 "Lisa Kudrow is PERFECTION in this. I love her." - Fernando

The Golden Rise of Lupita Nyong'o

Sure, she lost the Golden Globe last night to JLaw's razzle dazzle in American Hustle, but is there anyone conscious of social media / the internet / the movies who doesn't think Lupita Nyong'o has emerged as a winner* last night? She'll win numerous Best Dressed lists for the Ralph Lauren cape look even if she doesn't have a statue to go with it.

This is Lupita, overachieving, in the last 9 days alone! We'll leave it to this Best Supporting Actress to figure out how to top these looks come SAG weekend and Oscar night.

 Palm Springs, W, AFI, LAFCA, Golden Globes



The Darling of the Red Carpet is certainly a more flattering title than "Queen of the Fields" as Master Epps horrifically dubs his abused Patsey in 12 Years a Slave

Aren't you dying to know what else Lupita has in her to show us onscreen? Here's to Hollywood and its most powerful directors shaking off their perpetual issue with black actresses (rarely giving them multiple chances to shine) and allowing her the run of the place. Let's give Viola and Lupita their pick of roles for the next couple of years -- we'd all surely reap the rewards. 


*anyone other than Julia Louis-Dreyfus that is, who tweeted this cuteness last night in the Globe aftermath

She's so elegant! You basically have to vote for the red, but I love the AFI dress as well.

Perfection. I don't think I can handle her flawlessness.

She really is stunning! I wanted her to win last night, but she's not Katniss so oh well. I wasn't at all shocked or outraged like so many seemed to be. I still think the Oscar is hers (it better be, for JLaw's sake because the backlash will be huge).

j.Law's backlash is already brewing.

Why would anyone feel sorry for that backwoods hillbilly (Lawrence)? Bitch is from Kentucky and swears like a sailor, I doubt she needs her fans protection from the onslaught of internet hate. In fact, I'm not even mad at her for winning. I want nothing more than anything for McConaughey to lose at the Oscars, I don't care who wins there, as long as it's not him.

A bit disappointed that louis dreyfus didn't win,lovely film and a real honest funny performance,i want to be her friend.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermark

mark - loved her in "enough said" too, a very sweet movie. hopefully she gets to do more movies.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

Looking at her can Be deeply depressing. How can we look at our own faces in the mirror after looking at hers.?

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

What I like about Lupita's style is that she always looks fashionable, but never fashion victim fashionable.

Louis-Dreyfus was so much fun last night. That was a great running gag.

I love that with over 235 votes, the vote tally actually lives up to the name of the post with each look garnering more votes than the previous one.

I really like Jennifer Lawrence, but seeing her win yesterday really was akward. Way to start the show. It felt wrong and stupid. Jennifer herself seemed embarrased, she didn't want it, she didn't want to go up there: "Don't ever do this again" - I think she meant it.
I really hope they don't repeat this at the Oscars, for the reasons discussed ever since her Silver Linings swap.
Granted, it seems like that sort of crazy thing the Globes do, but the Oscars don't. But I also thought that about the Christoph Waltz win for "Django Unchained"...

This was the only loss of the night that I was actually pissed about... but she did indeed look like perfection in red.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMark The First

Not a huge fan of the Palm Springs gold, but those other four are to die for. I can't recall anyone killing the awards fashion scene this much... not even Helen Mirren or Cate Blanchett.

January 13, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

I can't believe this is the same person who was in 12 Years a Slave; she's absolutely gorgeous.

YES YES YES, a thousand times yes. Just give them both every role there is.
