…but aren’t the Oscars grand? SOmetimes current politics is too Orwellian to stare at straight on. I too was appalled at the “going green” thing at the academy, I kept thinking it was Gore’s set up for a joke that never came.
Sadly “Departed” was the only Oscar nominee other than Inconvenient Truth and Dead Man’s Chest that we’d seen yet, it was a random attempt at a date night and it was the only thing we could agree on (if it has Mark Wahlberg, Joan Cusack or Chris Cooper in it, I can not say no), but even though it was remarkably good, I was surprised to see it become an Oscar winner.
And on the fashion notes. Nicole Kidman: yawn. Jennifer Lopez in the empire waist with giant jewels, pretty without unduly undressing the pretty thing. Jennifer Hudson’s dress I actually like, but I love brown, it was better than the outfit she switched into to sing with Beyonce. Ha ha on Gwynneth Paltrow because just as I was thinking her combed over ironed hairdo was lovely even though a tad inconvenient to wear, it started static clinging to the mike and dancing up toward it while she was trying to talk. Yes, that is what I enjoy about watching, not the worst Seinfeld jokes imaginable.
Thank you so much to ladycakes for helping me remember to watch (& record) the show, I got through it in less than two hours and could fast forward through Celine.
