First off, the fashion was HORRENDOUSLY disappointing. I seriously am hard-pressed to find a favorite. In fact, I find all of the fashion so lacking that I will only include one picture and it is not one that I thought I would include at the beginning of the night...
I know, I know. Some people called it a Baywatch replica, but I loved this dress and I loved Jennifer Lawrence in it. She was so fantastic in Winter's Bone and managed to hit it out of the park on this one as well. Yes, it is simple. But she is banging and manages to look both youthful and sexy all at the same time. There are other dresses that I liked, but no one else managed to do the trifecta of hair, make-up, and dress all right except Jennifer Lawrence. Her make-up is FLAWLESS and the hair is a perfect compliment to the dress. Well done, Jennifer. I don't care what anyone else has to say.
I liked Natalie Portman, but I hated her earrings, or earring. And her hair: terrible.
Reese Witherspoon looked like Oscar Barbie in a pale comparison of the winning Julia Roberts' dress.
Jennifer Hudson's boobs were a train wreck that I COULD NOT LOOK AWAY FROM.
Michelle Williams looked like a human icicle.
Amy Adams rocked a great dress, but bad hair and a TERRIBLE necklace choice.
I liked Gywneth. I did. She was dripping in metal, but there was something about the waistline that was discomforting.
And I want nothing to do with so many more.
Let's also discuss how stoned James Franco was and how he seemed like he didn't care AT ALL about what was happening. And how Anne Hathaway tried so hard to compensate for that; it's like she was a thirteen year old girl who had never seen a celebrity before, not to mention read a cue card. Her fake laughs (maybe real??) were grating by the end of the telecast.
Like I said on Facebook, the most surprising moment of the night was Billy Crystal's face lift. I will never be the same now that I know a male comedian who was never known for his looks has, too, fallen to the Hollywood regime.
With that said, I love Colin Firth and the boy with the afro who won for Live Action Short Film.
What did you guys think? Do you agree or disagree with my gruffness?
