Oscar Buzz


Beautiful ladies, dapper gents. The artistic elements of the night - the clothes, music, performances and speeches give the night a fantasy quality that makes it hard to pull myself away to the ho-hum tasks of life.

My loving husband offered to clean the kitchen so I wouldn't miss any of the show. He's speakin' my love language, big time. Sadly, J's fighting a nasty bug with fever, sore throat and bad tummy so commercial breaks are spent checking in on him.

Hugh Jackman is doing a good job - I appreciate that he's not trying to be a comedian but playing up his theater background. Loved the homemade Slumdog set with pizza boxes.

Just watched the James Franco, Seth Rogan bit. Too funny!

For being a fairly artsy kind of town, many of the nominated films are only playing at one theater in downtown. I'll admit, I didn't get to see all of the best picture films but I'm rooting for the one that I did see - Slumdog Millionaire. If you haven't seen it yet, go. Go now. Really - I'm not kidding, it's that good. (If you must wait until after the Oscars, that's ok.)

Excuse me now while I mingle with Brad, Angie, Rachel, Hugh and Kate. Catch you all at the after-party.

Hehehe! I loved the show! Wasn't it so Old Hollywood? Something. Loved it.

Did you ever see Pineapple Express, that the Franco skit was based around? SO funny. I love that guy.

Who did you think had the best dress? I really liked the Miley Cirus (sp?lol) dress, but I thought it was too much dress for her. It would have been wonderful on someone like Kate Winslet, or someone.

Hey Amber! Yes - I loved the show. I loved when past winners praised all the nominees - how classy was that! Hugh Jackman was awesome - he looked like he was really having fun.

Hmm - favorite dress? I liked Kate Winslet's whole look - the hair and and the dress. I really liked Frieda Pinto's dress, too. I'm not a huge fan of Angelina overall but wow - the woman looked awesome! The whole night was such a fun distraction. The only drawback was all the snarky comments by the fashion police afterwards saying people weren't glamorous. Give me a break. If they had glammed it up more, they would have been skewered for "showing off" in this hard economy. No pleasing those ones!

Have a great week!
