I didn’t think the show last night felt long. Don’t get me wrong, it was—but because of last night’s tight races and unpredictability, the time seemed to go by quickly, unlike other years where it’s just an eventuality for a win. That made Viola Davis Full Story

Like it was with Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Michelle Williams and Busy Phillips were underneath our etalk balcony position for a good amount of time last night ...fascinating. Danielle Graham and I could not get enough of the dynamic. Full Story

There were a number of people at the show last night (and one who wasn’t at the show. So much power to you, Natalie Portman), who knew they had absolutely no chance of winning.  None. Sometimes Oscar races are legitimate-ish races, and there’s more and less likely contenders, but this year the lineups in the acting categories were like baseball divisions the week before the postseason. Full Story

Good sweet LORD, Taraji P. Henson, you looked like something else last night. The dress and the hair and the sleepy-smoky eye makeup.
