I was oblivious through most of the awards (too much yummy curry dip and sake-tinis) but this, for me, was the best moment of the evening:
She won me over with her big Forest Whitaker hug (I wouldn't have let go), and I thought she was the overall winner for best dress, hair, and make-up. And cuteness.
Side note: what was with all the red? Oscar fashions have gotten so boring. Everyone wears safe black, everyone tries to channel Old Hollywood. I miss a good Cher-Bob Mackie WTF? But, just when you think it's one boring black (or red) dress after another, out comes Diablo Cody with her leopard Dior and red lips to shake up the joint. I don't love the dress when she is standing but when she walked it was so pretty. She is made of awesome:
The more I see Cate Blanchett's Dries Van Noten dress, the more I love it. I adore the jeweled, necklace-y neckline and deep eggplant color. You really need to see it up close to get the full effect which probably made it the wrong choice for the Oscars:
I also loved Tilda Swinton's cheeky speech (though hated the dress) and Nicole Kidman's sparkly (1399 carat), dangly necklace designed by L'Wren Scott. Fabu.u.lous. But her hair? Atrocious.
How about you?
