Lulu Wang’s The Farewell won Best Feature at the Spirit Awards

We’re wrapping up Spirit Awards coverage. It’s like the amazing appetizer before the overcooked bland prime rib dinner of the Oscars. You know you should have stopped after the first course but you couldn’t help yourself. Lulu Wang was on stage twice last night, once to accept best supporting female for actress Zhao Shuzen, who was stuck in China due to the coronavirus, and another time to accept Best Picture for The Farewell! When Lulu was accepting for Zhao, she explained that Zhao almost didn’t read the script because she thought it wasn’t dramatic enough and because the pay wasn’t as good as the roles she gets in China, it was cute. In her acceptance speech for The Farewell, Lulu said that there was a lot of talk about encouraging women to be in film, but that “what women need is just the job. Just give them the freaking job. Give them the money.” Amen.

Lulu had on a fabulous green Prabal Gurung dress with a subtly asymmetric bust and a really cool split bell skirt.

Here’s Marisa Tomei looking like a snack in a white Peter Petrov suit with a pastel yellow blouse. My only complaint is the teardrop opening at the front of the jacket. It looks like it’s hanging oddly because of that, but it’s surely a design feature and I’ve seen it before I think I just like jackets that lie flat.

Zazie Beetz looked retro in this very 80s white and cherry print Rodarte with a giant ruffle arm. She’s so happy looking I can’t nitpick this crazy dress. Also check out how cute she is with her boyfriend, David Rysdahl. He’s an actor and writer and they’ve been together since 2015.



America Ferrera was in a very pink Self Portrait gown with a giant bow and a brighter pink jacket over it. America is pregnant, but does she get a pass for this? I say no.

    I would wear the crap out of that pink blazer… but not with that dress.

  2. EM says:

    I’m confused with all of the dresses and blazers (America, J. King). The combinations just do not work IMO – with their dresses a wrap or something else would’ve fit better. Ruins the entire look for me.

      It’s weird that there are so many odd blazers… Maybe it was colder than expected and last minute additions to the looks?

    Aw, Zazie is so adorable I’ll forgive her that…..gigantic arm thing. America looks like she threw a blazer over her nightgown. I might have chosen a different blouse if I were Marisa, it washes her out.

    Congratulations Zhao Shuzen, well deserved, should’ve been on the Oscar list.

  5. tempest prognosticator says:

    Marissa is gorgeous. The suit is cool, but the blouse is off.

  6. Bella says:

    I love Marissa outfit!! I also love the color of America’s outfit but not the outfit itself.
