Did you watch the Oscar’s last night? I NEVER, and I mean NEVER, miss it. One year I was at Disney World with the family and I went back to the hotel to watch the Oscar’s – I live for this night.
My family purchased a fake Oscar in 1987. We have been competing for that Oscar every year since then. I keep the official ballot and everyone calls in their picks to me. I keep track of everyone’s scores for the night. Last night was Year #26 and now includes my children and my nieces and nephews. I dreamed about watching the Oscars with my children one day and I cherish this night with them. Whoever has the most correct picks for each category wins the Oscar for the year!! Last year we had a tie between my brother and sister so they each got the Oscar for 6 months. Guess who the big winner was last night – in a landslide I might add …. ME!! Put the Oscar in the mail – this is my year!!
I plop my butt down on the couch with my clipboard, red pen, ballot and spreadsheet at 4:00 p.m. for the red carpet on the E Channel. I do not move until after midnight. Food is ordered and delivered (I don’t even go to the door – this is the Hubs job). He then delivers it to the couch. I am doing very important pre-show fashion research and cannot be interrupted. Ha! Since I am the big winner this year, I feel like I must give you a few of my highlights and lowlights from the evening. These opinions are strictly my own – so don’t freak out if you don’t agree. It is all in fun.
1. The old Hollywood Glamour on the red carpet:
I love Jennifer Lawrence. She is so natural and pretty. She looks like a princess in this dress and I think it is big and perfect for a big and perfect night!
Really? Could anyone else pull off this hair and this dress? She is a goddess! Absolutely stunning!
I adore this color on Reese ( I consider myself on a first name basis with all the stars so just go with my fantasy). The color is so perfect with her coloring and her eyes. Very classic lines.
My favorite look and dress of the night. I love the way the lines accentuate her smoking body, the color is spectacular with her skin and don’t even get me started with the hair! True Love!!
I think Adele is just the most amazing girl! She is just fearless and totally comfortable in her own skin. Love that. I think her old Hollywood glamour make-up is perfection!!
2. Beards and their Beautiful Babes:
One word …. YUMMY!
3. Seth MacFarlane – the Host with the Most ?:
Yes, some of his jokes got some groans and could have been seen as inappropriate, but for the most part, I enjoyed Seth. He looks like Peter Brady, has a voice like an angel (who knew?) and seemed calm and natural. Not too shabby.
1. Bad Bad Bad Hair:
Don’t you think you could untangle that rat’s nest for one night Helena? Don’t even get me started on the dress. Yikes.
“Hi – I’m Kristin Stewart and I just got up from a nap and decided to hop on down to the Oscars on my crutches. This is the only time this year I have been seen with a smile on my face, but that is because my publicist is screaming in my ear to change my image. My dress doesn’t fit me right and my hair needs a good brushing. How are you?”
Why Melissa? You are my favorite Hollywood funny lady. Why try to make us all laugh with that terrible beehive/blow-back hair style? I was so disappointed – but I still love ya!
2. Hugh Jackman’s Wife’s Pantsuit:
Why would anyone think it is okay to wear a pantsuit on the red carpet?? I love Hugh but his wife is plenty “old enough” to realize that she should have worn a gown.
3. Brandi Glanville – Enough Said!
Who let this crazy bitch on the red carpet half-dressed? Why would a “Housewife” need to be on the red carpet at the Oscars? There are no words …
So those are my highlights and lowlights for Oscar Night. What were your favorites and what made your mouth drop open?
Hope your life is more gold Oscar heaven than MTV Award havoc!
