The Academy Awards

Was anyone else as impressed by the Oscar’s last night as I was?  I typically read through awards shows and rarely make it very far into them without getting totally distracted but last night’s show was fantastic!  I loved, loved, loved the tributes that the former winners did for the Supporting Actress, Best Actress, Supporting Actor, and Best Actor.  Watching Anne Hathaway during her tribute was great!  She was moved to tears and you can bet this pregnant girl was crying also! 🙂

And it seemed like there were a lot more fashion “hits” than “misses” last night.  Maybe I just caught the good dresses but Penelope Cruz’s dress was fantastic.  And it was 60 years old!  I also loved Anne Hathaway’s red carpet dress.  She had changed by the time she did the intro with Hugh Jackman and that dress was pretty but her red carpet dress was stunning.  And Hugh Jackman!  He was funny!  His montage routines were really well choreographed and were funny.
Overall, I was very impressed! I still didn’t make it to the end of the show but that’s just because it started at 7:30 and I go to sleep rather early these days.  It was a nice change to be able to kind of escape back in time because last night’s show seemed to be sort of like what you think old Hollywood in the 50’s was like.  Respect for fellow actors.  Playful jokes.  No war protests that I heard.
Happy Monday!

    I enjoyed the Oscars last night, too. Go Slumdog Millionaire. I was so glad it won 8 academy awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.

    Saying a prayer for you and hoping your test went well today! Let me know! Thankfully I am feeling much better and more “normal” today! I have a sweet tooth, but that glucose drink is TOO MUCH for me!
