The 84th Annual Academy Awards Recap
And I think most everyone in the room and in their living rooms agreed it was a good choice. Who doesn't enjoy Crystal's clever little Oscar song, which gently pokes fun at the nominations, offends no one, and uses tunes in the public domain.
The Help, and then walk in on the bathroom scene from Bridesmaids. I also loved him in the Tintin wig.
When you're reading, responding, tweeting and facebook posting during the Red Carpet and Awards, there's never a dull moment:
At first I couldn't hear it, cause my TV is 20 years-old, but eventually it got so bad even my ancient speakers picked up a terrible white noise and reverb. What was that all about!?!
I don't feel we get to see enough celebs on the red carpet. Every news outlet and red carpet host interviews the same few people. So, out of the slim choices, I chose for my BEST DRESSED:
"Thank you Academy for putting me with the hottest guy in the room," she said, referring to the golden Oscar statuette.
Fighting back tears and thanking her family and fellow cast members, she said, "I'm wrapping up, I'm sorry, I am freaking out. Thank you world."
Streep's Oscar Speech
Although I only found The Artist to be a pleasantly amusing film. I do agree with actor James Cromwell's assessment regarding its win:
What I think it says to a lot of filmmakers is you don't have to make conventional Hollywood films. You can make something off-beat. You know if they had tried to sell that film in Hollywood - a silent, black and white film, with nobody in it that anyone knew; they wouldn't have gotten passed the secretary. But this allows young filmmakers to know that they can create out of their vision and out of their artistry, and it will be accepted by people because we connect to stories, that's how we recognize each other. - interview on Live with Kelly Post-Oscar partyHere's the complete list of Oscar nominated Winners
