    Gorgeous dress, I especially love the color! I’m happy she won. There’s hope that she’ll also win the Oscar. Fingers crossed!

  • Looselipz

    Her stylist deserves an award. I love the very avant garde vogue looks she’s been wearing. Of course she has the looks and body to pull them off beautifully.

  • Michele

    YEAH!!!!! She is GLORIOUS!!

  • Red

    She looks fantastic in all of her gowns.

  • Lulu

    Yes! Yes! Soooo beautiful and so happy for her.

    JLaw didn’t even show up at Critics Award. People would think twice before voting for her since she won last year.

  • yay

    omg she won and looks impeccable again. i think she has a good say in what she wants to wear cause she has out shined everyone else in the fashion stakes consistently, including her stylist’s own clients, i think she actually has an interest in fashion. gorgeous, sweet, smart, and talented girl, id love to see her in more movies. hollywood needs more women like lupita!

  • b

    @mike: Do people really hate her? I never got that impression.



  • alexandra

    i’m so happy she won!! and i believe she will win the oscar

  • Sara

    YESSS she beat out Jennifer!!!

  • Talita

    so happy for her!

  • Mickie

    Lupita looks absolutely lovely! I just love that gown and she wears it gorgeously. Stunning!

  • Jeanie

    Lupita looks gorgeous. Beautiful lady, beautiful gown, color style, and the eye shadow just pops.

  • Verity

    YES!! I hope she gets the OSCAR.

  • Cara

    Funny that in the last 7 years 3 wins for Oscar for the best supporting actresses have all been first time nominated black actresses…. And sorry that this look like it will #4 and black women make up what 5% US population, looks one group loves playing the race card every chance they get.,

  • Jayla

    @cara go play in traffic you troll. Lupita is wonderfully talented, can’t wait to see more of her on screen, stage and in print! My fellow handsome dan! (YALE GRAD)

  • amelie


    i’m sorry but learn your facts. the oscars are an international awards ceremony & black people make up approx 25% of the world population so if anything they are under represented at these things. the fact that this ethnic group is only ever nominated for supported roles demonstrates that there are not enough leading roles for women or men of colour. shame on your for making ignorant such comments.

  • boohoo

    @Cara: Jealous much…we the black women of the world don’t care what you thnk…buzz off!!!

  • Cara=bitter she’s a failure

    Cara: is it too warm in your mom’s basement or are you just miserable because your life did not turn out as wonderful as this smart Yale graduate? If 4 black women wonn best supporting actress, then how many white women have won overall? If other ethnicities don’t like it then they can push for more representation but Lupita, JHud, Octavia and Mo’Nique all deserved their awards. Go watch those movies again!

  • Tracy


    Sucks to be you doesn’t it? She’s fabulous and you’re not. Black girls rock!

  • Samantha Sophia

    Her win is well deserved, its sort of wonderful to see people live and exceed their dreams!!!

  • Malcolm

    I’ve seen both films and I think Jennifer is more deserving. She, Jennifer, really is the Golden future of Hollywood and I hope she wins the Oscar.

  • Ashlee

    She looked beautiful! I’m still surprised she lost the GG but I think she’ll take home the Oscar. JLaws a good actress but she was over-hyped in AH just cause she’s JLaw.

  • Plain Truth

    LOVE all the dresses she has worn recently! She is stunning!!

  • holly


  • where

    Where the hell are all the Black AMERICAN people? And by American I mean their ancestors were slaves in USA. Where????

  • puravik

    Congratulations. I’m so happy she won.
    And she looks amazing – that colour looks amazing on her and she’s so beautiful.
    Hope she wins Oscar too!

  • Helen

    Definitely my favourite look of the evening.
    And so glad that she won :-)

  • Isa

    I’m so happy for her ! She deserves it !

  • fakeCara #20

    fakeCara = You are a troll. Go away. Real Cara has said how beautiful lupita is. Lupita looks gorgeous in this dress. She deserved to win!

  • Ruby

    #20 is a woman who used the ID Vane NYC and andreaarmua and scottfan and Camparina azul on a spanish board. She has said many racist against blacks and latinas. Cara is a nice poster and VaneNYC racist woman took over her name.ON JJ she uses many IDS to insult celebrities and their mothers. Some of her IDs:

    Are you Serious
    casula observer
    Lucy R

    Ignore the racist crazy woman. Lupita is stunning!

  • amelie


    i’ve seen both films & Jennfier was just playing a parody of a New Jersy housewife. i just think that any other actress could have done the same thing. it was like something from SNL or FunnyorDie. at no point do you suspend disbelief & feel as if she isn’t “acting”. & she is also out- acted by every cast member.

    lupita is a more deserving recipient because you actually feel how authentic her performance is. just because she doesn’t have big hair & isn’t stumbling around with a wine glass doesn’t mean she isn’t acting!

  • Lee

    Beautiful – dress and woman.
    Congratulations Lupita!

  • no way

    Jennifer Lawrence, the golden future of Hollywood? That is SCARY!
