You Guessed It - It's Oscar Monday!!

Well, I'm sure I'm not the only blogger out there writing about the Oscars today, but I just can't help it! I love movies, and actors and seriously pretty clothes and accessories that I could never afford.

What did everyone think of James Franco and Anne Hathaway as hosts? I would say it probably wasn't the best hosting I've seen, but I like them both and thought it was fun. And, Anne has a great singing voice!

So, let's talk about the winners. 

I saw The Fighter a few months back with B, and we loved it. Now, the fact that both Mark Wahlberg (swoon) and Christian Blare were in the movie definitely helped to peak my interest, but we both thought it was an awesome on-screen portrayal of a true story. I didn't expect The Fighter to win best picture, but, it would have been awesome!! I did, however want both the Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards to go to actors from the film. Thankfully, both Christian Bale and Melissa Leo won for their amazingly well-acted roles in The Fighter, so I was happy to see that!

I haven't seen Black Swan or The King's Speech, but felt that both Natalie Portman and Colin Firth deserved the awards for their roles. By the way, is Natalie Portman not the cutest pregnant girl, ever?! And, it was no real surprise that The King's Speech won for Best Picture; I was expecting just that, and have now come up with my usual post-Oscar list of must-do's:

1) My taste in movies is not all that artistic, but I must see The King's Speech ASAP to see what the hype is all about.
2) I must return our Modern Family Season 1 DVD as soon as we're finished so that we can finally get The Social Network.
3) I need to figure out a way to get the GMA Oscar correspondent position and fill in for my girl Erin Andrews next year - does it help that I follow her on Twitter?!
4) If I cannot become the GMA correspondent, do you have any tips on how I can at least get invited to the Oscars? Or the Golden Globes? Anyone?

So, now the important things - who wore it best? Who knocked it out of the park again this year?

For the ladies, there were five women that I thought stole the show. In no particular order ...
I thought Anne rocked it out best in her red carpet ensemble - love the lady in red look!!
Mila looked stunning - even though I'm not a huge fan of pastels, or pasties, I thought she rocked it.
Again, is she not the cutest preggo girl in the world!? She was beaming!!

I have always loved Reese Witherspoon, and he classic look really hit the jackpot last night!

Speaking of Reese, did any of you catch her amazing accessories?! You go girl. Call me if you need a temporary home for any of those pieces. 
 And, last but certainly not least, the unsung beauty that is Erin Andrews - girl is smokin' if you ask me, and her dress was to die for!!

Of course, I couldn't leave out two of my faveorite Oscar men. None other than the handsome duo or Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale - yummy!

So, another Oscar season has come to a close. What were your favorite parts this year??

Al of those ladies were beautiful on the red carpet! It was kind of a boring show but I enjoyed seeing what everyone was wearing

Pamela M said...

Same here - to me, most of it is about the buzz and the clothing!!

Agreed about Anne and James, I just didn't think they were funny but I have been told I have no sense of humor so I thought maybe it was just me.
Let me know if you are able to get tickets! I want to go! HA!

Jessica said...

I just posted about Reese's dress! Haha, how funny. Loved Mila, she always wears such flattering outfits.

I wish Christian Bale would just shave already, I miss him circa Batman. YUM. LOL

Pamela M said...

Agreed, Christian looks kinda creepy with that huge beard. He looked his best in his Newsies and Batman days!

Jessica - I will have to check out your post - thanks!
