It’s no secret now that the world was hoping and praying Daniel Day Lewis will take home the golden dude, making him the first male actor to ever win 3 Oscars in a leading role! I was however shocked to hear Jennifer Lawrence beat that poor little 9 year old girl among many other luminaries such as Naomi Watts whose heartwrenching performance in the Tsunami theme movie failed her. I was disappointed at that level. I love Jennifer’s freshness and candid humor but a part of me wanted the 9 year old Quvenzhane Wallis who would have made history as the youngest ever to win an Oscar for a lead role. 🙁
Congrats to Anne Hathaway, Adele, Ben Affleck whose humble and near-tear speech moved me the most. I am still yet to see his movie Argo that took home the biggest prize for Best Picture. This is an added incentive for me to see it this week for sure.
On a fashionable note: Kudos to Helen Hunt for wearing a simple and inexpensive dress by H&M in support of a charity mission. It’s not about how much you spend on a dress but about how well you wear it! If only half of Hollywood did just that, there wouldn’t be so much pressure on trying to outdo and out borrow gowns and blings to make a mark on the red carpet.
It’s safe to say shoulder pads from the 80s are coming back with a vengeance. Halle Berry rocked a custom made Versace Dynasty inspired dress, complete with the shoulder pads at the Oscars! Jane Fonda (stunning at 75!!!) also had one in her beautiful yellow dress. Word to the wise, start digging out those Dynasty dresses from the thrift shops! They are definitely back!
