Oscar in just a few lines [Feb. 28th, 2011|12:29 am]

Anne Hathaway looks fabulous in everything. Which is what they put her in, through the course of the evening.

There wasn't a single "WTF was she thinking!?!" dress in the evening - dresses I liked more and less, but no disasters.

The King's Speech totally deserved the win.

Kirk Douglas was the best moment of the night.

No one dissed anyone, TYVM Ricky Gervais!

The gimmicks weren't too overly gimmicky, though they came close.

I got the most guesses right of our group, winning with 15. I was only truly disappointed about Hallie Stienberg not winning.

Natalie Portman's raspberry dress was an adorable handling of the baby bump.

Melissa Leo swore her way to redemption.

We had a very nice party.

I'm dating Anne Hathaway! (Okay, I wish.) I still haven't seen The King's Speech, although I'm planning to. It sounds like a cool movie.

It's small but delightful.

Did you miss Cate Blanchet's table cloth dress?

I agree! That was awful! A picture window cutout so you could look at her (non)boobs, and white cardboard shoulder pieces like something you take out when opening a brand new men's shirt. Ghastly.

Whereas I kind of dug it. Very Star Trek-y.

Yeah, that was the only one that had me cringing. What was with the front of it? Blech.

I kinda dug it. She looked like a visiting ambassador in a Star Trek movie.

I giggled when she did that little tassle twirling thing. She was quite adorable.

She was. I hope she gets to do it again, though with a different co-host. We could even stick with a James, but make it Marsden.

Charlie Sheen is too big a target to avoid, really.

I didn't think the last dress was terrible, though she did look like upholstery.

I voted for Hailee, too, because I wanted it so bad. 17 is impressive! I don't know what was up with HBC, but you're right that she didn't look happy.

The other one who looked miserable was Sandra Bullock. She was up on the stage, looking absolutely stunning, harassing the Best Actor nominees, but her heart was clearly not in it.

Probably too many reminders of last year, right before the wheels came off the cart. She's soldiered on very well, but it's gotta be hard.

It's so true: Hathaway looked drop-dead excellent! There were a LOT of dresses that people are going to want to buy/copy this year....

Even Helena Bonham Carter didn't look outlandish! A very staid red carpet, this one.

Thanks for the wrap up. They should all be so good and short.

I don't mind the length of the evening, but that's because we have a party and sharing makes it fun.
