Steve McQueen‘s slavery-themed film 12 Years a Slave won the top honor at the 86th Annual Academy Awards Sunday night in Los Angeles.
Actor Will Smith, who was awarded a Razzie on Saturday for worst actor in a flop (After Earth), presented the Best Picture Oscar Award to 12 Years a Slave.
Director McQueen said: “Everyone deserves not just to survive but to live… I dedicate this award to all the people who have endured slavery and the 21 million people who still suffer slavery today.”
It was another “end of white guilt” moment for the Oscar Academy who have conditioned audiences to believe that black actors are only at their best when they portray slaves or humble domestic help.
Newcomer Lupita Nyong’o walked away with the coveted Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her gut-wrenching performance as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave Sunday night in Los Angeles.
“Yes,” exclaimed the 31-year-old actress as she hugged director Steve McQueen and her co-stars. Lupita thanked her family, her co-stars and her drama school during her emotional acceptance speech.
“It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s,” she said, referring to the suffering of African slaves in America.
Popular late night comedian Jimmy Fallon is the new host of The Tonight Show. Fallon took over the reigns of The Tonight Show following NBC’s announcement last Spring that Leno would leave The Tonight Show. Fallon has a healthy respect for Hip Hop, as evidenced by his hilarious “Evolution of Hip Hop Dance” skit with Will Smith on Monday.
Smith and Fallon performed many of the familiar dance moves that have (thankfully) come and gone, such as my personal favorite “The Carlton Dance,” named after Carlton, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
R&B singer Christina Milian was spotted smoking one of those e-cigarette Hookah thingies while lunching with actor Oskar Rivera at Clafoutis Restaurant on Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood, CA, on Wednesday. Word is Milian gets paid a pretty penny by an electronic cigarette sponsor to use their product in public.

Despite the pesky and unfounded divorce rumors, actors Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith were all smiles as they arrived at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Monday, Dec. 30, where they planned to ring in the New Year. Despite all the ups and downs, true Love always stands the test of time.
