You don’t often get to see a lot of the non-nominated. You see a lot of the sound-editing types, who are nervous but self-aware enough to know that nobody cares, and you get the occasional shot of Jack Nicholson, but as discussed elsewhere on this blog today, Jack Nicholson is his own man, and can’t be compared to anyone. Full Story

I share with Lainey the trait of being an Anne Hathaway apologist. So each individual thing about her last night was, you know, not the best, but not horrible.   Not terrible, at least at first. The dress. She will regret this sooner than later, but for a long time. Because this is not the dress to win your first Oscar in, I don’t think. Full Story

Chris Evans took his ma to the Oscars. To remind himself that it’s a big deal: "She's so excited. It's nice to remember how exciting and fun this stuff can be. Being with her brings all that back." (Source Full Story

There was a tie at the Oscars last night, so why not a tie here, for Best Dressed? Both were great, but we each liked one more than the other. So instead of fighting about it, and inspired by the awards show, we decided to share. Duana’s Best Dressed Overall: Naomi Watts She gets it. Naomi Watts gets the crown. Full Story

Did you love this? The only person I saw who loved this was the Oscar PR girl on Twitter, and um, she has a vested interest. Not only has this dress been DONE – on Penelope Cruz, on J. Lo, on Tina Fey -- but in this washed out colour, I’m just not interested. I didn’t think it looked princessy and wonderful, I thought it looked dour, draggy-down, and boring. Full Story

About a month ago I wrote a post called “Forecasting Britney”: signs to look for, now that she’s single again, that… you know. An astute reader wrote in immediately after positing that: All that, plus if she goes brown, we are in trouble. Well… Here’s Britney at the Elton John Oscar party last night and she’s brown. Full Story

Jessica Chastain, I’ve decided, had the best Oscar night of anyone. Think about it. She wears the best dress she’s worn in two or three years, a delicate light copper with her medium copper hair and she looked spectacular. And she KNEW it, because she showed up on the carpet kind of the first minute she could. Full Story

Was it the best performance of the five? Probably not, right? I have personal attachment to Emmanuelle Riva because, well, Amour is my personal nightmare. My parents are Amour. Many of you thought it was Chastain’s Maya in Zero Dark Thirty. Still others identified with Naomi’s courageous mother in The Impossible. Full Story

I’ve been writing about Adele for weeks. You bored ? No, not like “U Mad?” Try it again, in an Adele accent.  “Y’booohd??” and make sure you put three separate notes in it.   Now, see?  You can’t not laugh.  You can’t not smile. Full Story

Just – look at this. Watch it all the way through.  Don’t make the mistake I did, which is laugh so hard that you close your eyes to keep the tears from escaping, because you will miss the good stuff. Some of which is cute, a la Amy Poehler and Patricia Clarkson, and some of which is flat out hysterical. Full Story

She was the silent producer. If they allowed four people up there, she should have been included. And we all know how much work she did. Because while she may not have been responsible for the filmmaking, Oscar is often more about how the film is presented, and less about how the film actually plays. Full Story
