The Oscars

1. First of all, the biggest tragedy of all...I taped the wrong red carpet show. I taped the one on that was on the same channel as the show. SO, no E! red carpet. No Guiliana. I was awful.
2. Of all the movies represented in the nominations, I only had seen Black Swan, Winter's Bone, The Social Network, and Country Strong (it was in there for best song, don't hate).
3. Best dressed...I can't decide a winner. It's between Gwyneth Paltrow (the photos don't do it justice) and Cate Blanchette. Also up there are Michele Williams, Mila Kunis, and Scarlett Johansson (these photos really don't capture what they looked like on TV)
4. Everyone says how bad James Franco was, but at least he wasn't cheesy and over-the-top like his partner Anne Hathaway. I was rooting for him, maybe because for some reason, he reminds me of my nephew Rafferty?
5. Worst dressed, for me, was Amy Adams. The hair, the dress, the was hard to look at. I also did not like Nicole Kidman or Natalie Portman (NP was too matchy-matchy again, which was part of her problem at the Golden Globes)
6. At every awards show, there is a dress that I immediately love, then see it again and then hate it. Then I love it. Then I hate it. This continues...this dress at the Oscars was worn by Melissa Leo
7. I love Annette Benning. She is just radiant. And could her and Warren Beatty be any cuter?
8. My favorite quote of the night was James Franco's grandma saying, "I just saw Marky Mark!"
9. I thought the whole opening skit (Inception/Alec Baldwin's dream/movie sequence was funny.
10. I was sad that I didn't love any of Anne Hathaway's dresses (and there were plenty to choose from). Maybe Rachel Zoe's pregnancy brain is a little off.
11. Speaking of Anne, a few too many of her hairstyles looked straight out of "Princess Diaries."
12. Marissa Tomei looks so young! That woman is timeless. I thought she was Ashley Green the whole time they were interviewing her on the red carpet.
13. I am kind of obsessed with the fact that Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips are best friends. I love them. If only I had been cast as Joey Potter, I would not have married Tom Cruise and we would all three be best friends.
14. Florence Welch (from Florence + The Machine) was magic as always, but her dress was a little too reminiscent of Rachel Berry's during the Rachel Berry House Party.
15. I need to see King's Speech and The Fighter
16. I think next year I'll host an Oscars party.


  1. Cate Blanchette ALL THE WAY. And yes please to an Oscar party.

  2. Okay, first of all, I love and adore Anne Hathaway. (She and Ginnifer Goodwin are my very favorites.) I loved her happy cheesiness, and James could have showed some appreciation. I thought she did a great job, and I was really happy for her. But not happy for her being stuck with him. I normally do love him, so I'll give him another chance. I do want to see 127 hours because I enjoyed that guy's book.

    I didn't really love any of her dresses, though. I did think she looked really good in the (was it one of the last? kind of maroon red? not my favorite dress, but I just thought she looked pretty). I liked her hair - except for the braid bun thing.

    I do sort of like Cate's dress, but I did not like the sleeves. If the sleeves weren't like that, I would have liked the print. I WOULD have liked Scarlett's dress a lot if it didn't go straight down, if it would have flared out from the waist, flowier. But I'm definitely more into flowy than slinky.

    Oh! I did like Florence Welch's dress a lot, but I have no idea who she is.

    NP was okay for me - thought it looked pretty on her, but I do know what you mean.

    I also love that M and B are best friends. You TOTALLY could have been cast as Joey Potter. Obviously.

  3. Oh, and 4 is funny. But R isn't as cool as he might make you think he is.
