  • LUPITA NYONG'O'S OSCAR DRESS RETURNED AND RUMORED TO BE FAKE

    Lupita Nyong'o's stolen Oscar dress was returned to her because the thief allegedly found out it was worthless. The unidentified culprit told

    TMZ that he stole the Calvin Klein gown, reported to be worth between $150,000 to $10 million, but returned it by leaving it in a garment bag inside of a garbage bag in the hotel bathroom after getting it appraised. The thief claims he got away with the crime by dropping the dress from the balcony of the hotel room and having his friend pick it up.

    • The thief removed two of the 6,000 pearls from the dress which is how they found out it was a fake. A source close to CK designer Francisco Costa told the website, "Did anyone ever say they were real from Calvin Klein? I always assumed everyone knew they were fake, but I guess not. Do they really make dresses out of real jewels since Cleopatra died?"
    • Lupita told Women's Wear Daily, "I'm happy that it has been potentially recovered. It's a timeless and priceless piece of art."
    • A rep for the clothing brand said in a statement, "All of us at Calvin Klein are thrilled to know that the dress has potentially been located. This was an amazing collaboration between the brand and Lupita and the dress looked truly exquisite on her. Once it's returned to us, we will be able to have the dress restored and archived, as it now represents an important moment for the brand."

  • WEEKEND MOVIE WRAP-UP

    After two weeks on top, moviegoers appear to have moved on from Fifty Shades of Grey. Will Smith's Focus debuted in first place at the weekend box office after taking in $19.1 million. By comparison, the film took in a bit less than his 2006 drama, The Pursuit of Happyness, but more than 2008's Seven Pounds.

    • Fifty Shades fell down into fourth place while Kingsman: The Secret Service and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water held onto their momentum in second and third.
    • The week's other new release, The Lazarus Effect, debuted in fifth place.
    • Julianne Moore's Oscar win last week helped Still Alice break into the top 10. It landed in ninth place with $2.69 million -- nearly two months after its initial release.
    • Jupiter Ascending, The Imitation Game, and Paddington all fell out of the top 10.

  • 'SNL' VIEWERS OUTRAGED BY ISIS SKIT

    Dakota Johnson's debut as host of Saturday Night Live over the weekend has sparked a bit of controversy. Viewers of the show have expressed outrage over a sketch where Dakota goes off to join the terrorist group ISIS.

    The skit was a parody of the Toyota commercial showing a father dropping his daughter to enter the army. The joke was that instead of the army, Dakota's character is joining ISIS. It also included cast member Kyle Mooney saying the line, "Death to America." The bit ends with the slogan, "ISIS: We'll take it from here, Dad."

    VIEWERS REACT:

    #DakotaJohnson has convinced me that she's nothing but gutter trash, especially after the #ISIS #SNL skit. #Disgusted http://t.co/I9VHaKG4gL

    Not funny-Not cute. I've watched SNL since the 70s and they missed the mark with an ISIS skit. Who thinks this crap up? #SNL #DakotaJohnson
