Live Blogging the Oscars

9:32: Truly the most boring Oscars ever. So far the J-Lo nip slip is the high point. Oh, and the film from Iran winning, except I just read on Echo that the Iranian government just shut their film foundation down.

8:13: Uh-oh. Sandra Bullock has had work. Doesn’t look good. Damnit. It’s almost always a mistake. Well, maybe I’m wrong and it’s just a bad day, maybe just too much filler or botox. ABC seems to have monopolized the red carpet. I do not approve.

7:56: I love Penelope Cruz. I think she’s one of the most beautiful women alive. This dress is wonderful, but I don’t think her hair is a success. It makes her look kinda bald on one side.

7:10: I think it makes more sense to tweet instead of filling up this item.

7:08: Tim Gunn is on ABC. Oh Tim! I’ve missed you so!

7:00: Glenn Close looking absolutely smashing in green. A! Maze! Zing! And whoever this is in a white dress, looks gorgeous. First dress I covet. Octavia Spencer.

6:55: I don’t know who anyone is anymore! I haven’t seen hardly any of the nominated movies. I saw Bridesmaids (LOVED+++) and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (loved, lower case, no pluses).

6:53: Michelle Williams looks lovely as always. The thing about short hair though, it’s hard to make it look special and dressy. Somehow she doesn’t look dressed up or glammed up enough.

Okay, now I’m going to pay attention to the Oscars and the red carpet. Right now Ryan Seacrest is interviewing an actress with red hair. I don’t know who she is.

I bought these flowers for myself, to celebrate handing my book in. Pretty flowers, pretty cat, pretty day (yesterday).

  1. Aaahhh yellow tulips – always think of Jeanne with a smile when I see them – You are your mother’s daughter!

  2. Gorgeous flowers & you deserve them! My grand-niece picked me some buttercups today, made a flower arrangement in a vase. Yes, believe it or not, daffodils are blooming here in the South already!

    I watch the Oscars only half-heartedly; I’ve lost touch with many of new actors/actresses and usually only see new movies when they are available on Netflix. Sigh.
