the Oscars – WTF?
As it is painfully obvious, I am no good judge of fashion. If anyone who was at the Oscars last night could see me on a normal day in my stripey sweater and jeans, they would probably go into cardiac arrest on the spot. But, like everyone else in the country, I got to be a fashion expert for 3.5 hours last night. All I can say is WTF?!? Everyone was wearing these one-shouldered dresses that look like someone sewed the dust ruffle from the grandmother’s bed onto a bunch of bandages.

Many of them were fishtail-shaped
which I don’t think looks good on anyone. Most of the dresses were either a non-color like beige-ish or almost-peach which made the wearers look totally washed out,
my least-favorite shade of blue (the shade plastic objects come in when there has to be an assortment of color choices)
or bright red.
The bright red was Ok, but it was very patriotic looking when the camera panned over the audience and you saw Red, white-ish hues and Blue. Plus, everyone was wearing this bright reddish orange lipstick that was kind of annoying, especially when paired with the non-color shades of blah.
Sarah Jessica Parker looked notoriously hideous:
So that’s my 2 cents on this year’s fashion. Now onto the movies…
Sandra Bullock won for Best Actress. really, come on. SANDRA BULLOCK? She beat Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep! I guess maybe she’s being rewarded for being in a serious movie for once (I didn’t actually see it; I can’t judge– it looked like a heartwarming sports movie and I avoid those like the plague), but still. She’s one of my least favorite actors. OK whatever.
Nothing else struck me particularly one way or the other, except for the fact that Bea Arthur was noticeably absent from the Look Who Died Last Year montage. Everyone has pointed out that she’s mostly been in TV and not in movies, but come on. Michael Jackson, though he was in a couple of movies (Captain) Eons ago, is not known for his acting career and he got recognized! Poor Bea. She was the awesomest. I’m going to have a Bea Arthur party.
