Secondly, I was shocked that Jennifer Lawrence took home Best Actress!! I think the category was chock-full of overwhelmingly sensational talent this year, but I was betting Naomi Watts would win for The Impossible. She was flawless in her portrayal of tsunami victim, Maria Belon. But I am not disappointed at all for the outcome... I just adore Jennifer Lawrence and am overjoyed for her night. Poor thing tripped on her way up to the stage and still completely rocked it. Um, and when she toppled, Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman both bolted to her aid... SWOON.
Flashback, did you see this intro of her SNL show a few weeks ago? A little foreshadowing, eh? eh? (apologies for the janky angle... it's all I could find!)
Now onto the good stuff! The gown discussion... here are my favorites:
my rants about my dislike for Selma Hayek, et al. However, this is about the dresses and nothing else. That being said, I really liked her deep navy halter situation tonight. She looked just phenomenal.
Giuliana, I slammed you earlier this week for your annoying ass phrases, but I really liked what you put together for tonight. The black was an easy go-to, but the overlapping, simplistic layers were timeless. And I loved that you weren't accessorizing with 6 feet of extensions. Well done.
My obvious choice for favorite.. Charlize. Wow. She makes it look so easy. The silhouette and the white were just so stunning. Coupled with the haircut and her ease, maneuvering that red carpet? She just stole the show. So perfect.
And I'll go ahead and wrap with a finale of Bradley Cooper con mama. How adorable is it that he brought his mom as his date? I just love when actors do this. And it doesn't hurt that he looks ridiculously handsome in that tux and facial hair combination. Well done, BC. Well done.
Who were your favorites on Oscar night??
