SAG Awards: Fashion Report

I didn't actually catch the SAG awards last night, but I had fun reviewing all the red carpet pics this morning.

Here are some of my favorites:

I loved Becki Newton's dress - there were a lot of long white dresses but Becki's was definitely my favorite. As for America Ferrera, normally I wouldn't go for gray and lace, but I thought she looked so elegant and not "Ugly Betty" at all! Finally, Kate Beckinsale's dress added some fun to the red carpet with it's bright yellow color - hey, it worked for Reese last year!

BTW - I also think James Gandolfini's wife deserves a spot on the best-dressed list. And I know Chandra Wilson's look is a bit much and costume-y, but personally, I just loved how she went out there and had fun with it! Go Bailey!

And then the "Huh? I don't get it" ones...

I just didn't get Jane Krakowski's dress - the color, the decorations... it was a miss for me. And how could Michael Urie spend weeks rippin' the latest Miss America contestants just to show up at a big award event wearing a Pee Wee Herman outfit? Don't get it. Finally, Sandra Oh's dress was a little too much for me. Maybe if it didn't have the big bow and the long hanging ribbon, it might have been kinda cute.

Other ones... I didn't like the hair style choices of either Debra Messing or
Ana Ortiz.

I also thought Brittany Snow's dress was a little too mature and slinky for her. I think Christina Applegate did the look a lot better.

Someone save me from this stuff!

OK, seriously, someone needs to take my box of Chocolate Peanut Butter Pops away from me. It's like crack (I'm guessing) - it's soooo addicting!

When I first purchased this cereal, I think I devoured the entire "15 serving" box by the third day. I swore then I would never buy the stuff again but it was on sale at Safeway today so I couldn't resist. Big mistake!

Anyway, I now need to go put this box away in a very high, hard to reach cupboard of mine.

Thoughts on last night's Real Housewives

Just some random comments on last night's season finale:

1. According to Quinn, the chemistry between her and Billy is "undeniable". But honestly - their "flirting" during the whole Roxy act with the blonde wig was one of the most awkward things I've ever seen.

2. After all the build-up, we finally get to see Lauri and George's wedding - the one with no price budget! And yes, it was very pretty with the whole flower and garden thing with the big white tent dining area. I did find it amusing to see her come down the aisle in a traditional white fairy princess-like wedding dress given that this is her third wedding, but whatever. I was also surprised by her choice of green dresses for the bridesmaids... I didn't really find the color too appealing.

3. Jo came back! She's been busy recording her album and actually had a performance coming up. With dancers!!! (It figures she had to be the kind of singer that needs dancers... from what I remember, her voice is sorta ick.) I still can't get over the similarities between her and Heidi. I think Jo's former beau is supposedly managing her music career. *And* he's a tool just like Spencer.

And that was it for this season... not sure if I'll watch the NYC version of Real Housewives. The few promos I've seen didn't look that interesting. Good concept, though.

Shocking news...

This is so sad... supposedly, Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment today.

It will be sad when that new Dark Knight movie comes out... I hear he was really creepy as the Joker.

I am totally clueless this Oscar season

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning. As I scanned all the major categories, I realized I had not seen ANY of these movies. None. Zero. Zip. Usually I've seen a handful here and there but not this year. But admittedly, I don't go to the movies that much these days.

Then I scanned the not-so-major categories and I still seemed to be in the dark. But then finally I scanned some familiar titles:

The Bourne Ultimatum (Film Editing, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing)
Enchanted (Music - Song)
Pirates of the Caribbean (Makeup, Visual Effects)

... and that's pretty much it.

Who knows if there will even be an Oscar show this year? But if there is, I wouldn't really have anyone to root for... :(

I can't wait for...

... the season premiere of Lost! Anyone else looking forward to this?

I've received a few complaints that I haven't posted here in awhile. Sorry about that. :)

January 31st marks the return of 8 brand new episodes of Lost. Woo-hoo! The first hour will be a recap followed by the real premiere.

But if you want a quick recap right now, here you go! Everything you need to know about Lost in 8 minutes and 15 seconds:
