Welcome to Hollywood...What's Your Dream?

So what was up with Clooney last night? Everyone's always so happy and glowing at the Oscars and he looked like he was just mad at the world! I love the Oscars. I love the dresses the fan fare, the speeches....I just love that for a night, even while sitting at home in my PJs, I get a glimpse of the glamour. And don't think my mom and sister didn't make a fresh plate of brownies so we could discuss how teeny tiny SJP and Maggie Gyllenhaal are in a completely guilt free manner.

I absolutely loved Steve Martin and Alex Baldwin hosting. I thought they were hilarious and they could poke fun without anyone getting offended. In fact, I think Steve Martin brings that charm. I don't think Alex could get away with it without Steve Martin. But who on earth could get mad at Steve Martin? No one! They were great.
My other favorite parts of the night:
  • Sandra Bullock's acceptance speech- Class, grace, elegance
  • Kathryn Bigelow sticking it to the man. And by "the man" I mean James Cameron.
  • Ben Stiller dresses as a crazy Avatar dude. Hilarious!
  • Friends, mentors, co-stars introducing the best actor/actress nominees. I loved hearing such wonderful things about each nominee. It made it personal and special.
  • Speaking of...Stanley Tucci and Meryl Streep- I would love to be in their inner circle. Love them both!
  • The John Hughes tribute. He was the man of my adolescent movie experience. When Ferris and Molly Ringwold walked out it was like I was taken back in time! When you look back at all of the GOOD movies he made it is just crazy.

A few of my favorite gowns were Sandra, Mariska Hargitay, Rachel McAdams and Cameron Diaz. My honorable mention goes to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Miley Cyrus. I thought they both looked really pretty!


Who were your favorites? Or not-so-favorites?? Charlize anyone? And does Demi Moore live in a time capsule? I swear she does.not.age. Flawless!

Thats what I tweeted last night about George Clooney. He looked pissed off at everyone! I recieved something back saying they thought he was drunk on the red carpet. haha that would explain alot.

I loved Sandra Bullock!!

I was thinking the same thing about George Clooney last night! I don't know what his deal was. And I LOVED Cameron Diaz's dress, so beautiful!

Vanessa said...

I love your favs! They were all gorgeous!

First, I love the Pretty Woman reference in your title. {Speaking of, where was Julia Roberts last night? Maybe embarrassed from her drunk performance at the GG?} I love the Oscars too - but mostly for the dresses. And the few funny moments & rare good acceptance speech. Glad Kathryn Bigelow stuck it to the man too!

L-O-V-E your title. Awesome!

I want Rachel McAdams' dress. I am obsessed!!!

Sara said...

I loved the Oscars! And the dresses! Do you think Clooney was really mad? I just thought he was being "fake" mad during the opening speech. I figured that it was all pre-arranged to be funny. He was all smiles on the red carpet beforehand.

Mariska Hargitay was simply stunning. Perfect from head to toe.

Cameron looked SO gorgeous...as did so many others! Sandra's speech was amazing! And I so agree about George being pissy looking! I was like "what the heck happened to him?" haha.. *shrugs*

Kristen said...

How does Cammy D. get her hair to look like that?! Love, love, loved her. Miley looked great (and age appropriate) too...

I think Sandra Bullock stole the show. She looked beautiful and her speech was excellent! I'm so glad she won!

As soon as I read your title, all I could hear in my voice was the guy on Pretty Woman saying, "What's yo dream?"

Made me smile! :)
