While I enjoy the musical numbers, finding out who won, and, sometimes, the speeches, my favorite aspect of the Oscars are the dresses and the red carpet interviews.
Who do you think was best dressed last night?
My vote goes to Cate Blanchet. I loved her dress, but, then again, when you’re that tall and slender, a potato sack would look like it cost a kazillion dollars.
As for worst dressed, after showing remarkable fashion sense this whole award season, I have to say that Lupita Nyong’o’s dress did nothing for her. But her acceptance speech had me sniffling.
It was great to see movies about real causes, like Dallas Buyers Club and Twelve Years A Slave, rewarded with the golden statue. Gravity took home the most Best Of, and it was a beautifully crafted film.
One of the best films I’ve seen in a long time had only one nomination and won nothing, but it will haunt me forever. If you get a chance to see, Lone Survivor—do it.
So, chime in with your favorite moments, best dressed, most terrific speech (Jared Leto fore me, but I do have a crush on him), and whatever else struck you.
May you have a Momentous Monday!
