Obligatory Oscar post starts now:
If you thought I wasn’t going to bring up Leo finally winning a gold statue, you’d be horribly wrong and I don’t know if we could ever be friends. If you’re my friend on Facebook you probably already know that when Julianne Moore said his name, a scream was let out of my throat and it took me almost a hot minute to realize it really did come out of me. I loved Kate Winslet’s reaction, loved his acceptance speech; the only way it could have been better would be if he lifted his statue in the air and said “I made it count!” (I’m the king of the world would have been a little too obvious.)
Another favorite of mine from last night was Jacob Tremblay. That kid is totes adorbs. From the picture of him and his parents driving to the ceremony (in their own car!) to him telling Chris Rock that he loved him in Madagascar, I couldn’t deal with his cuteness.
I was a little nervous with Chris Rock being the host, how #OscarsSoWhite would be handled. Frankly, I think he did an excellent job with his opener. I found him to be funny, blunt and real. I didn’t understand what the point of having Stacey Dash there was, but otherwise, I thought he did a very good job. As far as keeping the show moving, well, we can’t all be perfect.
I’m not going to lie, as much as I liked Lady Gaga’s performance this year, I liked last year’s better. That being said, I think she was absolutely, 100% robbed when she didn’t win last night. Even if for no other reason than her song meant something. It is bringing awareness to a very, very serious issue going on in colleges across the country, if not the world. Gaga is a winner in my book.
For the most part, I think the fashion last night was on it’s A game. I’m going to end this post with some of my favorite looks of the night.
I wasn’t a fan of the Hefty chic look Kate’s got going on, but these two.. ugh.
Who made your best-dressed list? What were you favorite Oscar moments?
