Looking back, Lupita Nyong’o says the moments after she won her Academy Award this year were a blur. But she says in the July issue of Vogue there’s one thing she does remember: worrying she would trip on her way to the podium. “It’s not cute if you follow Jennifer Lawrence — it’s not cute if you’re the second one!” she laughed. Nyong’o, 31, has a steady path ahead, voicing a character in Jon Favreau’s take on Disney’s The Jungle Book and landing a role in Star Wars: Episode VII.

FAMILY EXPANSION

Donald Trump Jr. and his wife Vanessa don’t mess around when it comes to procreating. The couple welcomed their fifth child, a girl, on Monday; Chloe Sophia arrived at 11:56 p.m. and weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz. The Trump Organization’s executive vice president of Development and Acquisitions tweeted the happy news with the hashtag #FullHouse. They are already parents to daughter Kai, 7, and sons Donald III, 5, Tristan, 2½, and Spencer, 20 months.

LOUD FESTIVITIES

Cops were called to Selena Gomez’s home in Hidden Hills, California, Tuesday night by neighbors complaining of out-of-control noise. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the singer was warned to turn down the music. It is unclear if her on-again beau Justin Bieber was present. Earlier in the day, the two were spotted at a Hollywood recording studio and the night before that, hanging out at a club.

HE’S BACK

Dave Chappelle’s slow-motion comeback reached a big-tent crescendo when the comic performed an almost two-hour set at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall Wednesday night. Chappelle, who famously abandoned his lucrative Comedy Central show in 2005, has largely shunned the public eye since last year.

EASY GIG

Where can we sign up? Chelsea Clinton — who has a $600,000 a year contract with NBC News — hasn’t been featured since January, but the network says it expects two completed stories to air soon. The pregnant former first daughter was hired in 2011.

CHANGE OF PLANS

In other Chelsea news, Netflix has landed Handler. The outspoken comedian’s new show will begin in early 2016. It will update the format of E!’s Chelsea Lately (which ends Aug. 26), but retain the snarky focus on entertainment and cultural issues.
