Three recent Oscar winners were at the Palais tonight for the opening of the Cannes Film Festival: Lupita Nyong’o Natalie Portman Julianne Moore What do you wear on a Cannes carpet? Think of it like the Oscars… tweaked Euro. There is no such thing as too much. So Julianne’s deep cut, feathers, and sparkles? Perfect. Full Story

The airport in Nice (closest airport to Cannes) is like a red carpet today. So many celebrities arriving ahead of the festival’s opening gala tomorrow. Including Lupita Nyong’o. It’ll be her second year. But I'm not sure if she’s ever been on the tapis rouge. Can’t find any shots of her at the Palais last year. Full Story

The Force is awake, and it’s strong

Today is the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Anaheim, California—basically a Comic-Con Hall H presentation without Hall H—and JJ Abrams and the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (or however that title officially goes) debuted a second teaser trailer. The movie doesn’t come out till Christmas, so we have plenty of time for full-blown plot-revealing trailers, but there’s a lot of new footage and information to digest. Full Story

There's a shot of Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto from last night taken from behind them. And they were hanging out at the Vanity Party too. And coming off their SAG heat a few weeks ago, that's what we want to see, right? Possibilities? Well. Full Story

Heat. SAG Heat. That was the title of my post yesterday about Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto – click here for a refresher. As mentioned, my Video Assumption was that the way they were interacting with each other – as he pulled her closer while they were presenting and how she leaned back into him with his arm around her just off centre stage – was a sign of … something. Full Story

It’s all in the Video Assumption. And Video Assumption is all about interpretation. My interpretation? Heat. Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto presented together last night at the SAGs. The winner was Mark Ruffalo who wasn’t there. So Jared edged Lupita over to talk into the microphone. Full Story

Who’s the Lupita of 2015?

NO ONE! There’s only one Lupita Nyong’o every year but this year, none of the nominees are really breakouts in the way that Lupita was a breakout. The closest, I guess, would be Felicity Jones. But there’s not the same buzzzzzzz surrounding Jones. And, you know, another reason there’s no Lupita of 2015 is because, well, the Oscars certainly don’t look like Lupita this year, do they? Happily, Lupita will be there as a presenter since she’s the reigning Best Supporting Actress Oscar winner. Full Story

Her purple lilac dress was stunning. It wasn’t just a lovely colour, the design of it was such that the colour seemed to drip down her body from her chest, as though she was covered in purple paint. Amazing. But the dress is only 80% of the equation. Her hair is great, her makeup is great … The specs are killer. Full Story

Red is a big colour for Lupita Nyong’o. Remember at the Golden Globes? Lupita in that caped Ralph Lauren? That’s when EVERYONE took notice. That’s when she went next level. And then she won the Oscar. My ma the Chinese Squawking Chicken says that everyone has a colour. And that certain colours serve different purposes for different people. Full Story

Lupita Nyong’o was in New York last night to receive her Glamour Woman of the Year Award. She wore white and gold. She was a goddess. The right kind of goddess – with responsibilities. “I am still a work in progress,” she told the audience. “To be woman is to be human. Full Story

Lupita of the single name

Sarah Posted by Sarah at November 4, 2014 17:09:18 November 4, 2014 17:09:18

She’s at that level, right? I don’t even need to say her full name. Lupita Nyong’o is a beautiful name, but if I just say “Lupita”, you know who I’m talking about. Musicians do it—Cher, Beyonce, Madonna, Britney, Adele, Lorde—but there aren’t as many actresses who command the same single-name power. Full Story
