Oscars Recap

First of all, just wanted to shout out a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my husband, Scott.  Lots of love for you today - enjoy your day off from work!  Because it's your birthday, I almost feel bad to brag about once again dominating you in our annual Oscar Prediction Game.  Okay, I may have only one by two or three, but still....

Did you guys watch the Oscars?  Did anyone else find it weird that Natalie Portman kept referring to her fiance as "My Love"?  All I could think of was Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber saying, "Goodbye my LOOOOOVVVE."  And how awkward was Melissa Leo's acceptance speech?  Very. Although I was pleasantly surprised at how well Anne Hathaway and James Franco hosted.  I actually thought Anne was funnier than James, and I was definitely not expecting that.  So props to female funniness!  Although Scott and I both agreed Inception didn't get as much recognition as it deserved, I was happy to see most of the acting awards go to who they went to.  And now, my favorite part...the fashion.  Here were some of my favorites from the evening:

Mila Kunis - How pretty is that color on her? She looks like a Grecian Goddess.

Gwyneth Paltrow - I love that she went super structured and sleek instead of poufy and over the top.

Cate Blanchett - She might get a lot of criticism for this dress. It's a love it or hate it dress and I am in the "love it" category.

Hailee Steinfeld - I probably just mispelled her name, but it's okay becauase she looks amazing and has looked perfect at every red carpet this season.
Did you watch the oscars?  Who were some of your favorites?  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I love the Oscars! I'm sharing the treats I made for watching tomorrow, but my favoritemoments were the ending with all the kids and when Billy Crystal came out. I also loved Anne Hathaway's dress she wore down the red carpet best and Hailee Steinfeld - I wish so badly she had won instead of Melissa Leo. Eeek!
