Oscar Dish!

Let’s talk Oscars! Did any of you watch last night? What did you think of Seth MacFarlane as a host?

Favorite Moments

I love that Jennifer Lawrence tripped on the stairs up to get her Oscar for Best Actress. I didn’t love it because of schadenfreude, but because she handled it so well and was so funny when she accepted the Oscar. She’s darling.

And let’s be honest, of COURSE it was Hugh Jackman who ran to her assistance. I’m only shocked it wasn’t Ryan Gosling. Everyone knows that if you’re getting saved by a celebrity it’s going to be 1. Ryan Gosling, 2. Hugh Jackman, 3. Harrison Ford, and in that order.

Lipstick Faces!

Best Actor Daniel Day Lewis with Meryl's Lipstick on his Face Oscars. Such a cute moment!

The girl above is Emma, whose mother won for the Academy Award for Animated Feature for Brave. We’re all familiar with Princess Merida, but Emma is the real girl who inspired the movie heroine. And I love that she has her mother’s lipstick kiss on her face. It’s the cutest.

And Daniel Day Lewis, who deserved the win for Best Actor in Lincoln. He’s got Meryl Streep’s lipstick on his face, in a sweet touch. His acceptance speech was lovely, you could tell he was moved by the award. Plus, he ended by saying the Oscar was for his mother.

The Winners

I really liked Argo, so I don’t mind it won Best Picture. I think Lincoln will hold up over the years (it’s a wonderful film, you should watch it.) I don’t get the Life of Pi wins at all, points to Ang Lee for being so nice, I guess.

Loved Queen Latifah’s dress, she looked amazing.

I’m hearing that people didn’t like Naomi Watts’ dress, but I did. I think it’s unusual and I love the fabric and color.

And then Jane Fonda went FULL DYNASTY. (I still love it.)

My favorite dress wasn’t even at the Oscars, it was a few thousand miles away. Get a load of First Lady Michelle Obama’s dress. STUNNING.

    I missed the Oscars, but that picture of Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful even though she’s falling. Almost like a Rodin sculpture.

    Meryl Streep announcing DDL without hesitation, essentially dropping the mic so we could all GET THIS SHOW DONE.
