Oscar Review 2012

If you didn’t see the Oscar’s this year, you didn’t really miss anything. Billy Crystal was predictable and why is he looking more and more like my aunt Shirley with each passing year?

Dear Academy, Please ask Chris Rock or anyone else who is young and funny and has a little bit of an edge to host next year. Thanks. Love, Dre.

If you haven’t heard who the big winners were, here’s a recap of the major awards.

Best Picture went to The Artist. This was disappointing for me. Although I liked The Artist when I saw it, it didn’t blow me away by any stretch. My pick for best picture would have gone to Hugo, with Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, or the Descendants as my next picks over The Artist.

Actor in a leading role went to Jean Dujardin for The Artist. Eye roll.

Actress in a leading role went to Meryl Streep for Iron Lady even though all the hype was about Viola Davis winning for The Help. Viola Davis did give an amazing Oscar worthy performance, as did Glenn Close, and Michelle Williams who were the other nominees in this category, but when I saw Iron Lady, I remember saying “No one will be able to top that performance.” No one did. I was happy to see her win.

Actor in a supporting role went to Christopher Plummer for his role in Beginners. If you haven’t seen this movie, and you’ve been reading my blog, then you already know I LOVED that movie. I was thrilled to see him win.

Actress in a supporting role went to Octavia Spencer for The Help.

Hugo, another favorite of mine, took the Oscar for Cinematography and Art Direction.

One fun surprise of the evening was when Bret from Flight of the Conchords won an Oscar too! Music (Original Song) went to Bret McKenzie, for his song Man or Muppet. He’s adorable. I love him!

Finally the most important awards of the night in my opinion go to the writers, without which there would be no Oscars to begin with! Writing for Adapted Screenplay went to Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash for The Descendants. Writing for Original Screenplay went to Woody Allen for his brilliant screenplay, Midnight in Paris. For a full list of winners click here.

Now for the Fashion. My Best Dressed List:

Michelle Williams was just lovely in Louis Vuitton. This was one of my favorite looks of the night.

Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli Couture

Milla Jovich looked stunning in Elie Saab.

Cameron Diaz in Gucci. Another one of my favorite looks of the night, I thought she looked awesome.

Glenn Close looking fabulous in her tuxedo inspired gown by Zac Posen. She rocked it.

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen

Gwyneth Paltrow, simple, classy and lovely.

Tina Fey, beautiful in Carolina Herrera.

Missi Pyle looked like a goddess in this Valentina Delfino gown.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Kelly Ripa in Carolina Herrera

Anna Ferris in Diane von Furstenburg. I love how her blond hair pops against the black gown.

Sandra Bullock in Marchesa. I loved this dress!

Maya Rudolph super glamorous in this plum colored Johanna Johnson gown.

But as always, not everyone was a fashion winner…

Dre’s “It’s gonna be a NO” Oscar 2012 List:

Natalie Portman in Christian Dior. The polka dots are just gonna be a No. She already looks 16 years old, but the pattern on the dress makes her look like she’s going to prom not the Oscars.

Shailene Woodley is so pretty, I just can’t believe she chose this dress of all the dresses on the planet! She looks like one of those Star Wars fans that dress up for the ComicCon. I’m not sure what she was thinking, but this Valentino Couture dress is gonna be a no, for sure.

Viola Davis in Vera Wang. Ok, her make-up and accessories and the color of this gown are fantastic, but the gown itself is not. It looks stiff and tight and somehow its busy and plain at the same time! I don’t know what’s happening here. Sorry Viola. Still heart you though!

Rooney Mara in Givenchy. I did love her hair and especially her make-up but this dress brings your attention right to her bust line where there is nothing to see. Just saying.

Angelina Jolie and her leg in Versace. Actually, she and the dress are beautiful. She’s on my No list because she’s annoying and she’s still hungry. Can someone feed this woman and tell her the “here’s my leg” pose is obnoxious? Thanks.

Bernice Bejo in Elie Saab. The gown is quite beautiful, but that red hair is just gonna be a no against her skin tone and especially clashes with this sea foam colored gown. She missed the mark with this one.

Esperanza Spalding’s hair is what went wrong with this look. Just saying.

Melissa McCarthy in Marina Rinaldi. Um. NO.

Rose Bryne in Vivienne Westwood. She looks like a skeleton. Sorry, but I’m tired of how Hollywood pretends to not notice when someone is clearly starving. This bridesmaid needs a milkshake and double double cheeseburger, STAT!

Meryl Streep in Lanvin. It was Meryl’s night to take home the big award, but obviously it wasn’t for fashion. This dress looks like she stole right off the statue of liberty!

This concludes Dre’s Oscar review and fashion line up. I hope you enjoyed it! I had fun putting it all together for you! Thank you dear readers!

  1. LOVE it…totally agree on all fronts…MAJOR eye roll on “best actor”…Hollywood Reporter did some “analysis” on all the winners and why they were chosen…for best actor they had the shortest explanation and basically gave credit to the Weinstein’s and his publicist and left it at that…lol…score one for PR…ha!
