The Oscars - The Good, Bad & UUUUgly

"Fashions have done more harm than revolutions." - Victor Hugo

The winners were predictable, and I really have no issue with them, so let's get down to business.  The dresses!

Gwenneth Paltrow had a very nice dress.  Unfortunately, she's had a child and is no longer 22, so Gwen, honey, invest in a bra.  I know, I know, none of us wants to admit that gravity is a mean bitch, but she is.  Foundation. Garment.  Okay?  Thanks.

Jennifer Hudson.  I love her.  I do.  She was the underdog.  They treated her like crap on American Idol, and she rocked it in Dreamgirls.  But I don't give a crap if her dress was Oscar de la Renta or not, FORMAL DRESSES SHOULD NOT HAVE POCKETS.  And even if they do, you do not hook your thumbs in them, hillbilly-style.  The jacket...  even in my tipsy haze, I could see that it didn't work...  and in the clear light of day, I see that I was right.  Did she have no freinds to tell her it was bad?  Surely one of mine would step up.  Ah, well, Jen.  Live and learn.  But you won, so hey, screw 'em, right?

Maggie Gyllenhaal lost one of the straps to her dress before she got there.  I saw her looking for it.

Ellen was funny without being cruel.  I like her.

Jack Black, John C Reilly, and Will Ferrel were funny.  I don't care who you are.  If you didn't laugh at that, there's some thing wrong with your funny bone.

They were right.  Helen Mirren is HOT.  If I were interested in girls, and 30 years older, I'd go find her.  WOW.

Rachel Weisz also falls into the hot category.  Beautiful.

Cate Blanchett.  Teh Hot.

Penelope Cruz, although a fine actress, fell victim to the misconception that pink muppet arms go on the bottom of a dress.  From the thighs up she was FABULOUS, though.

Why is Cameron Diaz's (how the heck do you pluralize that?) skin the same color as her hair?  It's disconcerting.  Personally, I didn't care for her dress.  

I like Nicole better as a redhead.  She was working that dress, though.

Hey, kristibisci, what did you think?

P.S.  Lisa Ling's dress looked just like my senior prom dress (which my mother MADE and was positively charming in 1991).  Except instead of back satin, mine was royal blue changeable taffeta.  Eat that, Ling.
