My Thoughts on the Oscars

I.LOVE.THE.OSCARS.

I watched the whole red carpet. (I may have DVRed it, and watched it again.)

I stayed up for every second. (And for this gal who has been falling asleep between 7 and 8pm for the last two weeks, this was a big deal!)

This was one of my favorite Oscars to watch. I know others were not as found of it, but I really enjoyed it. It might be because I think Ellen can do no wrong…

I also love all the glamor and glitz of the evening.

Here are some of my thoughts as the night went on.

  • I absolutely loved the dresses that Sally Fields, Pink, Lupita Nyong, and Jennifer Lawrence wore. I would put them on in a heartbeat.
  • I have two dream jobs. One is to be one of the escort women on stage who just stand there in beautiful gowns. I love wearing fancy ball gowns and to do so without a script or much spotlight, absolutely. My other dream is to be a seat filler when stars go to the bathroom or where ever they may run off to. How cool would that be?
  • “Happy” by Pharrell was my favorite performance. I love that people got up and danced.
  • I am going to say it and probably be crucified because of it, but I don’t see what the hype is about “Let it Go.”
  • I think they should give more time to group winners. The second person to the mic always gets screwed because the first person took so much time! I always feel bad for them.
  • This is the first year I have seen none of the films that were nominated for the big awards…I blame it on the morning sickness. I will be remedying that soon since they all currently are saved on Netflix.
  • Lupita Nyong’s acceptance speech was absolutely my favorite speech. It was so genuine and full of emotion. It made me cry it was so beautiful.
  • I also loved watching McQueen react to winning Best Picture for “12 Years a Slave.” I love when people aren’t too pompous about winning. He was just so perfectly excited.
  • Ellen giving out pizza had to be the best thing. I really loved how she interacted with the audience, but watching the stars scarf down pizza in their fancy wear was just delightful.

Someday I am going to host Oscar parties at my house and do ballots, dresses, and the whole shabang. It is going to be awesome.

Also, I am guest posting today for Elizabeth over at Army Ever After! You should check her out!

What were you favorite parts of the Oscars?

Did you have a favorite outfit?

  1. I LOVED the Oscars this year…..Ellen was just amazing as always–I love that she handed out pizza and taking a selfie with the stars was pretty much my favorite part of the night!

  2. I admit it, I DVRed the red carpet and awards so that I could go back and rewatch it as well. I don’t think there was one person who missed the mark on dresses this year, and I absolutely loved that the men wore colored jackets! I hope Ellen returns next year to host again because she was absolutely amazing.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
