Oscars!

8e29121596fdd2b8339dc7d41dfb5c55With an award show full of outstanding musical numbers you would think the evening would be more memorable. Nothing host Seth MacFarlane did was entertaining, although he did get called for for being racist, sexist and cruel, but he did prove that he has a killer voice.

There were good intentions put in to this broadcast, and the musical numbers were good but it was exactly what the creator of Ted and Family Guy would have done. Throwing in random performances and people to appear with it (Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe singing and dancing was awesome) but the Oscars really just showed that there are amazing women singers – Babs, Hudson, Adele – Hollywood can laugh at itself and guys like to see boobs in movies.

The most interesting moments of the night are always the heart wrenching speeches, often cut short because we needed to see more of MacFarlanes promotions for a movie that came out last summer.

Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway and Daniel Day-Lewis took home their awards with gracious and humbled speeches. While in a shock Christolph Waltz snagged his second Oscar for his amazing turn as a bounty hunter for Quentin Taratinos Django Unchained. Tarantino also took home the trophy for Best Original Screenplay, although this one wasn’t his best.

The fashion at the Oscars was incredible. If Naomi Watts had won, that dress would have been insane upon that stage, the Armani Privy gown, same designer as fellow nominee Jessica Chastain, was unique, beautiful and interesting. She has best dressed of the night in my eyes. Worst dressed by far was Melissa McCarthy, the hair was horrendous and the dress was boxy and shapeless, she is was too good to look that bad.
