Oscar Night 2011!
Oscar Night 2011, or as I'm calling it, "The Night 'The King's Speech' Won."
We all want The King's Speech to win. You would think that Toy Story 3 would be the household favourite, for obvious reasons, but we like to back a winner. Also, some scenes were filmed in Greenwich, so we like to support our hometown.
Some thoughts before the Big Event Begins:
Dresses I love:
-Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang. (I know I've said this before, but when I finally get nominated as Best Actress, I'll wear Vera Wang to the ceremony).
-Helena Bonham Carter. I'm sure she's wearing Vivenne Westwood, as she usually does. It looks as though she went to the trouble of wearing matching shoes tonight. I hope she wins, particularly because I can see that she brought her mother to the ceremony.
- Helen Mirren looks amazing. Again. Something for all of us to shoot for when we get older.
Dresses that are making me wrinkle my nose in distaste:
-Scarlett Johansson. Hate the colour. Hate the lace. Hate the whole thing.
-Nicole Kidman. It's interesting, but I'm not sure about it.
-Natalie Portman looks beautiful, but incredibly nervous. If I were her, I'd be worried about The Curse of the Best Actress Win. Come on. Think about it. The last few years, nearly every woman who's won it (with the exception of Helen Mirren) ended up breaking up with their husband or partner. Maybe she doesn't want to suffer the same fate.
-Gwyneth Paltrow looks like a female version of Oscar. I wonder if she'll talk about this on Goop. It's hard to believe she's got a cookbook coming out later this year, looking at her in that dress.
So I'll be here all night. Or not, if it gets boring. I was thinking about this before. The need to see it all live is not as great as it once was. We'll see if I last the night.
