As I said yesterday, during my Oscar Party post, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite moments from the actual awards show. This is the first year I've ever watched them all the way through, and it was quite the event!
I'm no famous critic, but here's what I thought...
Best Dressed: Gwyneth Paltrow (I preferred her without the cape) and Cameron Diaz were my favorite. I think it's adorable that they got ready for the awards together too.
There were some others I really liked too, but in the last 2 days, those were the ones that stuck out to me. I know a lot of people liked Angelina Jolie's dress, but I thought she looked pretty trashy with the leg out... then again, I still don't think I've over the Jennifer Aniston thing.
Best speech: Octavia Spencer winning the Best Supporting Actress for her role in "The Help". She was so sweet, honest and funny in her speech. I was really excited for her and I think she accepted it beautifully.
Best line: "Nothing can take the sting out of our tough economic times like watching a bunch of millionaires give themselves little golden statues." -Billy Crystal.
Honestly, I hate that it's true, but it made me laugh and that's what counts today for this critic.
Things I missed: Ryan Seacrest getting ashed. You can check that out here. All I can say, is that I'd be MAD. We didn't see it because we were watching a different channel.
Anyhow, I know this is a short little recap, but I just couldn't write about an Oscar Party and not touch a little on the Oscars themselves!
Hope you enjoyed this short little recap and have a great Wednesday!
Oh, and Happy Leap Day!
