Lupita Nyong’o in custom Armani at the Globes: gorgeous & flirty?

76th Annual Golden Globe Awards - 2019 Telecast

It’s sad that Black Panther didn’t win any Golden Globes. It feels like the awards shows have just decided that Black Panther is going to be nominated for all of the “Best Picture” awards, but it won’t actually win anything. We’re past the moment when a film as significant as Black Panther can just be nominated and everyone’s happy with that though. It’s especially galling that on the same night Black Panther was ignored, the HFPA gave a bunch of Golden Globes to that white savior bulls–t Green Book.

The main people of Black Panther came out for the Globes: Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, and writer/director Ryan Coogler. I don’t think Chadwick walked the carpet, but Lupita, MBJ, Danai and Ryan all walked and posed together. Lupita wore an absolutely stunning custom Calvin Klein gown which shimmered whenever she moved. Danai wore a Rodarte gown which is basically the fire emoji come to life. Also: Lupita and MBJ seem very touchy-feely with each other. I have to ask again: are they just flirty friends, or is there something there?

    While I understand that Black Panther’s cultural significance was immense, the movie itself was mediocre IMO. Not that that stopped other movies from getting awards.

    Lupita and Danai both look amazing.

      True…it does NOT age well…like many of the other MCU movies…I can watch “Winter Soldier” or “Civil War”…heck, I can watch the Thor movies and still be satisfied…not this one…I know…I tried…

      • Rdoug says:

        I Love Black Panther, but it was nominated mostly for optics, a hey look we’re not so white. It is honestly my favorite MCU movie, and I know I’ll watch over and over again, especially with the rest of my family, who hate literally every superhero movie but this one. Civil war and all the other Capitain America movies kinda loose me because the comic book versions of those stories are much better imo, Civil War would have been great if Marvel had the rights to the X-Men.

      “movie itself was mediocre IMO. Not that that stopped other movies from getting awards.”

      Thank you for adding that last bit because come ON. It doesn’t get much more mediocre than Green “you’re welcome Black people” Book, and Bohemian “please forget it was directed by Bryan Singer and we all hired and/or agreed to work with him despite the open secret about his abuses” Rhapsody. Yuck.

      I think I would have loved Lupita’s dress but she was photographed a LOT with Danai…and DAMN Danai slayed! Very distracting! 😁

      • Tryingtolearn says:

        Agreed. “Funny” how the awards always bypass movies of cultural significance to black Americans, not to any with even just a passing significance to white Americans. Still bs that The Color Purple got only one award, and Get Out was absolutely robbed at every awards show – maybe not best picture (though looking at the other nominees…), but Daniel Kaluuya deserved Best Actor so much.
        I still haven’t seen BR, but I don’t want to. Hannah Gadsby said it more articulately, but F supporting evil men. Cannot stomach Bryan Singer, and I’m sad that this just means he’ll probably never go down until he’s long dead.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I agree that Black Panther was a good movie, not great IMHO. Still, it’s in my top 5 MCU movies, and no-one can understate how important it was overall – black cast, director, standalone superhero movie. It’s great for those reasons alone.

      As for the looks, Danai defnitely killed it, though I actually prefer the color of Lupita’s dress. (Just a general preference, I like blues more than reds.)

    Life goals complete: I’ve got my 3 y/o now saying Wakanda forever!! She made me my mom cry when she did it for her the first time. It just means so much and shows so much beautiful dark skin.

  3. Huh says:

    I only made it half way though the movie. Was a bit slow.

  4. ElleBee says:

    I need for Chadwick to get a new stylist. This get up (especially the glitter shoes) were atrocious.

    Also is it me or does in seems like the closeness between Chad and the rest of the cast has soured a bit?

  5. BlueSky says:

    Armani or Calvin Klein? It says she’s wearing. Armani in the headline.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    I thought the whole cast looked gorgeous and they were among the few to wear actual bold, bright colors on gowns that looked they actually were cut well and fit them.

    It was like everyone else went to their stylists and said “I want you to find me a gown that is cut weird and looks like it is a size too big, and then get it in black, grey, taupe or some other washed out color that looks like it was sitting in direct sunlight for too long and almost completely faded so it makes me look pale and sickly, and doesn’t flatter me at all”.

    I hate it when Hollywood goes through their “earth tones” phases. They almost always look horrible on everyone wearing them.

    • Trashaddict says:

      This. Damn. Best looking group photo I’ve ever seen. Fantastic dresses, blew the rest of them away.

  7. Bros says:

    Usually think Lupita does very well fashionwise, but that dress is not doing her any favors. The bodice is too narrow making it look imbalanced and her hair doesn’t look great and is kind of a mirror of that ugly bodice.

    • Pandy says:

      Agree. Lupitas dress is just okay but her hair is doing her as many favours as jamie Lee Curtis. Danai should wear that dress everyday. It’s GORGEOUS.

  8. Becks1 says:

    Lupita and Danai were my two favorites of the evening. Bold colors, fun designs, dresses fit them perfectly, and I feel like they discussed what they were wearing because the dresses actually work together – despite being two bright colors, they don’t compete with each other really. Both looked amazing.

  9. incognito08 says:

    I respectfully disagree with those who believe that Black Panther was mediocre and will not age well. Aside from the cultural significance, I felt that the movie had an awesome storyline, great acting, funny moments, awesome costumes, and awesome side-effects. My 83-year-old father-in-law is usually a hard sell when it comes to movies derived from comic books; however, he was riveted by BP’s story and asked the hubs and myself to take him to see the movie again. The final scene with Michael B. Jordan tugged at my emotions too. IMHO, Black Panther > Any Movie in the MC Franchise.

    • BlueSky says:

      I agree. I loved the movie. The villain was much better in this one than the others. His character was fleshed out and I loved the backstory. I laughed at how it won’t age well when it’s hasnt even been a year.

  10. Aren says:

    Danai was perfection. I didn’t like Lupita’s dress because it looked very 70’s Disco, but she’s still flawless.

  11. Lucy2 says:

    Both women look absolutely gorgeous.

    I’m not really a marvel fan, and I’m so behind on all the other movies that I just gave up, but I thought BP was really enjoyable and well done, one of the best of the superhero/comic book genre.
    But those rarely win big awards, so I’m not surprised.

  12. BANANIE says:

    I liked this dress on Lupita! I’m more used to seeing her in plunging necklines a la Saiorse Ronan this time around. I think those always look amazing on her, but it was nice to see she still rocks it even with a change of pace.

  13. Leslie says:

    Honestly, if Avatar can be nominated for Best Picture, then so can Black Panther. Black Panther > Avatar. Having said that, I don’t think Black Panther should win Best Picture, just like I didn’t think Avatar should win (and I’m very glad it didn’t). There are up to 10 possible spots for Best Picture, the entire point of upping the amount of Best Picture nominees was so that movies like Black Panther could be nominated, so let it be nominated.

    I just hope Green Book and Bohemian whatever don’t win. I’d rather see Black Panther win over either of those.

    kenyan here and even i didn’t even get past the first fifteen minutes tbh….

    I loved Black Panther and Wonder Woman, but prefer the latter. Then again, I’m a white woman and really into Greek mythology.
