February 26 07

my plan was to sit in front of my tv, laptop placed appropriately in lap, and live-blog the oscars. but, ah, of course, the best laid plans…my mom’s flight was delayed and delayed and delayed (there are crazy snowstorms in the midwestm, dontchaknow?!) until she finally rebooked until the morning, and the husband swiped my laptop for himself…so, here i am, blogging the morning after.

the good:

~Ellen Degeneres. love her. she was hilarious all night.

~Jaden Smith might just be my most favorite Oscar presenter to date. he was so freakin’ adorable. i wanted to take him home in my pocket.

~the three biggies giving Marty Scorsese his first Oscar. fabulous.

~all the Leo shout-outs. the academy might not love him, but everyone else sure does.

~the OTHER trio of the night: Jack Black, Will Farrell, and John C. Reilly (who was in both Boogie and Talladega nights…best line of the night by far!)

~i know i’ll get yelled at for this one…but i thought Gwyneth looked great. she remembered to not let her boobies sag like sad little deflated water baloons like in the past.

the bad:

~the cheesy al gore announcing his non-candidacy:

~normally, i love me some rachel weisz. she’s stunning and always looks good. i actually even liked her dress…but the mound, people! the mound!

the ugly:

~Jack Nicholson goin’ all Britney Spears on us.

  1. You and I definitely think alike (my review is similar to yours).

  2. I’m just disappointed Pan’s Labyrinth didn’t take home best foreign film.

    But kudos to Scorsese; he’s more than earned his nod.

  3. i also liked the three big directors. i especially liked the predictable-yet-still-amusing barbs directed at lucas for not having an oscar. also, jaden was adorable, but abigail looked a bit like a small pastry in that dress. and jack nicholson? *shudder*

  4. So how long do you think it will take before the J. Lo pregnancy rumors start again? Or did I miss the big announcement? Hee!

  5. I think Gwynth looked beautiful last night, unlike my normal opinion of how she looks. But I didn’t watch any of the Oscars!

  6. Oh my word. The mound was right. That dress showed everything that you don’t want it to!! I did NOT like it. Reese W. looked AMAZING. She probably was my favorite of the night. I think it is the best she has looked in YEARS!! Thanks Ryan!

  7. Gwyneth’s boobs did look good this time…. It was a good show, I think. I really enjoyed it. Kudos to ELLEN! I heart her so frigging much.

  8. I loved JLo’s dress. Maybe there’s something wrong with me. I just thought it was divine. Loved the stones, everything about it.

  9. Emily Blunt is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It might be the accent and the good looks. I definely liked Ellen and chortled a few times.

    Gwyneth? Seriously??

  10. I thought Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman needed haircuts! I just don’t get the long, straight, thin at the ends thing…it’s like Cher.

  11. jaden does look cute. I didn’t see that part and only saw nicole kidman walk out to present so that’s as much as I watched

  12. When I was watching the Oscars, I thougth about blogging it and then actually thought … “Ali will do an awesome round up so I’ll just read hers.” ANd your’s was the awesomest. Love it.

  13. I didn’t like Cameron’s look either.

  14. I didn’t watch. I think I’m done with award shows. Now, if Gore would actually announce his candidacy, that’s something I’d get excited about.
