No Envelope needed:
Charlize Theron in Dior.
Frankly, I’d be okay stopping right there—but, in the interest of commentary–Onward.
It makes me want to re-think my extensions. My last ‘pixie’ cut was in 1967. I was six.
Please–Stop doing math.
Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, American Dad) took the helm as this year’s Award Show Host replacing Billy Crystal who ostensibly made some off colour racist remarks at last year’s award show—admittedly, didn’t watch.
Mr. Crystal would have had a a ‘field day’ with the material ‘presented’ at this year’s show.
As for Seth….well, he seemed a bit ‘UNANIMATED?’—-I would have preferred ‘Brian’ the dog.
and, Argo–well it’s not just a cornstarch anymore…
You know who I feel bad For?
(I mean, so what if Affleck’s a jerk—this has to burn.)
Overall, a very unsurprising Evening—save for confirmation that there is absolutely no decorum left in the White House.
Surprise? Well, not really.
I mean–sure–the Kennedy’s loved to wallow with the Glitter Litter…..
However, somehow having ‘First Lady’ (You can dress her up, but you can’t take her out’) Michele Obama join Jack Nicholson via live feed to announce the Winner of the award for 2013’s Best Picture…well, let’s just say that as the line between Church and State may have blurred a bit over the past few years– it might do some good to reinforce a few other boundaries, too.
Please? Pretty Please with steak and arugula on top? (not my choice, either, Michele—but it’s hard to maintain your apparently size 14 figure on a meal of rocket salad…so I’ll meet you at Steak and Shake girlfriend). What’s next? HRH Queen Elizabeth II presenting the BAFTAS? I’m sure that The Duke of Edinburgh could supply a few quotable quips.
You know Barak, you might want to tamp this one down a little….if you aren’t too busy getting pointers on….your ‘Swing(?)’ from Tiger. (Pun Intended)
Daniel Day Lewis unsurprisingly took Oscar for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln. Joaquin visibly shrugged off his nomination only too well aware that while his performance in ‘The Master’ may have been the Most riveting of his career, he didn’t stand a chance in Hell of getting the statuette for it. Sad, but true. Tough crowd.
Of Note: Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence also wore Dior. Just not as well, but she has time on her side.
Personally, I like her more since she almost tumbled (again) on her face while ascending the stairs en route to the stage for her acceptance of her Best Actress Award. Predictions? Well, I’m seeing a stint (or is that splint) in traction in her Future. Perhaps she (and I) should consider flats as an option.
