(Including a play by play of the stars’ arrivals…)
I love watching the Oscars. Like so many others, as soon as the red carpet show begins, I am glued to the television to pass judgement on what frocks the stars show up wearing (FYI – Jennifer Lopez’s dress is u.g.l.y. and the Japanese girl from Babel looks amazing) in anticipation of the ceremony.
Every year, for the past 13 or so, I have gotten together with friends to watch the show and to place bets on who the big winners will be. This year though, the circumstances are a little different. Rather than hosting or attending an Oscar shindig, Dan, Jaia and I will be watching at home together with our jammies on. I can’t say I’m that disappointed though. The first few hours of the show normally keeps us all enthralled, but by the end everyone is watching the clock and trying to hold back the yawns wishing it would just end already.
(Update: Rachel Weiss=gorgeous, Cameron Diaz=sailor).
On the other hand, I will miss the colour commentary with the girls, the amazing food, the yummy drinks and especially the Oscar pool. Michelle Nichols walked away the winner for the past two years in row but I think 2007 would have been my year. Lucky for her the Fullertons are MIA, that way she may get to keep her title for a little while longer. 😉
(Update: Jennifer Hudson=bad bolero, Kelly Preston=leopard print?)
The best part so far? Joan rivers no longer hosts the pre-Oscar red carpet show. Phewf. What a relief.
(Update: Anne Hathaway and Kirsten Dunst=ew).
(Queen Latifah=hubba hubba, Portia De Rossi=hot)
(Kate Winslett=WOW, Cate Blanchett=elegant)
(Reese Witherspoon=better without Ryan, Nicole Kidman=ummm…Big. Red. Bow.)
(Elizabeth Shue=are you heading straight to the office after the show?)
OK. I’m done. Enjoy the show.
