**Linking up with MamaKat today: 4.)The award for best and worst Oscar moments goes to..
I am a celebrity freak. I think it all started when I was little because my Grandma always had an endless supply of celebrity magazines and books. I spent one weekend at her house reading Vanna White’s bio and another reading Oprah’s. We always drank coffee, played cards, took a bubble bath and read celebrity mags. It was kid heaven and began my love of all things pop culture.
I always watch the awards shows each season. Typically I head over to my friend and neighbor’s house and we watch them together. I like watching with her because there’s no talking during the show and, if we want to discuss a dress or a joke, we pause the show so as not to miss anything. It’s like the Super Bowl for guys. We make crabbies and homemades (Silver Linings anyone?) and hang out. I love it.
The Red Carpet is probably my most favorite part. I get so into the dresses and the glamour. The worst moment for me this year was Anne Hathaway’s dress. I adore her. I think she’s so chic. That dress was A-W-F-U-L. Beside the fact that the dress was blah and her necklace didn’t go and it didn’t fit right…did you see her nipples?? It was so distracting! She had to know there was a 99.999% chance she was going to win and yet she wore an awful dress. I was bummed. I really like Anne…but her acceptance speeches typically annoy the crap out of me too. This year’s sounded very rehearsed and that always irritates me. They’re so much better when they’re not rehearsed!!! (Although Jodi Foster’s at the GGs was rehearsed…and still incredibly awful.)
Nothing was going to top Amy and Tina hosting the Golden Globes. That was the Holy Grail of perfect hosts and hilariousness. I thought Seth MacFarlane might be a close second. He was pretty good but, overall, I thought the show was pretty boring. I wanted to like it…but it was a dud. Daniel Day Lewis’ speech was surprisingly hilarious. I loved the look Jennifer Garner gave Ben Affleck when he won. Jennifer Lawrence is always perfectly herself. Ben’s speech about marriage was heartwarming and real. The best part of the night, for me, was the boob song. That was gold. I know there’s all sorts of controversy that it was sexist, etc., but he’s Seth MacFarlane people!!! He writes and stars in Family Guy!!! Take a chill pill…it’s called humor!!!
The absolute best part of the whole night came after Jennifer won for best actress. She was being interviewed by reporters afterwards and she was just hilarious and so real. I loved it.
What were your best and worst moments of The Oscars this year?
