  • lulu

  • Joe

    @Christopher Teoh:

    Again congrats to Lupita she deserved it, no need to talk bad about the Jen Lawrence or the other actresses in the category. Just enjoy that Lupita won!!!

  • Ande

    “Doesn’t matter where you are from.. Your dreams are valid”
    Congratulations Lupita!

  • Sol

    So lovely!

  • Tracy

    Yes!!! Very much deserved for this beautiful, talented lady!!

  • one trick pony

    not attractive enough to hold one in lala land

  • Dontmeantoberudebut

    Queen? Oh please, enough of the slave movies! And enough with the fake phony compliments. If you think she is so attractive then I know for a fact that someone better bring up Jayne Kennedy now! I rather look at that woman right now than have to look at this man who won for best supporting actor. Where are the attractive Black WOMEN? Where??? Why wear a plunging neck gown when you have a huge scar in the middle of your pecs? Ugh, Hollywood was run out of people with looks, I’ll tell you that right now.

  • adjusting contrast

    Not racist after all.
    We’ll see who wins Best Pick though.
    Will The Academy relapse?

  • Tracy


    You’re an idiot and a nutjob….get help….fast.

    “Jen Lawrence has Nick Hoult on one side and Bradley Cooper on the other y’all draggin her for tripping but y’all are the ones whining at home while she’s at the Oscars drownin in dick so who’s the real winner here”
    “Whatever happens tonight, please remember that Jennifer winning doesn’t mean she’s a racist or that Lupita winning means Jennifer didn’t give an Oscar-worthy performance. Both are charming, talented women who have a big career ahead of them so don’t pit them against each other for something they have absolutely no control about. Hate the Academy all you want, but don’t hate them. ”

    thought some of you hating on Jen needed to read that.
    other than that, congrats Lupita!!!! you’re a princess!

  • Tazmin

    They need to make a rule at the OSCARS that giving shout-outs to your children at home is not allowed. It is very off-putting and not the place to be doing your own little agenda. One woman said, “My children would never forgive me if I didn’t say hi to them… “hi blah and blah!” Go away you annoying cow!!!

  • kat

    It is a given already that Lupita would win. The others were great too, no doubt, but Lupita was just simply the best this year.

  • one trick pony

    not the best
    just great PR for the academy

  • Merchelle

    She is the BEST!!! I love the dress:)

  • dang

    @Merchelle: no, she’s not

  • sarah


  • dang

    @Dontmeantoberudebut: lololol
    thats funny

  • willy_wanker

    why mention the part about your dream is valid? She comes from an influential family…

  • Yay… and Excellent Speech!

    @Dontmeantoberudebut: You seem like a black woman. In fact, I’d bet that you are. Lupita is a cutie, but what I find MOST attractive about her is her personality. It’s the entire package. If I saw her on the street and didn’t know her, I’d say she is attractive, but I probably would not rave on and on about her. However, once I saw her talk and the way she carries herself, well, yes, she could be a queen. She could easily pass for royalty. The woman has class! I don’t see many females like her in Hollywood — white, black or anything else. She seems so sweet and so decent. I love her and I would hope that other black women would not try to tear her down.

  • Well…

    @one trick pony:If not Lupita, then who else should have won? Tell us, please…

  • zabren

    well f***ing deserved!! i’m in love with jlaw, but lupita had to take, without a doubt

  • Dontmeantoberudebut

    Actually, I am a white Latina. White Latinas are the only Latinas who are beautiful and deserve to win awards such as Sofia Vergara. Not gross ugly Zoe Saldana

  • ashley


    Exactly what I was thinking. I thought it was a great speech, until she mentioned that “it doesn’t matter where you come from” bit. She made it sound like she came from a poor background, when she actually comes from a very influential family.

    Barkhad Abdi is one who can claim that “it doesn’t matter where you come from” bit though, because he really does not come from an influential background at all.

  • um

    @ashley: I didn’t take it like that. IMO, it has nothing to do with money. She still had a lot going against her. Lupita is a foreigner. Plus, she’s a black woman AND African. What she has accomplished is amazing. Many American black actors cannot get work — and they are well known!. In the movie “Non-Stop”, she played a role that was practically useless. I think Lupita was basically telling the young people not to give up on their dreams – no matter who you are, where you came from or your circumstances. Dreams are possible. She was being motivational. We still do not know if she will go on to be a really big star. The chances are actually slim because of the way Hollywood works, but at least she is shining at this moment. No one can ever take this away from her.

  • haha

    @Dontmeantoberudebut: Oh Wow! Thank you for letting us know where you and “One Trick Pony” stand. Btw, DO NOT believe you. Who mentions Jayne Kennedy except a black person? Kennedy was beautiful 30 years ago, but not anymore. In fact, she very likely might weigh over 200 pounds.

  • Catherine


    Don’t know what you mean by this. Can you explain?
