12 Years A Slave
Could Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o be dating Somali-Canadian rapper K’naan? Well, they certainly do know how to get cozy!
Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o headed to the studio to film Live! with Kelly and Michael on March 3, the morning after the Oscars. But apparently the real fun happened behind the scenes! Lupita was spotted cuddling up to Keinan Abdi Warsame, better known by his stage-name K’naan, after the show. It looks like these two might be an item!
’12 Years a Slave’ dominated at the Oscars, earning coveted awards for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and more. But did writer John Ridley forget to thank director Steve McQueen in his acceptance speech — or did he leave him out on purpose?
Did anyone else notice when John Ridley, last night’s Oscar winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, seemed to remember to thank everyone involved in 12 Years a Slave, except for the film’s director, Steve McQueen? While most of us brushed it off as as an innocent mistake — we all forget things in the heat of the moment, especially a moment as huge as winning an Academy Award — there is now speculation that this was a purposeful snub! Are John and Steve feuding?
’12 Years A Slave’ won the award for Best Picture at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Jan. 16. The intense, much-talked about period drama beat out some of the most acclaimed films of the year for the honor!
You will never be able to watch ‘Gone With The Wind’ again after watching this entirely engrossing and historically accurate true story about a “free” black man who was kidnapped and enslaved in 1841.
Be prepared to be confronted with the ugly truth about slavery, in 12 Years A Slave. No matter how much Gone With The Wind portrayed the Deep South as a gracious place where plantation owners treated their slaves like beloved children, that myth has now been busted forever!
