She was sitting with Quentin Tarantino. And they shared bitchfaces as Basterds continued to lose. The amazing part is that the camera kept cutting away to them for almost every category. And Diane looked almost more choked than he did. Indeed, she’s been the most visible cast member for this movie. Full Story

Best Oscar black: Carey Mulligan

It was Prada and it was perfect. And the styling, the earrings, the clutch, her hair, it was perfect. Truth: am not feeling the shoes. The dress was so ornate, something simpler on the bottom seemed more appropriate. Having said that, they’re not totally objectionable upon closer inspection. And the thing about Carey, as Duana noted earlier, is that she was genuinely thrilled to be there. Full Story

Oscar Entitlement: Miley Cyrus

It’s the lack of humility that we’ve addressed so many times before. And on grand occasions like this it’s even more pronounced. They’ve raised her with such an alarming sense of entitlement. And of course, in this town, that sense of entitlement is oftentimes unearned. In front of a room full of people she should be aspiring to BE, she’s already fronting like she IS. Full Story

Worst Hair: Zac Efron

Did you see it from the back? There was a piece sticking up. And every woman on the carpet except for his handler wanted to smack him there and flatten that sh-t out. This is the problem with Zac Efron. The vanity. On the one hand he’s sweet and obliging and eager on the carpet. You know this is a kid who wants to work hard, is willing to walk that line without turning into a complete robot (oh hi Taylor Lautner), and who is smart enough to take good advice from good people. Full Story

Best Face in spite of Bad Dress: Penelope Cruz

Post by Duana I can accept that Penelope Cruz' dress is not great. And that she sticks to silhouettes that are saaaafe. She has a crazy body, but you'll never see her doing a Gyllenhaal. That's fine. Not everyone is to be loved for their avant-garde-ness or excellent choice in stylists. Full Story

Best White: Meryl Streep

Ms Streep killed it in a Balenciaga at the SAGs. Someone must be working with a stylist now? And the stylist delivered again for the Oscars. Meryl Streep in white – perfection. The hair – perfection. Her face – perfection. And virtually untouched. As you know however, when it comes to Meryl, it doesn’t matter what she wears. Full Story

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

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

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
