Oscars chit chat

Here are my thoughts about last night's show:

  • I think Hugh Jackman did a great job as a host. Sure there were some cheesy moments but overall, he was very charming and entertaining and a talented singer and dancer to boot! They need to find him some Chicago-like movie. And did any of you watch his Barbara Wawa interview where he gave her a little lap dance at the end? Yowza!
  • Loved the bit with Kate Winslet shouting out for her parents and her dad whistling - I almost teared up during that moment
  • As much as I looked forward to seeing Rob Pattinson present, his bit was one of the more dull moments of the evening
  • The musical number with the HSM and Mamma Mia kids plus Beyonce was so-so, I wish the kids had done more
  • Loved the James Franco/Seth Rogen bit
  • Loved how they kept cutting to Angelina during Jennifer Aniston's presentation
  • I liked how they brought out past winners for the acting awards. Definitely upped the sentimental factor but I also love the way this Yahoo recap described it in reference to the presentation of Best Supporting Actress - the first award of the night: "...the show bogged down with that somber bunch of Best Supporting Actresses intoning like they were going to banish the winner to the Forbidden Zone with General Zod."
I have the show on DVR and I might watch it again. I had some of my buddies over for the show so I know I missed lots of parts with all our gabbing and what not.

And here are my thoughts on fashion for the evening...

Best Dressed

Kate Winslet, Taraji P. Henson, Anne Hathaway

Worst Dressed

Miley Cyrus, Jessica Biel, Beyonce (who needs to stop wearing her mother's designs)

And just for giggles, here is a pic of Rob on the red carpet:

What did you guys think about the show?

I was working and missed it:(
I can't make up my mind about Beyonce's dress...

I didn't watch it, but looked forward to your post & all the fashion discussion online.

What was up with all of the white & really light colored dresses? Is this some new theme that I need to work with? I need to get dresses to wear to three weddings this year - am I going to be stuck dressed as an Easter Egg?

Amanda, Beyonce's dress is horrible. You must have baby brain.

Ok, so I've been informed that the Amanda that posted about Beyonce's dress is an entirely different Amanda than I had previously thought.

My comment on B's dress stands, though minus some of the snark (cuz I don't know you) and the baby brain comment. :D

I only saw a little bit but agree that Hugh did a decent job.

I did manage to see how pretty Heath Ledgers sister run in the family!
