While we pretend there is nothing exciting coming up otherwise...

... let me tell you about the Oscars. First off, I am so happy Philip Seymour Hoffman won. It's the least they could've done for me to make the staying up late worth while. Ever since "Tommy, Tommy, Tommy..." I am just smitten with that guy's acting personalities. I suppose it also has something to do with his - for Hollywood standards - non-traditional looks.

Also, pretty cool that George Clooney won for best supporting actor. Lincoln and I both agreed he exudes so much charm, that even if he robbed you on the spot and flashed his boyish grin, you'd wanna give him a hug and say: "Oh, nevermind, I don't really need any money. Just go and buy yourself something for that pretty little house in Italy!"

Reese Witherspoon... looked lovely, although for me there is always Tracy Flick coming through when I hear her speak. I just can't shake that feeling that she is an ambitious busy-body of steel all wrapped up in gorgeous southern package. I don't know much about Rachel Weisz, nor her winning role, but her hair was beautiful and classy and made me ache for long flowing hair.

I think Charlize Theron is very pretty and usually dresses well, but I don't know what was up with that bow. A bow on a dress is never a good idea. I don't know what occasion or what spot on a dress would warrant a bow of any size, but that thing on her shoulder... yikes. Salma Hayek on the other hand, looked perfect in my opinion. I loved her dress and the blue with the dark hair... ah, awesome. I know her bosoms are a little out there, but still, everything fits just right and it looks very natural. I am totally going to look like Salma Hayek when I grow up. (Of course now I can't find a pictures showing her entire dress. Crap.)

Did anyone watch it? Tell me about it, while I go and do some jumping jacks...

P.s. Oh and Crash? Whatever.

Yep, I watched. I'm so glad I can do some Oscar chatting. ;)

I was thrilled to pieces for Philip S. Hoffman and I loved his acceptance speech. I was disappointed that Paul Giamatti didn't win best supporting actor for Cinderella Man though.

I agree with you on Salma. She always looks stunning. I had the same reaction to Charlize's bow. lol I was also glad they finally honored Robert Altman. Nashville is still one of my all-time favorite films.

I was so glad Reese won. She's pretty and charming and has beautiful kids and seems down-to-earth and ALWAYS looks classy at formal events. LOL, I know those are no good reasons to win an Oscar--heck, I didn't even see Walk the Line yet (but I want to). I'm just happy for her when she succeeds and I wish there were more girls like her in Hollywood (I guess I like to try and identify with her somewhat...our daughters are close in age and I think her son Deacon is between my two boys' ages.)

Did you notice that nearly everyone seemed to be wearing a version of white/off-white/cream/gold or black? How boring is that? Jennifer Lopez' dress for that reason stood out, but she seemed to have some funky tan problem:

I pretty much only watched to see the dresses, hear the speeches. My hubby watched with me. We were both appalled at the winner of the Best Original Song, "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp." How can they even call that a song? There was hardly any singing throughout. Not to mention it was skanky!
