Well, first of all I don't think I can really do an Oscar recap because I went to bed around 10:30, shortly after the documentary award went out. The best part of last night's Oscar presentation was the buzz on Twitter! I watch the Oscars faithfully every year- and I almost always sit through the whole thing- but I just couldn't do it last night.
My husband and I got Chinese take-out and camped out in the den as we usually do. It's our thing. :-)
It started off terribly with awful red carpet interviews; I watched the ABC pre-show and the green room interviews were absolutely charmless. Even pretty Reese Witherspoon seemed to lack personality. Then the show started and all I can say is that hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco basically tanked it. I love both of them in their films but when the most fun you have is complaining on Twitter that you're bored, maybe it's time to call it quits.
Awards-wise The King's Speech won Best Picture as predicted; I was slightly disappointed that Hailee Steinfeld didn't win Best Supporting Actress but the buzz was all about Melissa Leo.
The dresses were fun, of course. I loved Amy Adams' navy sparkler and Mila Kunis looked vintage-pretty if not exactly glamorous. I know everyone loves Gwenyth Paltrow's look but her whole icy-blonde thing just leaves me cold. Anne Hathaway looked great in all her many costume changes.
I'm sorry I don't have anything better to say. It just wasn't a very good show.
What did you think? Do you have any Oscar rituals? Did any of your favorites win?
