Academy Awards

February 25, 2013

The Academy Awards. Celebrities, pop culture, gowns, movies, and this year: musicals! What more could a girl ask for? I would like to point out that I was 8/10 predictions-wise this year! Here are some of my personal highlights:

1. I loved the musical theme. The Oscars were already my favorite night of entertainment, so to add the musical theme was just the icing on the cake.
2. Barbra Streisand. I don't think I need to elaborate.
3. Sparkles. From dresses to stage decorations, the night was filled with shimmer and shine.
4. Adele's acceptance speech. Could this woman be any more adorable?
5. FLOTUS. Michelle Obama announced best picture this year. Michelle Obama.
6. Ben Affleck tearing up when he thanked his children. This man can do no wrong.

Now let's move on to the most important part: Fashion. I have to say I was disappointed in the Fashion this year. No one wowed me.

Worst Dressed (also disappointing):

1. Amanda Seyfried:

This was a weird shade of gray that didn't mix with her fair skin. Also I really don't love the neckline, which leads me to...

2. Salma Hayak:

3. Kristen Stewart:

Let's take a closer look at that greasy hair, shall we?
I honestly don't think I need to explain why she's on the worst dressed list.

4. Jennifer Hudson:

Don't get me wrong, she's looking great these days, but I just was not feeling this cheetah-esque dress. Also that hair...

5. Zoe Saldana:

Too busy, weird side bow, weird flowery top, 5th grader's belt.

6. Naomi Watts (switches from best at the Globes to worst here):

Just too bizarre for my liking.

7. Anne Hathaway:

It took me way too long to figure out what color this dress was. The jewelry with that neckline is too much and I was distracted by her side-boob.

8. Jennifer Garner:

I really hate to put her on the worst dressed list...but that explosion of fabric in the back deserves it. I do like this color on her however.

Best Dressed:

1. Jessica Chastain (moves from worst dressed at Globes to best here):

Very elegant and classic. My style.

2. Reese Witherspoon:

All-around gorgeous. Especially love this color on her, and that hair style.

3. Halle Berry (also moves from worst to best):

I have to say, I'm surprised I liked this. This is a major step up from her worst dressed moment at the Globes.

4. Stacy Keibler:

So well done.

5. Sandra Bullock:

I love a good lace dress.

6. Corrine Foxx (Jamie's daughter; couldn't find a picture of her alone):

She's so put together!

7. Michelle Obama (obviously):

Like I said, it was a pretty disappointing year for fashion. Gowns failed to stand out.

While the gowns may not have hit the mark, the winners certainly did, my mark! Here's who I picked for the ten categories that interested me and the winners:

Best Picture: Argo. It won! Yay Ben Affleck!
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis, who also won. Congratulations to him for being the first to win three of these awards. He truly was phenomenal in Lincoln.
Best Actress: Jennifer Lawrence, also a winner! She is too adorable, even when she falls up the stairs.
Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz-winner. For my Globe  predictions I had Alan Arkin in Argo. However, since the Globes, I have seen Django Unchained and believe Christoph Waltz was the obvious choice.
Supporting Actress: Sally Field, unfortunately lost. Anne Hathaway won. Boo, she was only in the movie for five seconds.
Director: Steven Spielberg, also lost. Ang Lee won. I can't say I'm disappointed, he's pretty adorable and a great pick.
Cinematography: Life of Pi. Had to look up the definition for this one before making my choice, but I was correct!
Music: Life of Pi, winner. I don't know why, exactly, I picked this...intuition I guess.
Original Song: "Skyfall" by Adele. Obviously she won. No competition.
Visual Effects: Life of Pi- won.

Damn, I'm good at this. I should have bet money on it...
