The Oscar For Best Dressed Actress Goes To.....

Monday 11:11 AM, 28/02/2011
Melissa Leo wore a floral crochet/cut out short-sleeved Mark Bouwer gown...we don't love it really...but its not so horrible either... Everyone says Jennifer Lawrence was a knockout in this red Calvin Klein, we think she could've done more Amy Adams in blue sequinned L'Wren Scott. We love the dress but the jewelry was all wrong Cate Blanchett went all high fashion in this complicated textured dress from Givenchy's latest collection Jennifer Hudson was dramatic in this statement burnt orange Versace Gwyneth Paltrow, we loved! This metallic Calvin Klein is a perfect fit for her Natalie Portman was adorable mommy-to-be in this berry colored Rodarte dress Scarlett Johansson Dolce & Gabbana dress, in a similar color to Natalie's kind of kicked ass, but Scarlett's hair ruined it for her! We hated this vintage Charles James on Marisa Tomei. Its probably a lovely dress, just not on her! Sharon Stone was totally overdone. She looked like the evil queen from snow white in this goth-like dress with the huge bouffant hairdo Break out young star Hailee Steinfeld again was perfect for her age in this soft pink Marchesa princess dress. So pretty! We loved Michelle Williams in this Chanel gown, but we are bored with her in this color and style Florence Welch in a yellow tiered gown, we were not impressed either Mandy Moore went for this romantic look in Monique Lhullier, but if it wasn't for that bright lipstick, the color would have washed her out Russell Brand brought his mom and she looked hot in lace! Helen Bonham Carter wore this kind of fugly gown by costume designer Collen Atwood Celine Dion looked a little out-dated in a white long sleeve Armani Prive gown Hugh Jackman is so hot, what is he doing with frumpy and strange-looking Deborra-Lee Furness? It must be love! Hilary Swank nailed it on the red carpet as usual in this sparkly Gucci gown with the feather details Wow Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz on the red carpet together! She is one hot mamma just a month after giving birth! Of all the fab Christian Dior gowns out there, why did Nicole Kidman choose this one? We hate the hair too! Helen Mirren perfect as usual in Vivienne Westwood Yay Halle Berry is back! This Marchesa gown was hot hot hot on her! Camila Alves went for simple and but still high drama with the full skirt. We love this look for her Christian Bale's girlfriend Sandra Blazic is the perfect date as she looked elegant without upstaging him with her dress Sandra Bullock in Vera Wang, we don't know why, but we are not excited, although there is nothing wrong and she looks good! Reese Witherspoon having a sixties moment in black  Armani Prive Anne Hathaway in classic Valentino red. Gorgeous!
Maybe we were too excited about the Oscars and all the build up to the event, but we were kind of disappointed with the red carpet last night. We weren't totally amazed and blown away as usual! There was a great mixture of nudes, metallics, bright colors and strong black gowns, but nothing cutting edge or special. The girls who really stood out for us were, Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway and of course Mila Kunis, who had to be the night's best dressed...do you agree? Who did you love and hate?

The most memorable acceptance speeches so far!

Sunday 3:36 PM, 27/02/2011
Sally Field spent most of her allotted time on stage telling us she finally felt respected as an actor and how winning her second award felt better than her first. She finished her teary speech line, 'I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!?' The start of James Cameron's speech was nothing but normal. But for some reason James decided it would be a good idea to blurt out the line from his movie ?I?m the king of the world!? followed by a series of whoo-hoos. Plain awkward.. Adrien Brody took the podium by embracing chocked presenter Halle Berry and taking the freedom of planting a wet kiss on her lips! Needless to say both Berry and the audience were left speechless! The ledgend that is Marlon Brando decided that instead of taking the stage to accept his statue he sent up American Indian Rights activist, Sacheen Littlefeather, in his stead. Dressed in traditional Apache clothing, she refused the statue and instead lectured Hollywood on how Native Americans were portrayed in the entertainment industry. Greer Garson holds the longest Oscars speech to date! Another political acceptance speech is that of Michael Moore's. His speech was followed by equal amount of cheers and equal amount of boos. The main part of his speech focused on bashing then-President George W. Bush. Cuba Gooding Jr. will be remembered for one of the happiest winners! His thanks went out to god and his family and couldn't resist yelling, ?I love you? to everyone who had worked on the movie. He received a standing ovation by the crowd! 
Glen Hansard and co-star Markéta Irglová took the stage and both wanted to give their thanks. Unfortunately after Glen had finished his speech the music started and poor Markéta's speech was cut short. However, she did get a second chance as break host Jon Stewart brought her back on to stage. When Roberto Benigni won his award he decided that coming down the aile was not his thing, so instead climbed through the seated  audience?s chairs. As soon as he reached the stage he gave out cries and screams of joy, much like a child! During his infamously-odd speech, Benigni quoted poetry and thanked his parents for 'the biggest gift: poverty.' The best quote however is, 'I am not able to express all my gratitude because now, my body is in tumult because it is a colossal moment of joy. I would like to be Jupiter. And kidnap everybody and lie down in the firmament making love to everyone.' Huh?! Jack Palance is bas-ass! When he won his first award he dropped to the floor and did 4-5 push-ups! This was at the age of 73..!
Not only do actors have to give it their all in movies, with a hope and aim of being nominated and hopefully winning the golden statue. But they th...READ MORE ▶
