a day late and a dollar short…

…but, hey, cut me some slack. I’ve been fighting off a cold for the past 3 days. Is it just me or is everyone sick? Anyway, without further ado, my Oscar Recap!

Best Dressed of the night:

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt looked stunning, as usual. Angelina was wore black, as usual. But, she really can do no wrong and, despite their red carpet snubbery, they make a great pair.

Meanwhile, Brad’s ex Jennifer Aniston looked gorgeous in this white and silver slinky dress. She definitely made a statement: she’s fine without Brad! Though, I do wish she did something a bit more with her hair. This is the Oscars after all! Extra Bonus: Aniston brought along beau John Mayer as her arm candy. I’m really starting to like the two of them together…

Speaking of loving the dress but not the hair, you know that Kate Winslet can do no wrong in my book. But, the hair was hideous. It made her look much older than she really is. And what happened to color, in general? Kate’s dress from the SAG Awards was amazing and I wish she’d chosen something vibrant like that. Enough with the blacks, whites and greys ladies! Regardless, Kate looked beautiful.

Finally! Some color! Natalie Portman may not have had an Oscar award-winning movie this year, but she definitely rocked the red carpet.

Penelope Cruz kept it classic, almost Audrey Hepburn-esque, with this beautiful gown. I loved her whole look. And more importantly, I loved her speech when she won Best Supporting Actress. One of my favorite moments 🙂

Funniest Moment of the night:

Ben Stiller, a la Joaquin Pheonix on Letterman, presenting with Natalie Portman. Absolutely hilarious! Maybe it will convince Joaquin that he needs to get his act together…

Most Touching Moment of the night:

Heath Ledger’s win for Best Supporting Actor and his family’s acceptance speech on behalf of the late actor.

Most Surprising Moment:

Hugh Jackman as host. I have to say, I’ve never been a huge fan of Hugh, mostly because I’m not into the whole Wolverine, action-flick type of movies. But, he knocked me on my ass with his singing, dancing and, most of all, his charm. I loved it!

So, what do you guys think of the show? The critics were saying they needed a miracle to gain back the viewership it lost last year. Was the show a success?

  1. Hey- I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks back and enjoy your take on the hollywood gossip. Try as I may, I can’t help buy love the rich and famous.

    Um, I LOVED this year’s Oscars. I know the telecast got some bad reviews, but I thought they did a fantastic job. And, truly, go Hugh!! I thought he was fantastic. Best Dressed? I agree with you- Angelina hands down. And interesting to me: Angie in black, Jen in white…. good vs. evil anyone?? If only that evil one wasn’t so damn beautiful…

  2. @courtney – welcome and thanks for checking out the blog 🙂 glad to hear you like it!
