Since I wasn’t the best at picking the Oscar winners, I think I’ll give it a shot at picking some of the best dressed stars at the 84th annual Academy Awards.
On another note, was anyone else wondering where Kate Winslet was?! She’s probably prepping for the rerelease of “Titanic” in 3D…I know I am!
I loved this dress! Just like everything else, it fit Cameron like a glove and her arms look like she has been lifting soup cans on overtime. Good choice girl!
*You can creep on Natalie Portman’s polka-dot dress in the background.
Meryl shined in gold…just like the Oscar statue she took home for “The Iron Lady” last night. When I saw this dress, I likened it to something a woman living in Rome during the Julius Caesar era would wear. It just works.
The well-deserved Best Supporting Actress winner sparkled in this beautiful dress. It’s versatile…you could wear this to da club or a classy event.
Oh Pharrell…he played the drums at the big show and I was all about it. I think the only thing that would have made his tux better was if he paired it with a trucker hat.
That’s all for me folks! What were your picks for best dressed last evening?
So the Nutty Professor is hosting the Oscars?
It was announced earlier this week that Eddie Murphy will be hosting the Oscars on February 26th. I’m going to say it, I’m not happy with this choice and I have a very good reason for it. Remember when Eddie impregnated Scary Spice and then denied that it was his baby!?
Let’s hop into our time machine…when a Dutch TV program asked Eddie about Mel B’s baby, Eddie grossly said, “I don’t know whose child that is until it comes out and has a blood test.” Oh yes Eddie, I remember and there is one thing you don’t do…F with a Spice Girl!
Brett Ratner and Don Mischer, the producers of the Academy Awards chose the Nutty Professor saying, “Eddie is a comedic genius, one of the greatest and most influential live performers ever…” and blah, blah, blah. Eddie of course, is thrilled to be hosting. “I am enormously honored to join the great list of past Academy Award hosts from Hope and Carson to Crystal, Martin and Goldberg, among others…” Murphy said.
Eddie – Hopefully this will get you out of the slump you’ve been in. Let’s be real, in 2006 you were nominated for an Oscar for your role in “Dream Girls” and you’ve been the voice of that donkey on “Shrek.” That’s all I’ve heard about. I’m going to speculate what the reason is for your waning movie career. Since the Spice Girls are the definition of girl power and you demeaned Scary Spice, you have ultimately demeaned every woman on the planet. You better do a good job hosting or the Spice fans will be waiting for you in the parking lot.
Lohan is back in the news…surprisingly it’s not Lindsay
You kids remember Lindsay Lohan’s little sister Ali, right? Well, the 17-year-old has caused quite the stir lately…because of her new face. Yea that’s right, she no longer looks like a member of the Lohan clan.
This year Ali signed a multi-year deal with NEXT Modeling and has decided that this is the career path she wants to take. Recently, new pics hit the interweb and if they didn’t tell me it was Ali, I would have never known who this random girl was. She looks like one of those girls on some ABC Family drama show.
Since Lil Lohan looks so different, Steve Honig (Lil Lohan’s rep) was forced to comment. According to People.com “Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it…During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer.”
Steve - I don’t think anyone believes you. Did Dina make you do this? If so, I understand. Also, could this be a ploy to get Ali back in the spotlight? Since Lindsay isn’t the breadwinner anymore, Dina needs someone to buy her new purses and shoes.
Bitch lost a tooth!?
Evan Rachel Wood is really on her way to becoming a star. Not like a Snooki or Paris kind of star, but an Academy Award kind of star.
While working/promoting her new film, “The Ides of March” in Venice, she decided to hop over to Paris and celebrate her birthday. I mean, who doesn’t do that on their bday? She must have put her party pants on because she was on the dance floor getting jiggy with it.
Wood describes the missing tooth incident as such, “I was with some friends and it was two hours after midnight and we were dancing. I just collided with someone’s elbow and I knew immediately that my teeth had been knocked out. Sure enough, I had this tooth pulled out,” she says, pointing to a front tooth. “I managed to laugh through it. I was quoting ‘The Hangover.”
I keep trying to imagine what dance moves the person who knocked the tooth out was dishing out. Maybe they bust out the elbow dance moves more in Europe than here in America. I’m just happy that Evan Rachel Wood didn’t try and deny that she was missing a tooth and tried to glue it in like Tara Reid did that one time. Yes Tara, I remember.
If you read this blog regularly, you probably know the top two stars that I would choose (or commit some extreme public act) to have dinner with: Britney Spears and/or Katie Holmes. Of course that’s not in any particular order! Since this is public knowledge, I’ve decided to branch out and choose some other famous individual.
When she rode that taxi onto “Dawson’s Creek” in 1998, little did we know what we were in store for. I always felt that Katie Holmes outshined Michelle during the Creek era. I was a fan of Michelle’s character, Jen Lindley, but Joey Potter was my role model. (Spoiler Alert!) They even f’ed Jen on the series finale and killed her off the show. But when the Creek was officially dried up and my world ended, the tables turned in Michelle’s favor.
At 30 years young, this lady has lead quite the life. Not only was she a main character on the best teen drama ever created, but she has also been in some important films. In 2005, Michelle transformed into Alma for her role in “Brokeback Mountain.” Behind the scenes Michelle met her baby daddy. Sadly, they mutually agreed to split up 3 years later.
2010 brought Williams into the spotlight of controversy with her starring role in “Blue Valentine.” While she earned herself a nomination for best actress, the film was originally released with an NC-17 rating! This decision was appealed and the movie was available to the masses as R-rated. Personally, I think Michelle should have won the Oscar (sorry Natalie). If you haven’t seen “Blue Valentine,” watch it and you will understand. It didn’t hurt that some of the scenes were filmed in Scranton, PA either!
As of right now, I’m really pumped to see Michelle take on the challenge of becoming the infamous Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming film “My Week with Marilyn.”
Why do I want to have dinner with Michelle:
She has been in show business since 1993 and has managed to keep a relatively low profile. How has that happened? I think this is the reason why she’s so intriguing.
Michelle chooses films that have an impact, you actually feel different when you leave the theater. She’s very selective with her films, but even more selective with her men. While I’m partial to Emma Stone and Mr. Gosling, I’d like Michelle to throw her hat into the Gosling ring!
One question I couldn’t leave without asking:
What was it like getting intimate with Joshua Jackson way back when on the Creek?
Where I would want to have dinner:
Since I’m in grad school and funds are a tad bit low, I would suggest maybe the Red Lobster. It’s always a classy choice and…CHEDDAR BISCUITS!
Michelle – get at me if you want to go to the Lobster…my treat! BTW this was my favises of all of your movies!
