First, I wish to thank everyone who tried to help me regarding my IPad. It is still a work in progress with my new IPad so I am using the good ole Lap Top for now:) I really mean Thank you too!
So, of course, the Oscars were on Sunday night and I watched every bit of it because nothing says film awards better than saying thank you for receiving a golden statue. Thankfully, I only heard one nut say Thank you to God for the Golden Award so that was a relief.
Chris Rock nailed it! He was perfect (except for the blechhh Girl Guide Cookie thing half way through- that was totally stupid). I also loved how there was a nice tribute, to whom you thought would be Will Smith but it turned out to be Jack Black. I loved that considering how stupid Will Smith's wifee was with the Oscars so white crap. It has been so white for 88 years!
I will not discuss who won and all that jazz but I made my own list regarding the awards so here we go....
1. BEST DRESSED
Yeah I am going to fashion because I am a girl and I love this crap even though there are starving babies and all that other blah blah going on, I still love this. They are both classic in look, both wearing colours I love and both have necklaces on! I wish more would wear a necklace especially when everything is so dull. It is glittery too. Now for the men....
Michael Fassbender looks great-classic. I have to admit, I love Bryan Cranston's tux, as well, even though it was quite shiny. Both are pretty spiffy to me.
This has bad bridesmaid dress written all over it. I just don't have the words. Oh wait, Yes I do-Horrible!
I like Rooney Mara but, but,...No! She looks like she may have some whips and chains in a hidden room or she may be perfect as one of the bridal ghouls in a novel, but that would mean one would have to write about this bad dress and I know that can't happen. Even Mrs. Havisham wouldn't wear this for 40 years.
Some love this look but, frankly I am sick and tired of these huge gaps between their ta-ta's. This looks like Capt. Kirk may ask her out after he beamed down to get some dilithium crystals. I won't even comment on Jenny Beavan, the winner for best Costume Designer. She was wearing back black pants and top with a scarf and a pleather jacket with crystals on the back. I thought it was hilarious.
I forget who he is and, why bother. I like shiny and all that but this sucks.
Now...2 looks that one may either love or hate. Which one do you fall on or better yet, would you wear this? I have one for the women and one for the men.
I like it but I wouldn't wear it..not my style nor do I have that body. Would you wear this ladies? Hello Men, If your better half(:)) wore this would you go stand beside some other woman you don't know?....I know you would stand beside your love no matter what but just saying....
OK Men, would you wear this? If your man wore this, ladies, would you walk beside him or duck under the bleachers?
3. BEST SPEECH
I loved what the presenter, Louis C.K. said when he was given the task of presenting the Best Documentary Short. It was priceless and so true. I bet most of the nominees do drive a Honda Civic. Leo Di Caprio also gets cudos for his speech as well.
4. WORST SPEECH
The presenter, Patricia Arquette, was as dull as dirt. It reminds me of her dull performance in Boyhood (bleccchhhhh). She needs some shot of, I don't know, actually being alive. I was not too enamoured with Jenny Beavan's speech for best costume. It was right up there with her dress style.
5. THE WORST NOMINATION
I have 2...Best Costume Design for The Revenant. OK, he wore a bear rug on him but, really? Most of those clothes of the rugged fur trappers I saw growing up on the sawmill. The other is Jennifer Lawrence for Joy. Really? I know she made a movie but we don't have to nominate her every year especially for Joyless. Oh, It's about a woman who invented a better mop-wow, earth shattering isn't it?
There are 2 again...that chick who came out after being introduced by Chris Rock..WTF??? and the Girl Scout Cookies...WTF??
7. WHAT DRUG ARE THEY ON?
I have to give it to John Legend. He was all smiley and looked like he was ready to catch butterflies.
8. WHO LOOKS LIKE THEY CAME FROM ANOTHER PLANET
To me that's simple......Rooney Mara, poor thing but why can't she bloody smile? She is looking a bit like those freaky twins from Full House.
9. WHO DO I WANT TO PUNCH IN THE FACE
I have no idea why but every time I see Eddie Redmayne I have that strong desire to smack him. Under that English "I'm so humble" attitude, I see smarm.
10. WHO DO I LOVE
Andy Serkis! I was so happy to see him present at the movies and they showed a nice montage of some of his work. The guy is amazing in my book and deserves that recognition.
Now for those of you who were perturbed that Downton Abbey was postponed for a week, our show will air this Sunday. I was one who was glad they postponed it but I think I was one of the few. For those who watched, have anything to add?
