Sometimes, when a look is so good, I feel violent. Like I want to whip around a room smashing things to properly express how f-cking rad an outfit is. Because a fist pump just doesn’t seem like it’s enough, you know?  This is what happened when I saw Kerry Washington show up at the Vanity Fair Oscar party and I knew, I knew it had to be the Outfit of the Week but it also took a lot of patience not to write about it until now when we do the OOTW posts. Full Story

There were three joyous things about this awards season: 1) it was short. I know this was hard on the nominees/participants, but for everyone else the brevity was a bonus; 2) Bong Joon-ho and Parasite are the feel-good entertainment story of the year. It’s so fun and wonderful when the Best Picture actually is the best picture, and when someone as kind and thoughtful as Bong is rewarded; and 3) there was lots and lots Taika Waititi. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

For the last few weeks, we’ve all been thirsting for the least thirsty person – which is probably why we can’t get enough of her.  You know who I’m talking about: it’s Sharon Choi, the filmmaker and interpreter who’s been showing the sh-t of her work this award season alongside Bong Joon-ho during Parasite’s Oscar-winning run.  Read Full Intro

When it was announced that Saoirse Ronan was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Little Women and that Timothee Chalamet would be presenting, the corner of the internet that lights up for their friendship (Joanna is one of them) was expecting that there’d be at least a shot of them together on Sunday night. Full Story

I came across an outlet that had Sandra Oh on their Worst Dressed List because it was “too much”. Um, in what f-cking world?! Her golden peach Elie Saab dress to the Oscars proper was, quite simply, her best red carpet outfit Of All Time. And yes, I had the luxury of seeing it in person so maybe my appreciation of it is more enhanced than yours because I could see how she moved in it, how comfortable she was, so comfortable, so light, it looked like she was gliding down the red carpet. Full Story

Last year, at the Emmy Awards, Lainey and I made the difficult decision to retire Zendaya from competition in any sort of fashion capacity. It was this epic green dress that did it, but to be honest, she’d been problematically excellent for some time, and we risked a can’t-be-caught situation at every event, kind of like this year’s acting categories. Full Story

This is going to hurt.  Well, for me. It’s going to hurt me.  I am, of course, a huge fan of Saoirse Ronan. I think she’s skillful, clever, and nuanced as an actress, and I like watching her play the red carpet game. I’m just going to come out and say it – I think she knows she’s smarter than half the people she’s talking to, but she has fun with it instead of stewing in her own juices like some Best Actors I could mention. Full Story

Margot Robbie: Oscars Worst Dressed (Lainey)

There’s nothing wrong, really, with Margot Robbie’s Oscar 2020 dress. It’s fine. It’s black. It’s strapless. There’s chiffon wrapped around her forearms leaving a trail down the length of her body. And I suppose that’s a pretty-ish effect, but also not really all that special?  And that’s been the great mystery (at least to me) about her partnership with Chanel. Full Story
