Did you all get to watch the Oscars last night? What were some of your favorite moments? I actually watched the Red Carpet event and the awards. I was very happy to see Cameron Mathison, as one of the hosts. I miss him on All My Children. I rarely get to watch the awards as I don’t spend a lot of time watching TV. To tell you the truth, I haven’t event seen any of the movies out. I usually wait to see them on Netflix.
I really enjoyed watching the stars come out and seeing their beautiful gowns and seeing their dates. I would have to say Michelle Willliams looked amazing and so did many others.
Everyone was talking about what Billy Crystal would do for the opening act. It was a surprise and very well done. It is always a great time watching Billy and I miss seeing him in comedy’s. If you saw this part of the show, you know he took the nominated movies and put himself in as characters in the montage. I especially liked him with George Clooney.
The show started out with 2 wins for Hugo. I guess I will need to go see this one. I thought by the previews it was more of a kids movie.
What did you think of Angelina and her dress on stage?
The next winner was Octavia Spencer for supporting actress in the role for The Help.
Hugo won some more oscars and then Christopher Plummer for Supporting Lead Actor in Beginners.
Original Song was Man or Muppet.
Original Score – The Artist.
Then came the commercials. JC Penny launched their new commercials with Ellen. They were all outtakes from shows from the past.If you watched the show on Friday, she shared some parts that didn’t make it in the commercials.
The finale –
Best Actor – Jean Dujardin
Best Actress – Meryl Streep
Best Picture – The Artist
So in the next few weeks, I will be watching most of these movies that won awards including Moneyball.
Were you surprised by any of the winners? Now on to the after party! Do you want Billy Crystal to come back next year, or who would you choose? Leave some comment love, and make sure to come back and sign up for my rss feeds on the right.
