Today was a good Monday. I got a day off thanks to Telstra hosting a live Oscars event, and celebrating the launch of their new rewards program called ‘Thanks’. THANKS big time to them for hosting a few bloggers, and columnists at a Gold Class cinema, where we were fed, and spoilt with Moet (beginning at 10am no less). It was fantastic. Seeing the red carpet on a BIG screen, whilst in a recliner, and being able to cheer, and live commentate with fellow fans! Ah! I was in heaven!
So who and what stood out for me?
Jennifer Garner in this gorgeous mulberry wine coloured dress, and along side her, Jessica Chastain (who was my favourite to win tonight) in this bronzey jewelled gown.
Naomi Watts. Absolute stunning in a silvery metallic piece by Armani Prive. A columnist from MX that sat nearby called it amazing ‘robo-boobs’. I had to mention that!
Oh, J-Law! A gorgeous, stunning dress from Valentino (I think?) and.. a little fall as she went up the stairs. And doesn’t it make your heart melt to see our Hugh and Bradley Cooper rush to the rescue? Swoon!
Oh, and I figured you’d want to see the front of the dress…but seriously. Hugh and Bradley. Beautiful men.
Thankyou Kerry Washington for being as flawless as you always are. Love the smoothed layered hair, and the beautiful detailing in the bodice.
How damn adorable 9 year old Best Actress nominee Quvenzhane Wallis (I had to imdb that spelling) is and how excited, and ecstatic to hear her film being mentioning, and her own nomination? A name to watch – especially as she was just named as the new ‘Annie’ in Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s remake…
An honourable mention. A rare moment too if you will. Kristen Stewart who arrived on crutches, smiling. This dress is pretty swish.
And what can I say, Seth McFarlane. Toilet humour at its finest, and he wasn’t at his peak; but I LOVED his take on Django Unchained being Chris Brown’s idea of a date movie. Seriously. The opions online seemed to be right down the middle, loving or loathing him. I haven’t laughed so much in a monologue though I have to say. And it could have been due to his ‘We Saw Your Boobs’ musical intro. I LOVED the pre-recorded reactions of the actresses he named. What did you think?? Too much?
