Oscars 2013

Monday, February 25, 2013

It's been many months since my last post. I've been extremely busy with a big project and blogging has escaped me. The only thing that could possibly pull me back is....the Oscars! I wait all year for this event and I couldn't miss stating all of my opinions about it. First of all, let's talk about the red carpet:

Kristin Chenoweth. Gag. I felt like I spent the entire two hours leading up to the Oscars listening to her ramble on about how small she is. We get it, you're 4'11. You said that. AND you took your shoes of twice. And you dissed Adele (who has way more talent than you do) by telling her how petite you are and taking off your shoes. I thought I was hallucinating when she asked Hugh Jackman, "what do you think weighs more, me or an Oscar?"

Moving on.

Unlike the past years, I'm only going to talk about two dresses this year: best dressed and worst dressed. My pick for best? Amy Adams. Hands down. She looked fabulous!

That dress is to die for! I wish I could just wear it around my apartment while I'm vacuuming. I love her.

And now for the worst. What do you get when you combing 90's teen movie fashion with Tiffany's? Anne Hathaway:

I'll say, I thought her hair looked lovely, but this dress is all wrong. The light pink...the satin...the high neck WITH the necklace- ahh! She looks like she fell out of "She's All That" -I mean where are the platform sandals?

That being said, she totally deserved the Oscar, her performance in Les Mis was amazing.

Onto the host: Seth Macfarlene. Hilarious! I laughed the entire time. LOVED the boob song. And the way he introduced Meryl was so funny, I couldn't stop laughing. I know he's been getting some bad press.....but they did predict that, no?

Hands down, this has to be one of the best awards shows I've ever seen. I'm a sucker for musical theater and loved the throwback to Chicago (though I did think it was totally random). Who didn't love/find really inappropriate the Jaws music playing over top of the acceptance speeches?

Awesome moment: Jennifer Lawrence falling. She was so sweet and funny and I loved her brief speech. She's quickly becoming a new favorite of mine.

Weird moment: Michelle Obama? What are you doing there? What are you trying to say? ....no really....why are you here?

I didn't stay up to see Chenoweth's performance....I had had enough of her. Other than a few minor things (Jack Nicholson in sunglasses the entire night...again!) I thought this had to be one of the best Oscar shows ever. Except for maybe when Ellen hosted.
