My 2010 Oscars Review!!

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards took place last night and I enjoyed the show. When I first saw Zoe Saldana on the red carpet… I gasped, because the bodice of her dress was breathtaking and I instantly fell in love. I thought she would be my standout person of the night. But as the camera began to travel down her dress, I realized I didn’t like the bodice of¬†her dress paired with the ruffles at the bottom of her dress. ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

With that being said, below are all the ladies whose dresses made me look twice:         


Vera Farmiga... Her dress was stunning!!



Queen Latifah...She was glowing, and you know how I feel about Pink, lol


Anika Noni Rose.. I really loved the top of her dress.



Elizabeth Banks...this picture doesn't do the dress any justice. I loved it!



Zoe Saldana... Loved the bodice, but didn't like the top half of her skirt.

My Other Thoughts:     

  • I loved that Christoph Waltz won for Best Supporting Actor.¬†He was soo¬†funny (yet soo¬†evil)¬†in¬†“Inglourious¬†Basterds”.
  • Mo’Nique¬†winning the best performance by an actress in a supporting role for “Precious” was my proudest moment.¬† Although, I¬†didn’t agree with the¬†first part of her acceptance speech… but overall, I was very proud of her. She deserved it!
  • Steven Martin and Alec¬†Baldwin were hilarious as the hosts for the night.
  • I was surprised¬†“Avatar” was not nominated in the Best Makeup Category.

What did you guys think of the show last night?
