She nabbed the Best Supporting Actress Oscar Sunday for 12 Years a Slave – which also earned the night's biggest prize – but Lupita Nyong'o also deserves some unofficial honors: Most Charming New Star.

Forget the fans, her fellow stars, and the fashion police, both official and otherwise. For Charlize Theron, it was the opinion of just one Oscar-watcher that mattered: Her 2-year-old son, Jackson.

There is a story that Marlon Brando, when agreeing to play Jor-El in the 1978 movie Superman, suggested that he simply supply the voice, while Jor-El on camera would be played by a suitcase or a bagel.
I've sometimes thought this would be a wonderful solution to the annual challenge of finding someone to host the Oscars. Just a bagel and a voice, year after year. It would instill a degree of ritual and mystery while also saving on production and styling costs. It would be like Her, only it would be a carbohydrate.
However, for now, the Academy needs to keep Ellen DeGeneres on the short list of stars who really know how to manage this glamorous beast.

As the stars arrived on the Oscars red carpet, they were met with photographers, reporters and lots of eager fans. How they greeted the throngs outside Hollywood's Dolby Theater was an art form in itself.

Liza Minnelli isn't the only Oscar attendee bringing a bolt of blue to the red carpet. Lupita Nyong'o arrived at the Academy Awards wearing a Grecian baby blue gown. The color is the latest shade to be added to the 12 Years a Slave actress's array of rainbow awards season gowns.

Sorry Lupita Nyong'o, Jared Leto has moved on to another Oscar nominee.
