PARK CITY, Utah -- In a deal for about $2 million, the Weinstein Co. has acquired rights to the drama “Fruitvale,” shown at the Sundance Film Festival, according to a person close to the film who was not authorized to speak on the record. The deal comes as Relativity Media bought Joseph Gordon-Levitt's sexual obsession story “Don Jon's Addiction” for about $4 million. “Fruitvale” is based on the 2009 shooting of 22-year-old African American father Oscar Grant by a BART police officer in Oakland, an event that sparked outrage among community activists.

Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore just listed Tina Fey, clad in a custom blue Narcisco Rodriguez gown, as one of the Emmys' best dressed Sunday night, and her makeup fell right in line with her look. Fey's makeup artist Gita Bass evened out her skin tone using Armani Luminous Silk foundation, and then added a warm glow with Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzing makeup base, which she swept onto Fey's cheekbones, forehead and temples. For a pop of color on the cheeks, Bass added Chanel Cream blush in Revelation 63. To create a soft smoky eye, Bass lined Fey's top and bottom lash lines with MAC Cosmetics eyeliner in Teddy (a bronze shade with gold flecks)

Dior's new designer Raf Simons has dressed a constellation of stars in recent months, including two of the highest profile guests at tonight's awards. Both ladies wore red, Jennifer Lawrence in a strapless, 1950s-ish style dress with a molded bustier that sent the Twitterverse into overdrive chattering about her assets, and Marion Cotillard in a more demure red column with draped detail, which was whipped up by Simons especially for her. Any pizazz that Lawrence might have had was deflated as soon as she opened her mouth.

Cyber Monday 2013 broke records. It was the biggest online spending day ever. Cyber Monday left Black Friday in the dust. Take that, lackluster shopping weekend! Retailers' performance, indeed, was blah overall during the four-day holiday shopping period, Tiffany Hsu reports. In-store sales were up just 1% over last year. Electronics retailers saw a 6.5% decline. But Cyber Monday was a sunny spot amid the meh. Digital data firm ComScore reported an 18% improvement over 2012 in shopping by desktop/mobile device on Monday for a total of $1.74 billion in sales.

Ben Affleck may have been snubbed for directing it, but "Argo" certainly wasn't slighted at the Academy Awards, winning best picture in Sunday night's ceremony. In beating Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" for the top Oscar honor in the 85th annual ceremony, "Argo" became the first movie since 1989's "Driving Miss Daisy" to collect the best picture statuette without its director being nominated for making it. Although "Argo's" win was not a surprise, the introduction of the best picture by First Lady Michelle Obama was unexpected.
