I just came in to say - my god, Angelina Jolie is insanely beautiful. (Yeah, yeah, she's skinny, but if you look at pics of her throughout the years, she's always been rail-thin). There are many attractive actresses but she is really in a class by herself. Dunno if it's love but she was so smiley & glowing...lol I had a total girl-crush going. I also thought she easily had the best dress of the night. :nod
As to Esperanza Spaulding, she really did do a beautiful job with that song, but that hair:eek I just couldn't stop staring at it & wondering if she & Diana Ross had a Big Hair contest, who would win.:laugh
Well for my money, my girl Gwenyth Paltrow's dress put all of 'em to shame. So polished, classy and sophisticated in that white dress with the matching duster coat. A close second was JLo and Viola Davis. Most of the rest were just meh...don't even get me started on Meryl's dress...lol, what was that thing? She looked like a big, overgrown version of the Oscar...terrible.
On a side note: I fell asleep and missed most of the show. Did Gary Oldman win the Oscar for his category? He's been deserving of an Oscar for years.
I agree about Gwenyth Paltrow, Viola Davis, & Meryl Streep, but I didn't care for J Lo's at all.
I just don't care for the whole "let's see how close I can get to exposing myself" type of tops & dresses. That's not sexy, that's desperation. She can look gorgeous & sexy without that.
I saw that Sean Combs was involved with that documentary. I still think that whole thing with the camera on him while his assistant "de-linted" him was unintentionally hilarious. It doesn't surprise me that he came in after and took credit for everything. I think the phrase "douche canoe" was invented for him.
In every picture I saw of Angelina Jolie, so had her hip cocked and her leg sticking out. It's like that was the only pose for that dress! I like her, but I really thought she needed some powder, especially on her forehead. On the plus side, her bare leg has already become a meme: Angelina Jolie's Right Leg: Behold the Five Greatest Photo Manips of Oscar's Breakout Star - Red Carpet | E!Online
Apparently, Sean Young was arrested last night at the Governor's Ball. I'd like to say that I'm shocked, but I'm really not: http://www.tmz.com/2012/02/27/sean-y...overnors-ball/
She was told to leave because she didn't have a ticket, so she slapped a security guard. That sounds about right.
Did anyone see the pics of Sherri Shepherd from last night in that dress with the deep neckline......and her big old bra showing? :ohno
The more pictures I saw of Viola Davis's dress, the less I liked it. On E! the color looked darker and more intense, but every other picture I've seen makes it look like a light Kelly green. Meh. I didn't like the bodice either. She's worn much better dresses this awards season.
I think Mila Jovovich wore my favorite dress of the night. It was spectacular. Plus, her hair and makeup and jewelry were perfect.
I liked Gwyneth's dress and jewelry, but the cape thing was weird and I hated her hair. She should have just left it down and let it fall straight down her back instead of that funky ponytail.
I do plan on seeing the Descendants and The Artist is very intriguing.
As for Meryl's dress. I guess she figures she is such a great actress that she doesn't need to look good, I suppose that is kind of true.
I feel so bad for Sean Young, tho. Hasn't she done this before at another Oscar bash? I know it seems that folks get popular by behaving badly, but sadly, her ship has sailed.
