…not Anne Hathaway and James Franco. I mean, for those who watched, Franco seemed quite stoned, no?
All day yesterday, I was looking forward to watching the Oscars, and despite the shaky performances given by hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco, I wasn’t disappointed.
I was rooting for Natalie Portman and Colin Firth (Best Actress, Best Actor) and for “The King’s Speech” (Best Picture) and they all pulled through (yay!). Although “Black Swan” was just a little too freaky for me, I thought Natalie Portman was fabulous–she really can’t go wrong. Plus, her acceptance speech was truly touching. Catch a glimpse here. I only just saw “The King’s Speech” this past weekend, but it was definitely worth all of the praise it was given. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch the trailer. It will give you goosebumps, literally!
In other news, I won my Oscar ballot! I was only competing against one other person (Josh), but I never win anything. Seriously. I had 13 correct picks out of a possible 24 (not that great), but it still won me some much-deserved bragging rights. MUAHAHA.
And of course, my picks for best dressed: Halle Berry and Mila Kunis. Simply stunning.
Catch a complete review of the show from the Chicago Tribune here. They were pretty spot-on, in my opinion.
And just for kicks, check out my Oscar treat. Yes, I ate more than one. Oops.
