Marsala, the colour of the year. Now this is a sharp suit. With the waistcoat too. Proper. It’s Dolce & Gabbana. And so on point for how to show up at your first Oscars with a seat in front of Oprah Winfrey. They gave him a lot of camera time too. Which then gave us his tears in reaction to Common and John Legend’s performance and acceptance speech. Full Story

You have to appreciate the back here. Like I don't want to fight you. I want to convince you. I want you to see the brilliance of this dress. How it gives you what you want in the front, the body con, the contour, while giving me what I want when she turns around. Which is creativity. And design. Full Story

Ok not quite. And it definitely won't be next year for Fifty Shades Of Grey. But she's getting there. The negativity about the movie isn't about the direction. In fact, she's coming out looking pretty good. I've heard more and more actors are interested in working with her. And you heard Dakota Johnson last night right? They don't know what the sequels are going to look like right now because of the EL James drama and the longer this goes on the worse it gets for James because with these rumours and this alleged reputation, who's going to want to work on this now if nothing changes re: her control demands? My Obsession on the other hand, I don't worry about them. Full Story

Or, as they were inexplicably referred to during the call-up, Lonnie Lynn and John Stephens. Maybe your real name has to be on your Oscar?  I mean, what do you say? They had already won the night, and the award, with the performance of Glory which gets more intense and heartrending each time you hear it, instead of less. Full Story

Reese Witherspoon: The Oscar Crusader

Evidently Reese Witherspoon is this year's Oscar Kristen Bell. You remember when she and Dax Shepard took it upon themselves to go anti-pap for children's photos? There was a petition that was circulated. But at the same time their peers are selling baby photos to magazines. And others are calling paps when they happen to show up at out of the way toy stores. Full Story

Everything about the Best Picture win for Birdman was a little odd. I’m not one of those people who hated the film – in fact I thought it was great.  But the whole weird round-robin guyfest on the acceptance stage gave me a bit of a stomach ache. First of all, the ‘special guest' who was promised to present best picture was…Sean Penn? In our viewing before he came out, we were throwing around ideas like Stephen Hawking, or remembering when it was Michelle Obama a couple of years back. Full Story

Mindy Kaling: Best Oscar-defining Moment

Most of the Oscar defining moments I can think of that are not Oscar wins are fashion related. Nicole Kidman became a revelation in the green Dior. Michelle Williams made an announcement in the yellow Vera Wang.  Last night at the Vanity Fair party, Mindy Kaling made an announcement. She looks absolutely spectacular, but even though it’s a hot dress and great hair and makeup, it doesn’t feel like it’s about fashion. Full Story

There's a shot of Lupita Nyong'o and Jared Leto from last night taken from behind them. And they were hanging out at the Vanity Party too. And coming off their SAG heat a few weeks ago, that's what we want to see, right? Possibilities? Well. Full Story

A couple of friends individually told me this weekend that they thought the Oscars were lacking a certain excitement this year (they also told me collectively that it was too warm for the outfit I was wearing so what do they know). I wondered whether it was because there wasn’t a lot to be mad at. Full Story

McConaughey’s Oscar Marion

Matthew McConaughey was the only returning acting winner who did not walk the carpet at the Oscars last night. So I totally forgot about it. And was actually surprised to see him when he did come out to present Best Actress. Am trying to decide why they scheduled it that way. Some of you are really excited that they put the Best Actress category after the Best Actor category like it was more important, even though it was also the most obvious. Full Story

Oprah: Most Oprah Disapproval

O had some big smiles on last night, and why not, at first? She was going to see her film recognized for its achievements, even if the academy considered them perhaps smaller than she did, and frankly, she was going to go be Oprah in public, which is something she loves.   Everything was fine until Neil Patrick Harris made a crack about how Oprah is the equivalent of the box office revenue of American Sniper. Full Story
