Here is my 2-cents worth on some of the movies and dresses that were flying around in Oscar-land.
Crash – loved it. A character-driven storyline that shows people have both bad/ignorant sides to them as well as good/kind. Hopefully, in life’s journey, we manage to grow the good side. If you haven’t, go see it.
The Constant Gardner – loved it too. This movie was nothing at all like I expected. It was intense and political, yet an endearing love story. Rachel Weisz did a fabulous job in the role as Tess. Rachel is such a cutie. I also recommend to see this one if you haven’t.
March of the Penguins - Tagline: “In the harshest place on Earth, love finds a way.” Combine that with my love of animals and need I say more? Don’t just see it, buy it.
Capote – I haven’t seen this one yet, but I’m dying to. I heard Philip Seymour Hoffman, who plays Truman Capote, was incredible (hence, the Oscar). Apparently he lived in character 24 hours a day while filming and had trouble coming out of it. Did you see this? Do you recommend it?
Walk the Line – Haven’t seen this one either. But, I love Reese, so I’ll probably love the movie. I also love Johnny Cash.
Okay, now let’s move on to the really important Oscar discussion: FASHION. Did you notice all the dresses seemed to be either blue, butter-colored, or metallic/grey/beige??
Reese Witherspoon. Outstanding. Nuff said.
Penelope Cruz in her strapless butter-colored dress.
Beyonce. Classic black strapless. Gorgeous and classy.
Not so much:
Kathy Griffin. What is that, green Xmas wrapping?
Melanie Griffith. There’s got to be a cutoff age for gravity defying (not) metallic dresses.
Cate Blanchett. More butter-color. This time in the shape of a toga.
Hilary Swank. Nice dress, but it looks like she had it on backwards.
Charlize Theron – what was she thinking? A puffy balloony thing on one shoulder?? Hmm, what could she be hiding in there?
