I actually watched the Academy Awards last night, on a whim, for the first time in years. Hence the belated posting since it would have been too laboured to multi-task posting about the red carpet while watching the live stream. However, I don’t have much of an opinion on the red carpet or the ceremony since it was good but tepid. Aside from a contrived stunt from Sacha Baron Cohen, not too much happened on the red carpet. People arrived in 20s-theme, art deco, and jewel tones. Meaning, again, everyone wore the same outfit. There were some stand-outs: Michelle Williams in red Louis Vuitton, Angelina Jolie’s bones in black Atelier Versace, GOOP in white Tom Ford. Billy Crystal hosted and did the job without incident and without boring anyone. Jolie hosted with her legs apart and her bones thrust towards the camera while doing her best phone sex voice (and WTF with her boney arms???). Neither Brad Pitt nor George Clooney won Best Actor. Good. And everyone French won ALL THE AWARDS. Below are the carpet highlights, since editing photos of the shrapnel would rob me of the will to live.
