If you don’t know the name Ruth Negga, you will now! The actress of Irish and Ethiopian descent is as breathtakingly beautiful as she is talented, and audiences will soon be falling in love with her powerful performance in the new biopic Loving.

The film, directed by Jeff Nichols, tells the true story of Mildred (played by Negga) and Richard Loving (played by Joel Edgerton), a Virginia couple whose interracial marriage in 1958 led to a landmark Supreme Court case and the abolition of anti-marriage laws based on race.

HipHollywood sat down with Negga, who is currently starring on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Edgerton, to talk about their performances that are already generating Oscar buzz. “I knew this film was special,” said Edgerton, who had previously worked with Nichols on the film Midnight Special. “I was like unless someone forget to turn on the camera, there’s no way people won’t fall in love with this film.”

Negga, who herself is of mixed race, also told us she believes the film is already gaining buzz because its subject message is still so relevant, with many people dealing with racial and marriage inequality in this country today.

Loving hits theaters November 4th.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
