Were the Oscars a SNOOZEFEST this year, or was it just me? Seriously. Even the dresses didn't thrill me like they usually do. Still, I've mustered up a bit of WHAT WHAAAAAT for a few of my faves, and of course, some what da HAIL for a few others.
Hands down my favey fave of the night. Rose Byrne is Studio 54 fan-fucking-fabulous in Vivienne Westwood.
Stacy "The Elf" Keibler runs a close second. How could she not? She LOOKS like an Oscar statuette. That gold lame Marchesa is purrrr-fection.
Emma Stone sealed her place in my girl crush lexicon with her adorable performance with Ben Stiller. And is she actually ginormous, or is he really Tiny Dancer? Love her fuchsia chiffon be-ribboned frock.
Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen - she does not always knock it outta the park, but this dress is gasp-worthy on her.
I was originally going to put Gwyneth and Tom Ford in the Meh camp, but the more I looked at this, the more I loved it. It is completely striking and different from anything else, which I love, and I love that cuff she's wearing, dammit, so home-slice is in the Love column.
Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mischka looks gorgeous - it's the hair that keeps throwing me off. I LOATHE that color. From the neck down? She looks stunning.
I cannot STAND the way Michelle Williams usually dresses, so this Louis Vuitton is a nice change from the cutesy girlie stuff she usually does. I dig the tomato red on her.
DOES JANE SEYMORE EVER AGE?????
Angie Jo in Atelier Versace. Her hair and makeup were GORGEOUS, but two things - WHY DID SHE STAND LIKE THIS ALL NIGHT????, and would someone please PLEASE make her a sammich?
I was so on the fence about the Armani Prive gown that Ellie Klemper wore. I wanted to love it, but couldn't. I do LOVE the color, and that it matches her hair (though I wished her bangs weren't quiiiite so long), but something in the boob area is just a wee bit wonky, which drove me nutso. Ah well.
Natalie Portman in vintage Dior. Hear me now and believe me later when I tell you that at high school prom, Lynn Dutoit wore almost this exact same dress, except it was tea length and with a black crinoline underneath it, and it is possible that she also wore black lace fingerless gloves with it. No, no, wait - the black lace fingerless gloves were MINE. Still. The red and black polka dots were DEFINITELY Lynn's domain. I look at Natalie and expect to hear "I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight," at any moment.
Meryl, the entire world knows you are an amazing actress, so the Taylor Swifting you do when they call your name as the winner is just slightly disingenuous and COMPLETELY ANNOYING. STOP IT NOW. You are lucky that your acceptance speech made me tear up, although that could have also been because I was forced to look at your golden bathrobe and mother-of-the-bride hurrdo. Seriously, woman, there is no excuse for that.
and one more late entry to the THE HELL category?

Sooooo, who were YOUR faves? Least faves? Share. This is a safe place.
