For the third year in a row, Ms. S&C is live blogging the Academy Awards. Yes, e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e else is doing it too. (Twitter has been abuzz with the latest updates for days now.) And no, she doesn’t have any special insider information. She is just like you. She is sitting on her couch, in ripped jeans and a tank top, drinking red wine from a box. And she can’t wait for James Franco.
Ms. S&C is live blogging the Oscars, along with everyone else.
Here we go:
Love that Kelly Osbourne just called Helen Mirren’s body “bangin.”
I think I like Scarlett Johansson’s dress. The color and the lace overlay and the messy hair are a little unexpected.
The best decision Gwyneth Paltrow could have made (at this stage of her career) was appearing on Glee (plus, she looks great tonight in that slim silvery number).
Cate Blanchett is in an unusual lavender dress. She was described by someone as a “work of art.” And I couldn’t agree more. She is absolutely gorgeous (I love the short hair) and like a breath of fresh air.
Wow, a lot of red: Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Lawrence, Penelope Cruz, Anne Hathaway. I wish I liked red more.
That ABC backstage interview with James Franco could have gone better, right?
Commercial break: Ms. S&C saw eight of the ten movies nominated for Best Picture, and she wants “The King’s Speech” to win (again, along with everyone else on the planet who has seen it).
Correction: Jennifer Hudson’s dress is apparently “tangerine,” not red. Thank you, Tim Gunn.
Loved the question by Robin Roberts, of GMA, to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban about what music they listened to on the way over. Unfortunately, the only answer we got was “mellow.”
Did you know that Melissa Leo from “The Fighter” is also John Goodman’s wife on “Treme”? She looks so different. And by different, we mean better.
Commercial break: Check out the S&C Twitter page too because we are retweeting commentary that is much better than ours. #humbled
Yay! Love an Alec Baldwin cameo anytime, anywhere.
