Good morning – are you suffering from an acute case of Oscar hangover???! I was up late watching the entire show, so I figure today is going to be one HELL of a looooong day – I imagine productivity around the country will be somewhat lower than usual today (it is a Monday, though), as we all try to get past the lack of sleep brought on by one humdinger of a LOOOOOONG Oscar telecast. Let’s start with the fashion, shall we? There were a lot of winners last night (and a few real stinkers – yes, I’m talking to you Brandi Glanville – seriously…what the F happened to the top of your dress??! I don’t even dare post a picture on here as it is bordering on indecent, and we are Pretty Thing, not Porno Thing!!!) – here are a few highlights:
I enjoyed the music theme to last night’s show – the performances were good (go on with yo’bad self, Shirley Bassey!), and despite the shit-storm of controversy and criticism he received, I thought Seth MacFarlane did alright. He’s the dude behind ‘Family Guy’…were people expecting eloquence??! Don’t ask a funny guy who is known for pushing the limits to host if you aren’t prepared for those limits to be trompled on…it’s just stupid. I thought some of his bits were hilarious (‘Let the quest to make Tommy Lee Jones laugh begin!’), and some, of course, fell flat, but…I was pretty impressed with some parts of his hosting. I had no idea the man was such a song-and-dance guy, and I love that, so yaa! When he was hoofing it with Daniel Radcliffe and the divine Joseph Gordon Levitt, well, I got a wee bit giggly, I did. I don’t know that all of the criticism was fair – he did it, it was what it was, enough already. Let’s move on, shall we??!
I was thrilled for Jennifer Lawrence’s win (she’s too cute, that one – and her lack of filter is awesome), and Anne Hathaway’s win was certainly well-deserved. Three cheers for my beloved Quentin Tarantino (I have always believed, in my heart of hearts, that he and I are secret cerebral soul mates – there is something about his twisted mind that speaks directly to my twisted mind…I think we are cut from the same scary cloth, and I love it) for winning Best Screenplay, and I was thrilled that “Argo” took Best Picture. There were no real surprises or upsets last night, but there usually aren’t these days – with the plethora of awards shows, we pretty much have a good idea who is going to win anyway, but…it’s fun nonetheless to watch!
What did you think of the Oscars? I would LOVE to hear from you!
