Prior to this disaster, the show was a bit bland except for the moment when Moana singer Auli’i Cravalho got whacked in the head by a dancer’s flag. Jimmy Kimmel was fine, but definitely not hilarious. As far as legends that we look forward to seeing on Oscar shows, they had Shirley MacLaine, and no other noticeable Hollywood royalty, except for Warren and Faye. Sadly, I believe they won’t be having seniors read the important categories anymore.
On the bright side it’s something else to talk about besides Trump for a bit.
I wish I had seen Moonlight, but I haven’t been able to. I think both Annette Benning in 20th Century Women, and Taraji P Hensen in Hidden Figures should have been nominated for Best Actress as they both deserved recognition, but were not.
As far as the Red Carpet it was also a bit lacking also this year. Some pretty looks, but not a whole lot of wow factor. I agree women can wear whatever makes them feel good, but most of these ladies pay a whole lot of money for stylists to choose what will look good on them and what to wear. Let’s see who got the most bang for their buck.
My top picks…
Viola Davis in Armani was winner of Best Supporting Actress and gave a lovely speech. She is a chameleon and has had so many different looks. Tonight she really was perfection with her hair, makeup and pretty earrings and clutch.
Naomi Harris played the mother in Moonlight and wore Calvin Klein. This is clean, classic and lovely and fresh.
Ruth Negga’s Victorian inspired Valentino was different and pretty. She also wore a blue ribbon in support of the ACLU as did many others. Loving is on my list of films to see.
Emma Stone had her Cinderella moment last night winning Best Actress and she was also the first winner to wear Givenchy since Audrey Hepburn. I loved everything about her look including the makeup and hair shown better in the Instagram by Rachel Goodwin her makeup person.
Jessica Biel’s Kaufman Franco gold sheath which was even prettier in person and her minimal hair and fabulous Tiffany necklace were the perfect complement.
With her husband Justin Timberlake who opened the show with a fun song and dance number. I’m not crazy about his hair right now.
Dakota Johnson in another Victorian trend gown. What do you think?
Halle has a great figure yet this dress seems to be something she’s done many times. The hair is a new look for her.
Some misses last night..
Love our Meryl, but I think she needs a stylist. I don’t think she does stylists or if she does needs a new one. She is so youthful and yet dresses frumpy. The hair and granny glasses could use a little update. I wonder what Chanel dress Karl had planned for her was. Who knows what happened with that whole fiasco, but he is a temperamental guy I’ve heard.
