response? It’s really too bad the audience didn’t react accordingly. The audience, it would seem, is behind Lupita on gossip. Lupita knew about Miley and Jared before the people in Ellen’s studio. Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o did not win the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress. The British decided to honour Jennifer Lawrence instead. So even though Lupita’s been cleaning up for weeks, it might not be the sure thing they keep saying it is at the Oscars. If I had a ballot that counted, my vote would go to Lupita, obviously. Full Story

Page Six ran a report today about how Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto might be checking each other because they went out for dinner the other night and also about how she and Chiwetel Ejiofor hooked up during filming of 12 Years A Slave but she ended it as soon as production was over. Full Story

Chiwetel Ejiofor was not at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon yesterday. Michael Fassbender wasn’t either. And Brad Pitt was absent too. So it was left to Lupita Nyong’o to represent 12 Years A Slave as a nominee for Best Supporting Actress. She’s the film’s only sure thing as Ejiofor sits a distant third, if that, behind Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio for Best Actor, Fassbender won’t stand up, and the movie’s in a tight fight for Best Picture. Full Story

Because you know, they get criticised. They get sh-t on for diversity. And on the front page, we have Idris Elba, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts, and George Clooney. Full Story

Lupita Nyong'o sat courtside at the Knicks game yesterday and everyone wanted a piece of her. Look. She's the most popular girl at MSG. She's the most popular girl on the award circuit. Even more popular than Jennifer Lawrence since people (unfairly, arguably) seem to be tired of the Jennifer Lawrence. Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o is now the frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress Oscar. And she’s playing the pole position perfectly. Which means Jennifer Lawrence’s chances are pretty sh-t and, unlike, say, someone like Jonah Hill, she doesn’t seem to mind. In fact, it actually seems like she’s happy the pressure is off her. Full Story

The Screen Actors Guild made some stupid choices at the SAG Awards the other night. Like, I love Helen Mirren but even she knew that shouldn’t have been hers. And HOW is Maggie Smith the best over Kerry Washington and Anna Gunn? F-cking Downton Abbey. So it’s not just the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that votes out of their asses. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Lupita!

So gracious, so charming, so popular – easily the most popular last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards as everyone wanted a moment with her…because Lupita Nyong’o is definitely having a moment right now. And she won the Best Supporting Actress award over American Sweethearts Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence which makes Saturday even more interesting. If Lupita can take it at the SAGs, just as Academy voters are filling in their ballots, we might just see her ride that all the way to the Dolby Theatre on March 2. And I can’t wait to see what she’s wearing. Last night it was a white Calvin Klein and I actually prefer over the red cape from the Golden Globes. It was lovely, yes. But as you know, red on a red carpet will never take me over the edge.

Watch her acceptance speech below.  Read Full Intro

The very first whispers of the Golden Globes kissed my fingers through Twitter this year, and what it said was “Lupita Nyong’o in…Ralph Lauren? Really?”  Over and over again this sentiment came up. Until everyone saw the dress, and then everyone had to change their tweeting to tired jokes about Kelly Osbourne’s hair. Full Story

Steve McQueen shouted out Brad Pitt at the very end of his speech last night. “Wherever you are”… get your ass in campaign mode. 12 Years A Slave won, yes. But the momentum right now is for American Hustle and Gravity. Oscar nominations are coming down this Thursday. Everybody else is out there hustling. Full Story
