And the E! Live on the Red Carpet special started with Best Actress nominee, Jennifer Lawrence. She killed it! I hope she does some more movies soon! Because there's a good chance I'm not going to watch Winter's Bone.. too rugged. And I don't like squirrel soup.
Michelle Williams - bringing her BFF Busy as her date. SO AWESOME. Michelle looked flawless in Chanel. One of my favs. The guys didn't understand her fashion though.. but they are meatballs when it comes to couture.
Tough Guy: What movie was Halle in this year? Me: Ohh, it was Custody Battle. (regardless, this woman has not aged one second) And is probably the only woman there who could pull off such a fantastical dress (Mandy tried.. and failed)
Her dress was a little too Julia Roberts circa 2007 in Valentino. But I loved the high ponytail. She looked youthful and fresh and happy - Jim Toth.. keep doing what you're doing! Granted I would have used that for a Golden Globes look.. but I have no talent so don't have to worry about organizing my red carpet looks for future awards shows
ScarJo's dress photographed a lot prettier than it looked on the Red Carpet. So its grown on me. Plus, I love her hair and makeup.
Camila Alves. Va va voom!! Stunning and flawless. I wish I could show her makeup to an artist and ask them to recreate that for me. Um, yeah you know you don't look like her one bit, right? they'd say. Le sigh.
Overall? Where was the glamour???? Everyone seemed so casual. Its the Oscars, people!!
Anne Hathaway and James Franco as hosts. I though it'd be a lot smoother. I'm not sure if Anne was nervous or what, but she was totally awkward throughout the entire night. James was James.. but it just wasn't Oscar-worthy in my eyes. I almost missed Billy Crystal when he came out to talk (about what? still don't know). My biggest pet peeve of the entire broadcast? Hathaway doing the Real Housewives of OC Vicki's 'WOOT WOOTS!' after every single announcement. Completely inappropriate (gee, Julie, when did you become such an old fart???) I know I know.
Rachel Zoe did an excellent job though- I thought Anne looked stunning in her wardrobe changes, even the lacey number at the end.
The big winners of the night? No surprises there. Speeches were okay. Melissa Leo sounded like a train wreck up there though. I swear like a sailor myself, but the F bomb at the Oscars? Rubbish. Colin Firth, I think all women hold him dear to their heart after Bridget Jones Diary! (i do)
Welp, folks.. there you have it. Oscars 2011. For some snarkier shenanigans, tweets are always the way to go. With blogging, you have a lot more time to think about it and edit it :)
