The past year in film wasn't all that great. Sure, there were a few "whoa, did you see that?" moments, but over all, it was a pretty somber/lack luster year. Billy Crystal took the reigns as our evening's host, and to be honest, he wasn't anything to write home about. Sure, there were a couple laughs, but for the most part, I felt he was trying too hard to re-live his glory years, having hosted 9 times previously. It just seemed like he lost his edge (some of that has to do with the writers, as well, but c'mon). The night's magic really lies in its presenters, sketches and speeches.
Jean Dujardin in The Artist
Christopher Plummer in Beginners
Octavia Spencer in The Help
If you're looking for a host for next years Academy Awards look no further. Funny ladies rule!
The gracious acceptance speech of Christopher Plummer for Best Supporting Actor for Beginners proves Hollywood still has elements of class. His speech was incredibly sincere, gracious and full of charm.
Best After Party Gown
is beyond me. This deep red sequined
dress complete with a plunging neckline
by Zuhair Murad is phenomenal. It's rich
in color and full of detail. Beautiful.
Stacy Keibler, even if the material was different (can’t stand it) that awkwardly placed rose on your hip would still ruin it regardless. Her hair looked flat and I hated that her bag perfectly matched the Marchesa gown. It blew my mind how many people loved this dress. Bleck!!
