Jared Leto Thanks “My Future Ex-Wife Lupita” And Many, Many Others In His Indie Spirit Awards Acceptance Speech

Jared Leto Thanks "My Future Ex-Wife Lupita" And Many, Many Others In His Indie Spirit Awards Acceptance Speech
"My future ex-wife, Lupita, I’m thinking about you."

Knock on wood, but Jared Leto and his beautiful ombre man bun will probably be taking home an Academy Award tonight for playing a trans woman in “Dallas Buyers Club,” but he probably won’t get as much time on stage to say thank you as he did at last night’s Film Independent Spirit Awards. I loved his full acceptance speech — which included a funny but still swoon-worthy shoutout to maybe-paramour Lupita Nyong’o — so much that I wanted to post the full transcript, which you can find after the jump. Watch the edited version, which aired on television, above. Good luck tonight, Jared! We’re rooting for you.  Keep reading »

Yetsreday ESSENCE magazine bestowed Lupita Nyong’o the Best Breakthrough Performance Award at their 2014 Black Women in Hollywood luncheon for her Oscar-nominated performance in “12 Years A Slave.”

While receive this honor, Lupita gave an acceptance speech which was both heartbreaking and inspiring. She spoke about Black beauty and the times as a young adult that she felt unattractive for being so dark-skinned. She only saw lighter-skinned women on TV; as a child and adolescent, Lupita shared, she used to pray to God to make her skin lighter so she could be as desirable as them. Today, as a successful actress, she hears from young women who feel that same way right now.

Here is Lupita Nyong’o's full speech from last night, via ESSENCE. It’s extremely touching and well-worth a read: Keep reading »

Vanity Fair‘s Hollywood Issue Has Equal Number Of Black & White Stars On The Cover

Vanity Fair‘s annual Hollywood Issue hits stands any day now, but the cover image has already hit the internet. The three-page-gatefold cover (the third page of the gatefold is after the jump) features six Black actors and actresses and six white actors and actresses, the former either indicating that the mag decided to get with the program or a sign that important films starring Black performers were impossible to ignore this year. Regardless, I am pretty damn pleased with this lineup of cover stars, which includes the radiant Lupita Nyong’o and Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years A Slave”), Michael B. Jordan (“Fruitvale Station”), and Idris Elba (“Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”). I am also really digging Jared Leto’s dashing cover look and Bree Larson’s understated beauty. But I could really, really do without Julia Roberts smack dab in the middle, kicking back in Elba’s lap. Not trying to be a hater, but amongst that array of talent, her role in “August: Osage County” wasn’t worthy of the front cover, while Lupita was pushed onto page two. But that’s a fairly minor quibble, I guess. Now, when can I get my hand on a copy so I can absorb every word of that long-awaited Gwyneth Paltrow hit piece? Keep reading »
