Not a fan of the dress. It didn’t totally suck but... wasn’t crazy about the two piecey-ness of it. No matter. It’s not what she wore. It’s the makeup. Her makeup lately has been crazy good. So good some of you think she’s had her eyes done. Or something. Lucky was our makeup artist on Olympic Morning. Full Story

How cute was it when the Hurt Locker boys jumped all over each other when Tom Hanks called it out? SO cute. And while it’s Jeremy Renner who gets all the attention, you know for me it’s always been unfair that Anthony Mackie has been largely ignored. Renner gave the performance of a lifetime. Full Story

James Cameron cheated on Linda Hamilton with Suzy Amis during Titanic and eventually left home for her. Hamilton recently gave an amazingly candid interview about the dissolution of their marriage. Click here Full Story

Post By Duana The moment when she realized that it was really real. That she won and that she gets to hold that Oscar and replay the moment back in her head forever and ever no matter what happened in the future. That all her work was going to feel like it was worth it. She had that look on her face - like she was remembering in that very moment the passion she had for the project when she was working on it. Full Story

Worst Tribute: Matthew Broderick & Molly Ringwald

Post By Duana So OK. John Hughes was magic. And all these movies meant so much to us and gave us a place to belong and told us in so many words that we had to hang on to all the weird creepiness and awkwardness that made us who we are. All those things we resented that were different about us when we were young, he never pandered to us, never said 'you'll love those things', but reassured us that everyone goes through some sh*t and that we can be awesome adults. Full Story

Worst Giveaway: Ryan Reynolds

Post By Duana & Lainey This isn't actually a beef with Ryan Reynolds himself, who seemed to spend the entirety of the Red Carpet talking about what BFFs he and Sandra Bullock are, and how they have been for many years. But I did, a little bit, feel that with that sentiment so fresh in my mind, having Ryan brought out to introduce The Blind Side - doesn't it kind of give it away? A little? I actually really appreciate the genuine friendships that abound in the Kodak Theatre - at least, it seemed tonight, the ones associated with Sandra Bullock who could do no wrong. Full Story

Best Spontaneous Red Carpet: Gabourey Sidibe

Post By Duana She interrupted her interview with Ryan Seacrest to yell "HIII HONEYYYYY!" at Woody Harrelson. I COULD NOT LOVE HER MORE. She also said "If fashion was porn, this dress would be the money shot". Gabby is SELLING herself on the carpet and looking for that next job and showing that she can be someone other than Claireece Precious Jones. Full Story

Post by Duana & Lainey I sat down to write this and thought it was going to be a post about how much the dress made me cringe. Because honestly, after I got a good look at it, I thought it was a fun 'look-at-me' dress made of bubble wrap. Not joking. I didn't hate it so much as just. Full Story

Great Dress, Bad Form: Amanda Seyfried

March 8, 2010 07:19:38 Posted at March 8, 2010 07:19:38
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Post By Duana I know Lainey's mentioned Amanda Seyfried being maligned by her publicist at TIFF. That she wasn't allowed to say certain things or got criticized for mentioning certain things. This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but um, maybe it's for a reason. Watching her with Seacrest, he opens with "So you're leaving Big Love?" The correct answer here is "[My Character's] story came to an end" or "They were so good to let me have so much time off for projects but it got too hard" or even "It was just time to move on". Full Story

Worst Pouf: Zoe Saldana

Post By Duana My friend Lara and I have a phrase when we think we might be overdressing. We remind each other that "It's not the prom". Which is a nice reminder that you don't have to wear ALL of the things all of the time. But I recognize that the Oscars IS the prom. It is absolutely the most important day to wear the most outlandish or beautiful or crazy thing you can get away with, and know that there's literally no way to be overdressed. Full Story

Best Man Spanx: Gerard Butler

I noted on Twitter that Spittle was looking decidedly leaner last night. Almost svelte. Carb-free for the last week? Perhaps. Or the assistance of a little man spanx? This was what many of you have suggested. I agree. Picture Spittle in a nude coloured full body belly sucker. It’s kind of my favourite visual. Full Story

Post By DuanaSo much gold tonight. I mean, hilarious show gold in the form of Ben Stiller and others barely hiding their mock of James Cameron, and in Tina Fey reading action lines from the script of Up, but it's more about the dresses. And while Sandra Bullock’s may or may not have been your thing, it was. Full Story

Best Madonna accent: Tom Ford

I spoke to him at the Spirit Awards on Friday night. Of course I was secretly hoping for a rejection. Instead, he couldn’t have been lovelier. Like, really, really lovely. Very enthusiastic, great energy, gracious, and articulate. And the same affectation as Madonna. They are American. And they speak with this. Full Story

Longest on the carpet: Mimi walks so slow

March 8, 2010 06:19:30 Posted at March 8, 2010 06:19:30
Lainey Posted by Lainey

Mimi’s tits weren’t pouring out of her dress. Like, Michelle actually described it as “demure”. Shocking development. Had to lie down for a while to process it. Because two nights before at the Spirit Awards, Mimi pretty much stuffed herself into a short black number and as a result, we actually couldn’t breathe for her. Full Story
