My top three favorite looks on the red carpet last night go to...
Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson, and Emma Watson were all stunning! Even though these gals didn't win any Oscars, they sure looked like a million bucks.
Other thoughts: Ellen was absolutely perfect. Ordering pizza at the Oscars? Classic. Seriously, why didn't anybody else think of that? Jennifer Lawrence is still the coolest cat around, despite her clumsiness...and maybe even a little because of it. Oh, John Travolta. I was actually embarrassed for you. Idina Menzel seemed pretty nervous while singing 'Let It Go' and didn't sound nearly as good as usual. Kind of disappointing, if you ask me. And as much as I admire Cate Blanchett, I was rooting for Meryl Streep to win Best Actress. Her performance in August: Osage County was unbelievable. How about 12 Years a Slave for Best Picture?! I have yet to see it, but it looks like nothing short of a movie masterpiece.
Out of all the Oscar winners, my favorite acceptance speech had to be Matthew McConaughey's... I loved that he chose to speak about the influence of God and family in his life instead of settling for the typical "I'd like to thank the Academy..." followed by a long list of forgettable names. His speech was very meaningful and well-prepared, and didn't have much to do with show biz. I'm not the biggest McConaughey fan, but I was pleasantly surprised. (Even though I was inwardly crying for poor Leo. Perhaps fifth time's a charm...)
Tell me your thoughts!
