Oscar Bro-down: RDJ & Jude Law

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 09:00:33 February 28, 2011 09:00:33

RDJ should host the Oscars. Some of you suggested he should host with Sandra Bullock. Yeah I could get down with that. Neither of them needs it though. And they might be too big for it anyway. But sometimes it’s too short, you know? Watching him for 3 minutes, how he always hits the right note – funny, a little acerbic, but also self-deprecating – it’s much too short. Full Story

Mila Kunis

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 08:36:07 February 28, 2011 08:36:07

Written by Duana So about that dress. I stared at it for a long time. Oddly, the thing that got me wasn’t the cut but the colour, I’m generally not a fan of anything in that kind of candy-fied, pastellish hue. Anyway, as the show went on I told Michelle “Well, I think the colour is actually what saves it from being tacky”. Full Story

Worst Oscar Hair: Reese Witherspoon

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 08:16:00 February 28, 2011 08:16:00

Jesus. Who made this call? The only, only, only positive here are the earrings. Everything else is an Elle Woods homage to Julia Roberts. But it’s the hair that’s really the crime here. The dress is for a hostess but it’s the hair that really fills me with rage. Obviously the homemaker aspect of it is offensive in itself, but also… the fact that it requires a hairpiece to pull off, one of those tacky ass accessories you can order off the tv – WHY is this happening to Reese Witherspoon? She doesn’t usually f-ck it up so badly. Full Story

Best Oscar ConCERN: Helena Bonham Carter

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 07:54:39 February 28, 2011 07:54:39

Written by Duana Helena Bonham Carter was pretty intent on not pulling the focus last night which is actually rather charming. She knew it wasn’t about her. Yet – somehow she still managed, in her all black ensemble, to catch my eye – she was concerned. Full Story

Oscar Charcoal: Helen Mirren

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 07:44:30 February 28, 2011 07:44:30

Duana and I just talked about Helen Mirren – she thinks it’s a big “samey”, she didn’t get “emotional” about this look the way she got emotional about Cate Blanchett’s. Didn’t we all get emotional about Cate Blanchett? We’ll get to Cate Blanchett later. Full Story

Oscar Breasts: Jennifer Hudson

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 07:11:01 February 28, 2011 07:11:01

I am predisposed to not like this material. I don’t like taffeta. Ever. Taffeta often comes in offensive colours. Always loud. Always really mall prom. It doesn’t scream style to me. It certainly isn’t fresh. And on Jennifer Hudson, with her new Weight Watchers body that gets shoved down our throats all the time, I feel like it was a total disservice. Full Story

Berry & Swank - Former Winners Wearing Metallic

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 07:00:25 February 28, 2011 07:00:25

Written by Duana Now look, now. If anyone other than Halle Berry had paid tribute to Lena Horne, would it mean that we were less aware of the struggles she had had and the triumphs she had made over the then-totally-biased industry in Hollywood? If I started to talk about this, I might not stop, so let me temper what I’m trying to say. Full Story

Oscar Failed Vintage: Marisa Tomei

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 06:32:00 February 28, 2011 06:32:00

Jessi Cruickshank reported on our etalk red carpet show that Marisa Tomei’s dress was some kind of 1950s gown that is so rare and so precious, they wouldn’t loan it to her so she had to buy it and it was tens of thousands of dollars, probably the only celebrity who had to do so last night. Full Story

Worst Hathaway Imitation: Mandy Moore

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 06:18:34 February 28, 2011 06:18:34

Written by Duana The first reaction everyone had to Mandy Moore tonight was that she looked severe and kind of angry. This is factual, and though the part in her hair and the weird eyebrow (that a lot of people had going) didn’t help, there was something else at hand, and it took me a minute to realize what. Full Story

Oscar Undecided: Melissa Leo

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 06:03:41 February 28, 2011 06:03:41

I can’t decide about Melissa Leo on Oscar night. With anything. Like, I don’t know if I like this dress. I know I don’t mind the high collar. I know I don’t mind the beading. But there’s also something decidedly low rent about it. Or that may be because the taste of her embarrassing ads is still lingering in my mouth. Full Story
