I had grand plans to do a detailed best and worst dressed of the Oscars this week, but after sitting through the red carpet preview and then the show, only two people are worth mentioning.
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t watched the Oscars yet, read this later.
BEST: Jennifer Lawrence
She’s just a good ol Kentucky girl and there’s something so down-to-earth about her that I just love. She looked so elegant and flawless in this dress, and the fact that she tripped and fell going up the stairs to her acceptance speech just made me like her more. I only wish she would’ve spent more time planning her speech, because compared to Daniel Day Lewis’ acceptance speech, she just seemed young and immature. Hopefully she sticks around Hollywood and has many more chances to make a memorable speech.
WORST: Anne Hathaway
I know not everyone is fan of Anne Hathaway, but I personally think she’s (usually) a pretty classy girl. She’s also one of the few women who started out as a Disney kid and made the successful jump into more quality films. Or at least, more challenging roles. Still, even a fan such as myself couldn’t get over this dress. Within 30 seconds of seeing her I immediately noticed her chest and then hopped on Twitter to see if there was any chatter. Sure enough, Anne Hathaway’s nipples were the talk of the red carpet. They even had their own Twitter account. My only question is: How did no one notice this earlier? And why didn’t her stylist/handler/errand girl hand her some pasties STAT? I mean, it was so obvious that I can only assume it was intentional. But why? Haven’t we seen enough of Anne’s private parts?
I cringed when her name was announced for winning the Academy Award because I knew the theater lighting would do her no favors in the nipple region and if anyone skipped over the red carpet preview, they would FOR SURE notice them when she made her acceptance speech. Sigh. Sorry Anne, but without pasties, you have definitely won the award for worst dressed.
Other than that, everything else was pretty predictable. Seth Macfarlane was mildly offensive, Adele knocked it out of the park and now has an Oscar to add to her ridiculous awards collection, Quentin Tarantino made me unsure of whether or not I like him or just think he’s crazy, and the Academy made up for snubbing Ben Affleck for best director by giving his film the best movie award.
In other news, I neglected to post my weekly weigh-in last week but that’s probably because nothing really changed. By mid-week I was down 2 lbs, but by Sunday I was back up. This week was much of the same, but I was down 1 lbs on Sunday so we’ll go with that number, even though I ate like crap the rest of the day.
Week 8 (since I skipped week 7): -1 lbs lost
Total lbs lost: 8 lbs
Total lbs to go: 32 lbs
