Oscar Sunday Funday
While watching the Miss America pageant no longer makes us want to be among the company of 18 year olds (of appropriately evenly distributed ethnic backgrounds) with spray tans and bikinis, the Academy Awards will and always will make us want to be a movie star! We wanted to love our girl Anne Hathaway (classiest young star by far), but we have to say, her hosting with James Franco was kind of awkward. First of all, James seemed to have the charm of an 8th grade boy at Sunday lunch with his grandparents, and Anne was just a little too giddy. Eek. We still love her though, and she looked gorgeous (and really, who cares if you don’t do a great job if you look gorgeous).
Favorite dresses of the evening were Sandra (so classic and tasteful) and Cate Blanchett (love the structure and the little risk!). Also loved Gwyneth. Our worst was Scarlett (when will these people learn that the Oscars is not a place for patterned flower fabrics?!). What did you love / hate?
