[WEEKEND ROUNDUP] The United Colors of Lupita, Independent Spirit Awards 2014 & Chris Brown Diagnosis

United Colors of Lupita

If you’ve been under a rock and have not bore witness to actress Lupita Nyong’o slaying red carpets in every color imaginable this award season, here is your chance. Someone pulled a bunch of her recent looks into this gorgeous photo tagged “United Colors of Lupita”.

Speaking of Lupita, she won Best Supporting Female for 12 Years A Slave at the Independent Spirit Awards 2014 on Saturday. 12 Years A Slave also won Best Film. My fave film of 2013, Fruitvale Station starring Michael B. Jordan, won Best First Feature. US Weekly has the complete winners list here.

In other news, TMZ reports that court documents filed by the facility treating Chris Brown revealed that he has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. According to a letter from the facility, “Mr. Brown became aggressive and acted out physically due to his untreated mental health disorder, severe sleep deprivation, inappropriate self-medicating and untreated PTSD.” The letter also indicates that Chris has learned various relaxation exercises and he’s tested negative for drugs, including weed, during his stay.

Chris has been ordered back to the rehab facility for 2 more months. Hopefully this diagnosis and followup treatment will help him to continue making progress.
