Please note that my systemic poison oak kept me from sleeping at all last night. So If I drift off mid-Thought , my apologies. Joining me on some Random Thoughts, Entertaining Sheila who is texting in from the Cozy Couch…
And the Oscar goes to:
Red Carpet arrival highlights: Tim Gunn and his generosity of spirit; Tina Fey looking fab and being funny; Colin Firth for just being Colin Firth; and Jennifer Lopez for giving girls like me a reason to moisturize in the morning. Like seriously moisturize.
Dress highlights poor moi: Penelope Cruz; Robin Roberts; Octavia Spencer; Glenn Close and Cameron Diaz.
Let us take a moment to thank Brad Pitt for showing up and looking like we all dream Brad Pitt looks 24/7. Thank you, Brad.
Fun to see the film clip start and the musical number by Billy Crystal. But it did cause my teen son to ask, ‘Who is THAT?”
Early slew of awards for Hugo is good for Marty.
Sheila texts that she has a crush on the editors of Dragon Tatoo. A victory she predicted btw.
Okay, now I’m starting to understand why JC Penny signed Ellen. Because she certainly doesn’t shop at JCP. But she works in the ads.
Up next for me, The Cameron Diaz haircut ?
Every time Brad Pitt gets a camera shot, Sheila sends me a giddy text: Can’t Get Over Brad Pitt. I respond with equally giddy text: OMG.
Was rooting for Melissa McCarthy, but happy for Octavia Spencer who took her moment.
Emma Stone is a movie star and awesome. She is so poised and funny. A delight.
Captain Von Trapp, edelweiss. And the purple tux is spectacular.
Hey , Billy C, stop making “old” jokes about Christopher Plummer. He looks younger than you! AND he just won an Oscar.
Text from Sheila: Chris Rock saves the show. Nice moment of spontaneity.
Text from Sheila: Ugh, Woody.
Best bunch of speeches: the film makers for live short action, documentary and animated short. LOVED you , people. No laundry lists of people to thank. Just some wonderful moments of genuine emotion.
Oh, no, Marty! Looks like the tide is turning towards The Artist. I thought the early wins might mean a Best Pic or Best Director win for The Scorsese.
That ad with the babies made me cry. Thanks, Johnson & Johnson.
Oprah! Lovin’ the gold dress and the tears. And, I really enjoyed your Oscar special with Jonah Hill. You should do an interview show. You’d be good at that.
Oh my gosh, Reese Witherspoon, I love the movie Overboard, too!
Teen son objects to Natalie Portman’s hair behind the ear. I agree.
Husband obejects to long personalized descriptions of Best Actor nominees. I agree.
30 -second clip of The Artist is enough for me.
How is it possible that Gary Oldman has never been nominated? Crazy.
Formidable is my favorite French word.
Brad Pitt is formidable. So is Colin Firth.
The Oscar for Best Speech: Meryl Streep
The Oscar for Biggest Dweeb Ever to win an Oscar: The producer of The Artist
