The first person I saw when I tuned in to the red carpet coverage was Octavia Spencer and she looked lovely. I love seeing the dresses and good and bad fashion choices. Sitting on my couch with popcorn and a cup of tea I was settled in for the long haul.
Then I saw Jonah Hill, with his Mom. I love it when people bring their Mom as their date. Especially when Mom looks totally star struck.
They let Sacha Baron Cohen come as The Dictator! (or did he just show up) there was some controversy last week when he said he wanted to do the red carpet in character and then change for the ceremony. Come on Oscars have a sense of humour and let him and apparently they did.
Rooney Mara is beautiful but I find her dull and I didn’t like her dress. Jessica Chastain on the other hand seems delightful and her black and gold dress was beautiful (McQueen, no wonder I like it).
Prince Albert of Monaco and Prisoner Bride Charlene were there! OMG RUN Charlene RUN Charlene does look beautiful but is apparently not allowed to speak. Also kept cutting her out of the camera shot, was that because she’s still crying from the wedding?
Hate the BIG bow on Emma Stones dress. Was anybody else meh about The Help?
Michelle Williams is so pretty, loved the Louis Vuitton dress on her.
Colin Firth looks charming as always but I hate what Livia his wife is wearing. I don’t even care who she’s wearing, other than the dress she looks beautiful as always.
Christopher Plummer I LOVE he would make the list for my dream dinner party. He’s so charming, funny and bet he would have incredible stories to tell over after dinner drinks. (Love the velvet tux) AND Gary Oldman, I totally want Gary Oldman at that dinner party as well.
JLo where is Casper? Not slumming it at the Oscars this time?
Okay I could go on but that would probably be more for my amusement than yours so I’ll wait for the ceremony.
Love Billy’s opening was really good. Billy does it so well, there is a reason it’s his ninth time hosting and so much better than the mess that was James Franco and Anne Hathaway last year. Although I would put more of the blame on Franco who didn’t seem to even try to be entertaining….. but he went to art school.
(Okay as a side note I keep laughing my ass off at the 21 Jump Street trailers. I tried to resist and thought I would NEVER want to see it but I think I do.)
JLo and Cameron presenting would love to hear what they chatted about before presenting, I suspect nothing. Cameron was recently photographed dry humping PDiddy (NO CAMERON NO) and well JLo used to date him. Remember the dress? Yeah she was dating him when she wore the green Versace. They didn’t look comfortable together. (love it)
Okay I’ll kinda let you know now that the only categories I really care about are the acting and best film.
Christian Bale appears to have no sense of humour.
Best supporting actress OCTAVIA SPENCER. So happy and thrilled. I love an honest reaction and that was great tears and trying to remember what to say and who to thank. Wouldn’t have been my pick but I’m okay with it.
Cirque du Soleil was amazing, always amazing. Yay Canada!
RDJ and Gwyneth, okay I laughed. Also Emma Stone and Ben Stiller, totally laughed at them mocking Anne Hathaway and James Franco from last year.
Yay Christopher Plummer! I really liked Beginners. So happy he won, no surprise but still happy for him!
Jean Dujardin wins best actor. Not a surprise.
Colin Firth to Meryl “We were in Greece. I was gay and we were happy.” might be my favourite of the night.
Meryl Streep! Woo Hoo! I’m happy for Meryl, I really like her. Great speech she’s so lovely and gracious.
The Artist wins best picture! Woo Hoo! Happy about that.
How did you feel about the Oscars?
