The show itself was trying hard -almost too hard to fix the diversity issue. Chris Rock did his best. It’s a hard thing to fix though. I wonder how much can change by next year? The roles need to be available to have more diverse actors. When you really think about it – how many films are all white actors? Too many. Moviemakers are predominately white and so is the academy. That has to change before the nominees will. I hope we are going in that direction.
Also powerful last night though was Lady Gaga’s moving performance of, ‘Til it Happens to You,’ a song about survivors of rape and was joined on stage by real survivors of sexual assault. Everyone was in tears after. Lady Gaga seems so humble and is massively talented. I like this girl more and more.
The actress awards went to the young ones last night and Best Supporting Actress Alicia Vikander looked lovely in yellow Louis Vuitton.
The Best Actress award went to Brie Larson.
It was remarkable how much these two women look alike. They even seemed to have the same hair.
My favorite looks of the night…
Loved Robin Robert’s gown. No idea who made it, but she always has great style.
Got to add charming Sly Stallone here with his wife Jennifer. I thought he was going to win!
Charlotte Rampling looked so chic. This dress had a beautiful trim and she had gorgeous red earrings.
Other looks to ponder…
Kerry Washington in Versace. Hair and makeup were beautiful. Just not sure I dig the dress.
This Andrew Gn dress wore Amy Poehler I think. It’s a work of art, but a little mumsey.
Even Ralph Lauren can make mistakes and this material made me think of trash bags! Kate Winslet deserved better.
Heidi Klum tried to show less skin this year, but not sure what this is. One side says award show the other mother-of-the-bride!
So what did you think of the show and the dresses? Let’s chat!
