New Couple Alert! Sparks Fly Between Award Nominees


It looks like Hollywood’s got a brand new power couple, with rumours swirling that a romance has struck up between two nominees on the Oscars circuit.

According to the New York Post, Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o have been getting to know each other during award season and spent most of the Golden Globes ceremony looking very cosy indeed. Thirty-year-old Nyong’o is nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her appearance in 12 Years a Slave at the upcoming Oscars, while Leto is up for the Best Supporting Actor gong for Dallas Buyers Club.

Nyong’o shot to fame following her role in the Steve McQueen film and was seen sitting beside Anna Wintour on the FROW at New York Fashion Week on Thursday.
