Let’s Talk About the Oscars.

Also known as my Superbowl. My Christmas. The BEST DAY.

In the past I’ve live blogged big awards shows and I had every intention of doing it Sunday until I just didn’t. I got about 20 minutes into the show that I just watched and stopped writing and didn’t read Twitter (although I wish I had, you guys are hilarious) and just enjoyed the show. So instead of my typical Hollywood post or live blogging reactions I’m just going to share what I thought. And three days after the show it’s still totally relevant right? Ha. Who knows. Here goes:

  • Seth MacFarlane: Overall I liked him. Yes some of his jokes were lame and low blow but overall he did what most hosts do. I will say that some people made a hoopla over his joke of women getting the flu before awards show to lose weight, however Amy and Tina made the hilarious joke about The Hunger Games being their preshow diet. Is that not along the same lines? In any case, let’s just have Amy and Tina host everything okay? And let’s just laugh.
  • Jennifer Lawrence is the best person. It was only solidified with her preshow interviews, facial expressionspost-show interviews, Jack Nicholson encounter and her not-so-graceful tumble to the stage. All in all, she wins. It all.
  • Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner also win, because THEY ARE THE MOST ADORABLE. And Ben noted about working on their marriage and each other and just, the cutest. I melt.
  • Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are adorable. Seriously, adorable. Also, Channing should dance all of the time. He even looks nice when he keeps his shirt on. And who knew Charlize could dance too?
  • Daniel Day Lewis is the best speech giver and apparently the best actor and just, nicely done dude, see you in five years.
  • Adele is just so endearing and wonderful and is just such a fabulous singer.
  • Halle Berry and Quvenzhane Wallis together is so wonderful. I hope Miss Wallis got some tips from Miss Berry and together they take over Hollywood.
  • Anne Hathaway. Some people admire her. Some people can’t stand her. I’m basically indifferent and apparently really need to see Les Mis to understand how someone can be in a movie for 30 minutes and win an Oscar. Other than that, her dress was definitely not my favorite and hopefully she had a good time despite all the backlash.
  • And Jesse Tyler Ferguson wins for the best post-Oscars photo bomb. Seriously this just makes me the happiest.

 

And what did you think about the show? Have any favorites? What did you think about the fashion – I’m pretty much on par with Jess’s recap.

happy wednesday!

  • I’m with you on Ben Affleck; that was an amazing speech. I also love how when Jennifer was on stage giving an award you could tell she looked at Ben and smiled. They are just adorable. Clearly in love. And I don’t get why people are complaining about what Ben said. Marriage is work (and I’m only 5 months in!).

    I am not a fan of Anne Hathaway now; I liked her in Love & Other Drugs, in the Princess Diaries, but modern day Anne I do not enjoy. HOwever, props to her for doing what she does and enjoying it. That’s all that matters and really I hope celebs don’t care that some of us don’t like them or their work!

    And yes, Charlize and her dancing. That was awesome!

  • I agree with pretty much everything. Love how Jennifer Lawrence has become everyone’s favorite now. She just seems so human compared to so many other actresses. I also enjoyed Seth MacFarlane. Everyone complained so much about how boring some of the previous shows were, so the Academy tried something different. It wasn’t all great, but it was a step in the right direction. I would love to see Amy and Tina … I’d also love to see Matt Damon, Brad Pitt or Jimmy Fallon!

    I fall on the like side of the Anne Hathaway divide — as short as her appearance was in Les Mis, she pretty much stole the show, although that was partly because of some weaker performances around her. I can understand if you don’t necessarily like her, but I don’t get the full-out Anne hate though.

    I am not a fan of Anne Hathaway, but thought she totally deserved the Oscar. Her performance in Les Mis was amazing (you need to see it)…. as was Hugh Jackman’s! I wish he had won the Oscar for best actor. He deserved it just as much.

  • ben affleck and jen garner are my everything.

    and thank you for the shout out! you know, prior to the intense anne hathaway backlash i was sort of indifferent towards her, but then i saw how everyone was treating her and thought she needed some defending! i certainly understand why people don’t like her (we’re not supposed to like everyone all of the time!), it’s when they turn it in to that passionate, overwhelming hate that i feel lines have been crossed for no reason.

    as always, love your recaps!

  • omg that photo bomb, love it.

  • I actually watched Ben’s speech live and it was pure geniune excitement and I think he wrapped it up completely beautifully at the end.

    I love Jennifer Lawrence so much & feel fiery strongly that Tina & Amy should host everything. They’re the best!
